Update: Another U.S. “Dust Bowl” in the Making
Published by: Off The Grid News www.OffTheGridNews.com

As this report went to press, a new and disturbing report emerged from the U.S. Midwest. Farmers there are talking about a new “Dust Bowl,” similar to the one that plagued American farmers in the 1930s.

The original Dust Bowl was a period of time when millions of acres of farmland literally blew away. Overworked topsoil dried up when drought struck, and nothing could be planted in what had previously been productive farmland. Hundreds of thousands of people became homeless. They traveled from state to state as transient workers, laboring for starvation wages.

Now, Midwestern farmers fear it could happen all over again. Today, much of America’s farmland is irrigated using water from the Ogallala Aquifer. This underground, freshwater lake was first tapped in 1911. Today, it is being used up at an alarming rate and (according to Off the Grid News) will be dry in a few
short years. It takes thousands of years of natural forces to replenish the aquifer. Once it’s gone, a reliable, steady supply of water for crops will vanish … and the harvests could vanish right along with it. Fully 30% of America’s farmland depends on the Ogallala Aquifer for irrigation.
