Show Notes Chapter Markers

Entire societies have collapsed due to insufficient access to water - as a matter of fact, drought is perhaps the #1 reason for civilizational collapse in the past.

Many parts of the  world are currently experiencing the worst drought conditions since records began - and it's only going to get worse with climate change. This episode explores the dangers of drought, why it will continue to get worse, and what we can expect for the future.
