Although drought issues have somewhat dropped off the Collapse Headlines these days in favor of Refugee issues in Europe, drought remains on onging and increasing collapse problem.  In fact it is actually a main driver for the Syrian refugee issue, many towns and villages in Syria inhabited since Biblical times have been abandoned due to a very long ongoing drought there.  Syria is at the epicenter of the Middle East drought problem.

From the Daily Mail:

Did climate change trigger the war in Syria? Severe drought may have contributed to uprising, study reveals 

  • Study finds that Syria suffered the worst drought on record before the war
  • Researchers say rainfall in the region fell by 10% between 2006 and 2010
  • Agricultural production in Syria fell by a third while the population soared
  • This led to an influx of people into cities causing rising poverty and unrest
  • This eventually led to the uprising that led to civil war breaking out in 2011
  • Scientists say drought was likely worsened by man-made global warming 

Drought problems are cropping up in other places also, the situation in Sao Paolo, Brasil has become critical.

And of course we all know about what is ongoing in CA and in fact many states west of the Mighty Mississippi, despite El Nino dropping floods on Texas, the Ogallala Aquifer continues to deplete at record rates.

So, for our new Collapse Survey TM this week, we are looking to find out how long before these drought issues seriously affect the Land of Good & Plenty, the FSoA.  When will Californicators resemble Syrians, and start trying to migrate en masse to Alaska?  Which Big Shities will be the first to go down the toilet and when?

Since the Collapse Personality Profile Survey TM shows clearly that Doomers are GENIUSES,  your input is welcome! 🙂

    Another drought of note is starting to get going here in South Africa! SA also has about 5m to 6m illegal immigrants who are starting to feel, they are to put it tactfully, NOT PARTICULARLY WELCOME. In the townships and shanty towns the way the UNWELCOME mat is put out is usually by means of unspeakabale violence. ISIS could take lessons from this violence!

    Did I mention the outrageous unemployment horror story? Yes, there is an official unemployment figure of about 40% and rising. Small wonder illegals are not flavour of the month now that the drought is getting into full blown status.

    If South Africa's major dams do not get a healthy downpour in the next two months then I fear for a real 'interesting times' future here on the southern end of the continent.

      Great to get some Boots on the Ground reporting from South Africa!

      I read about drought problems down there a while back.  Does not sound like things are progressing too well.

      Can Dutch descendants still migrate back to the Netherlands, until the Dykes give way?

      • David says:

        Hi RE. I'm a purely English descendent and I fear that me and my fellow Settlers, as we are contemptuously known as locally are going to be treated much like the other 5m to 6m settlers of a somewhat darker hue in the years/months to come.

        I get the impression now with the South African/ANC dotgov's enthusiastic pusuit of the 21st century's version of the Nuremberg Laws rushed through parliament to enable TRANSFORMATION or Uhuru by stealth us pale male Settlers are going to morph into a great big Final Solution before the next soccer World Cup rocks around.

        ESPECIALLY if we can have the blame-them-for-the-drought guilt/excuse hung around our collective necks.

        With us being conspicuously Caucasian white the ANC/dotgov can save themselves all that silly Yellow Star of David armband nonsense.

  • David says:

    Should any of the Doomers be interested in the drought scene in South Africa and the hour by hour weather, may I advise you click on:  weatherphotos.co.za

    It's an excellent site run by a (cover your ears children) white professor.
