Deliver Us From Drought
Correspondent: Thomas Morton
Texas has been experiencing the worst drought in its recorded history for the past three years. 97% of the scientific community agrees: climate change is happening because of human activity, and it's causing extreme weather around the world. But many Texan legislators, community leaders, and citizens don't attribute the state's drought-which has devastated agriculture and lost thousands of jobs-to climate change, and have taken no initiative to change their title as the state with most CO2 emissions in the country. Thomas Morton went to Texas to witness the climate catastrophe, and discover firsthand the local responses.
