The article offers information on a study conducted by the Stanford University which reveals that global warming is the reason for drought in California. Topics discussed include parching of farmlands because of lack of snow, decline in inland shipping channels because of lack of snowmelt, increasing chances of drought due to increase in temperature conditions and decline in precipitation, and dry reservoirs of water.
