Improving Climate Of The The Northeastern U.S.

The climate of the Northeastern US has improved dramatically since 1970.

Few people remember this, but prior to 1970, the Northeast was in drought most of the time, with the 1960’s being the driest. During the 1960’s the Northeastern US was in drought eight out of ten years.

I remember visiting my grandparents in new York during the summer of 1965, and they wouldn’t give you water in restaurants. We had drink soft drinks.

The Northeast has very few forest fires now, but they were quite common prior to 1970.
