A drought by definition is a period of time ranging anywhere from several months to several years in which an area experiences a deficiency in its water supply. Nearly every part of the US will go through periods of reduced rainfall but droughts are increasing worldwide and becoming more common. By having a better understand of the types of damage a drought can cause, we can better prepare and make plans to counter the disaster situations created by droughts.
Wait… a famine? Yes. And the threat is much more real than you would have imagined. The idea of a worldwide famine in these modern times may at first seem far-fetched but the truth I’m about to share will change your mind of that forever. You don’t need to go farther than the pages of recent history for ABSOLUTE PROOF that a debilitating food shortage is not only likely, but may in fact be just around the corner.
