(Worthy News) – “California has been in dry conditions for much of the last 10 years, with only two years of wet,” Jeff Mount, senior fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California Water Policy Center, previously told Newsweek.
“The past three years have been the driest three-year period on record [dating back to 1895.] That just beats the driest three-year period on record from 2013 to 2015. And both of these three-year periods have been the hottest on record.”
For the last 23 years, the southwestern U.S. states have been gripped by a longstanding megadrought. Rick Relyea, director of the Darrin Fresh Water Institute at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, previously told Newsweek that the U.S had not seen a drought this severe for the last 1,200 years.
