Scientists reveal Link between Iowa’s Drought and Global Climate Change

A report submitted from weather watchers confirmed that this year's drought occurred consistently as they predicted. For which, they blame the game that is being played by global climate change and its effects, which could bring more weather extremes like more frequent droughts etc.

The above report has been submitted by the officials this week under the name `The Iowa Climate Statement updates the 2010 report'.

Iowa's recent year's climate details will show that Iowa has been experiencing extremes since recent years, including the flood of 2008, which caused damage worth $10 billion, later concluding it to be the worst disaster in the state's history.

Second bad news for the state talked about this year's drought, which has left the croplands in the region parched and also reduced the corn yields across the nation's Grain Belt, from South Dakota to Indiana.

Last month's Superstorm Sandy has also been mentioned in the report, which severely devastated parts of the Eastern seaboard and killed more than 100 people. Approx 138 scientists and researchers from 27 Iowa colleges and universities have signed and released the above report.
