A new study from Dartmouth College suggests that the fate of the climate during the summer growing season in the U.S. Midwest remains uncertain as a potential consequence of climate change. The study was published in the journal Water Resources Research with collaboration from scientists at Columbia University, National University of Singapore, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The results are particularly alarming for the agricultural industry which is a critical component to the U.S. Economy and global food security.
Despite the widespread impression that in recent years there has been some respite and slowdown in climate change of the planet, in fact the aggravation of the problem continues uninterruptedly. This is the conclusion of a new US scientific research that challenges the estimates of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which, in 2013, had seen a "break" to climate change.
Satellites that monitor subtle changes in the Earth's gravitational field, show that the aquifers are over-pumped in many areas worldwide, without even knowing whether there are stocks or if water simply dries up.
