The United States will suffer deadly droughts not seen in hundreds of years. Experts say that since 1600 AD, the United States has not experienced such a drought caused by global warming and the climate change crisis, which will hit the southwestern side of the country.

The last droughts in the United States were in the Middle Ages, which led to dehydration of rivers and forest fires, and experts strongly warned that such a drought would recur for decades, causing severe water shortages.

Some experts point out that the area of ​​California and New Mexico may be on the brink of one of the worst droughts in 1,000 years.

The research team compiled a data set combining climate models, observational data for ice and lake and tree deposit records. After studying climate and ocean temperature data from the past two thousand years, they found that three complex climate changes should play a role in a massive drought.

“What’s new here is that they are assembling the parts together in a way that has not been done before, and they warn of more deadly droughts,” said Connie Woodhouse, a climatologist at the University of Arizona who did not participate in the study.
