As California finally experienced the arrival of a rain-bearing Pineapple Express last week, two climate scientists have shown that the drought of 2012-2014 has been the worst in 1,200 years.
A new study from NASA and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory has revealed that the drought of 1934 was not only the worst of the Dust Bowl, but the worst drought felt worldwide in the last 1,000 years.
