The effects of global warming on our world and society are yet to be seen in full effect, but as seen in California over the past years, it is evident that global warming is having an affect on our enviornment. With the rise in Earth's temperatures, droughts have been getting more and more common all over the world and scientists have made a new daunting prediction. Scientists are saying that the chances of the Southwestern Region of the US having a drought in the next century lasting more than ten years is over fifty percent. The same scientists continued to say that the chances of a "mega drought" or a drought lasting more than thirty years, is between twenty and fifty percent.
These predictions are scary because living in California I have seen what the drought can do to everyday life, and the fact that a much more severe and much longer drought will likely hit a big portion of this country in the coming century is daunting. We must stop ruining our earth and we must work to reverse the effects of climate change.
