Brazil's very own Dustbowl

Brazil's Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira has said the country's three most populous states are experiencing their worst drought since 1930.The states of Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais must save water, she said after an emergency meeting in the capital, Brasilia.
Water, as currently in the American West and Southwest, is no joking matter. Something more than 50% of the human body is composed of water. And food production .... hell, even the neo-conservatives might pay attention: Without food, how could you possibly create a good and righteous and lucrative war?
