Our friend Reina in Montevideo just emailed condemning our North American bias.
Reina, when you're right your right, other people have droughts too.
From the Universty College London Department of Space and Climate Physics who also have a pretty cool site, just not as quite as cool as the site below ..... kidding.
Interesting what a high percentage of drought is going on north of the equator, both in terms of the total area and as a percentage of land mass.
I dunno ... just sayin.
