The documentary was excellent (no surprise) but it left me in profound despair...for our past as well as our future.
Yeah, and if (when?) the situation arises again, I don't see the politicians working together for solutions as well as they did during the dust bowl.

I have a lot of appreciation for Howard Finnell. The change in weather patterns also helped, but his soil conservation programs did wonders. Kind of an unsung hero in US history.
