ABSTRACT
The article informs that the Texas Agricultural Extension Service has attributed $1.75 billion in direct losses to the 1998-1999 drought, approaching the $1.95 billion loss from the record drought of 1996. In that episode, 66 of Oklahoma's 77 counties were declared disaster areas. Officials estimated the state's agricultural-related losses at $2 billion. Scientists with the U.S. Global Change Research Program have predicted that warming this century will increase significantly over anytime in the past century. In their draft report, "Climate Change Impacts on the U.S.," the team says rising average temperatures are very likely to be associated with faster evaporation of water and more extreme precipitation. INSET: What is drought?.
