The Neoglacial Record of Montana's Glacier National Park: What does it reveal about the nature of 20th-century global warming?

Subject Index Summary
Drought (North America - United States: Central): The United States' Northern Great Plains is an important agricultural region of North America, providing a significant source of grain both locally and internationally. Because of its location, it is also susceptible to extreme droughts that tend to persist longer than in any other region of the country; and because of this fact, it is a good place to review the history of drought to determine if the region is presently experiencing a manifestation of the climate-alarmist claim that global warming will usher in a period of more frequent and intense drought.
