Can anyone point to data that strongly implies there is a clear, direct, and proprotionate climate cause here? It seems more like decades of mismanagement met a dry year, which can happen no matter tue amount of 'oil company pollution' and independent of a 2deg temp rise.

This just seems like lazy journalism playing to their base. Maybe I am jaded.

Let it be known that I am not a skeptic, but frusturated with the general level of discoure in the media which I feel just emboldens skeptics and deniers.

You're not crazy, this article is lazily written. It reads like political propaganda.
