Dry spell could force Alberta ranchers to sell cattle prematurely
Climate change a big factor: professor

A "perfect" storm of factors have come together to create this year's
hot and dry conditions, said Dr. Mary-Ellen Tyler, who is a professor
of environmental design at the University of Calgary.

But the biggest impact? Climate change.

Did "climate change" cause the soil to be so dry 50 years ago?

To which climate type did the region change 50 years ago?

How permanent was that climate *change* if it took 50 years for the
conditions to recur?

A smell test of the whinge in the subject line reveals it to be a
steaming pile for the AGW agenda.

I drove through southern Alberta back in 1974...... it looked just like the U.S. southwest... cactus, prairie rattlesnakes and all, and very very hot. It would fit in really well with Hollywood westerns of Arizona, New Mexico, etc... which is why Hollywood has filmed some westerns there.

Not unusual for southwest Alberta to be almost desert like.... it is in a rainshadow area due to prevailing westerlies and the Rockies to the west.
