Dust Bowl Distress

headline: dust arrives at america
1.) The dust bowl was a very harsh time in Americas history. ‘’The Dust Bowl drought of the 1930s was one of the worst environmental disasters of the Twentieth Century anywhere in the world.’’ ‘’Three million people left their farms on the Great Plains during the drought and half a million migrated to other states, almost all to the West. But the Dust Bowl drought was not meteorologically extreme by the standards of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. Indeed the 1856-65 drought may have involved a more severe drop in precipitation. It was the combination of drought and poor land use practice that created the environmental disaster’’. as you can see the dust bowl was a very hard time in America

the migrant mother 1936
I saw and approached the hungry and desperate mother, as if drawn by a magnet. I do not remember how I explained my presence or my camera to her, but I do remember she asked me no questions. I made five exposures, working closer and closer from the same direction. I did not ask her name or her history. She told me her age, that she was thirty-two. She said that they had been living on frozen vegetables from the surrounding fields, and birds that the children killed. She had just sold the tires from her car to buy food. There she sat in that lean- to tent with her children huddled around her, and seemed to know that my pictures might help her, and so she helped me. There was a sort of equality about it.

head line : is the dust on its way ?
One example how we could get another dust bowl is by “Direct human action on land cover is just one reason why dust is likely to increase. Climate change is another. As temperatures rise, persistent future drought in the West seems far more likely — and that means more dust. Drought strips away moisture that might hold down dust, kills off protective vegetation, and opens cracks in the ground that can furnish additional dust to the hot, dry winds Direct human action on land cover is just one reason why dust is likely to increase. Climate change is another. As temperatures rise, persistent future drought in the West seems far more likely — and that means more dust. Drought strips away moisture that might hold down dust, kills off protective vegetation, and opens cracks in the ground that can furnish additional dust to the hot, dry winds.” Another reason why we could get the dust bowl is by atmospheric flow tends to export far more moisture than storms can carry into the region. This is the case in other parts of the so-called subtropics, those areas directly north and south of the equatorial tropics. But as earth’s atmosphere becomes laden with heat-trapping greenhouse gases, it will be able to retain even more moisture. That means more evaporation from lakes and rivers, more moisture loss from plants, and drier soil
headline : 2 plan ahead
Have you ever thoghut about experiencing the dust bowl? Experience all the emotional distress. We need a plan and we need it now.
Are plan is to create a filtration system that runs under ground to a sterol environment aka a building. Then ship it to all the most needed areas. How do we get it on the ground. Are plan is simple you simply put it in a crop duster and take it to the most needed area, here are the steps : fill it, fly it, spray it, and you have just prevented the dust bowl.
