As the world warms, water - either too little or too much of it - is going to be the major problem for the United States, scientists and military experts said Monday. It will be a domestic problem, with states clashing over controls of rivers, and a national security problem as water shortages and floods worsen conflicts and terrorism elsewhere in the world, they said.

At home, especially in the Southwest, regions will need to find new sources of drinking water, the Great Lakes will shrink, fish and other species will be left high and dry, and coastal areas will on occasion be inundated because of sea-level rises and souped-up storms, U.S. scientists said.

The scientists released a 67-page chapter on North American climate effects, which is part of an international report on climate change impact.

I heard one weather forecaster say the last storm we had looked more like a tropical storm than a regular nor'easterner. Preview of coming attractions.

WHAT'S AMERICA'S FAVORITE DRINK? THEY LOVE TO DRINK CANADA DRY!

That's an old joke up here that's not so funny anymore!











FYI- (Canada Dry is a ginger ale up here).

It is here too, DO.g's.

But drinking the Great Lakes does not compute well and that is what the southwest has in mind.
