“Displacement” as a theme has been cropping up more and more. We have heard about how rising waters are displacing some people, while a lack of water has others scrambling.
This particularly hurts farmers, which in turn hurts workers and affects food supplies and prices. Be prepared to pay more for your produce this year.
In the future, we could be faced with even more terrain changes. This report from a place called “Burnt Creek” talks about jojoba, mesquite bosques and desertification.
I’m not certain this is the same place mentioned in the voicemail, but there is a Burnt Creek in North Dakota that is currently a lush area near the Missouri River that’s prone to flooding.
How do we get from today’s Burnt Creek to the Burnt Creek of 2041? Is there any way to prevent it?
