    It will happen again. Dust Bowls are a lot older than man on the Plains. They've happened before us, they'll happen with us and because of us, and they'll keep on happening long after we're gone.

    Remember the original dust bowl was during the Great Depression. Not having major economic problems in addition to a dust bowl would ideally make it not seem as bad.

    Re: The Dust Bowl: Could it happen again?

    It all comes back to the worlds population, or should I say over-population. We need a plague-like event to happen and take out 1/6 of the population and many of the "problems" would be easier to handle. As gross as that is to say, it's pretty much fact we need to slow down the growth as much as possible or things (economy, food, "man made global warming") will get worse.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.
