The Dust Bowl

the worlds largest man-made disaster.

why was the Dust Bowl so critical?

the reason this event was so important to american history is because its devastating events ripped the heart of the crop land straight our of the ground. (burns) states “the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, in which the frenzied wheat boom of the "Great Plow-Up," followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation.”

Why do we spent so much money on agriculture related business?

The reason behind our investments.

Without the money we pour into this system, our nation would not be fed, which is a MAJOR problem. WE HAVE TO EAT. According to the USDA (united states department of agriculture 2007) we are the leading country in crop and beef exports. But we would not be where we are today if we didn’t take precautions. New technologies that we spend so much money on today go to the fact that without properly managing the land, we will soon end up just as we were on April 14, 1935 when the dust bowl occurred to be exact; the name is commonly referred to as “black Sunday”. if that doesnt clear it up for ya'll we have to give money to this organization, or else our we will end up loosing our valuable crop lands.
