I am a meteorologist and I forecast for Nebraska. Those theories might be wrong, but agriculture has surely changed the weather, especially the summertime dew point. A single acre of corn can sweat 4,000 gallons of water a day. Those circular fields you fly over are around 130 acres each. It is noticably more humid in the summer than before pivot irrigation was used.
