Home / Solar Power / Western U.S. desert shifting east – 140 miles since late 1800s

Nothing more to say her other than be conscious of the changes occuring. We are past the precipice. The prepper folks are starting to look smarter.

SOURCEWest of the 100th meridian, population density declines and development is sparse, and farms are larger and primarily depend on arid-resistant crops like wheat. To the more humid east, more people and infrastructure exist. Farms are smaller and 70 percent of the harvested crop is moisture-loving corn. Studying rainfall and temperature data since 1980, Seager and his colleagues found this climatic boundary has already shifted east about 140 miles so that it now sits closer to the 98th meridian.
