Dust Storms

 This article describes a major dust storm in the southwest, and discusses the possibility of such events increasing.

I've been watching for reports like this, anticipating this as a likely effect of climate change.  (It may or may not be related, but even if not, climate change is certainly not going to help.)  America has had a Dust Bowl effect before, and handled it very badly indeed.  Given the current political climate, I doubt a rematch would fare much better.
