Could the Dust Bowl Happen again in Kansas?

dvd-dustbowl-splshThis is the topic that everyone has been discussing since Algore left Kansas City last week.  The simple answer to this question is yes, but not because of “global warming/climate change/insert token phrase here”.  The real reason that this could happen is due to the drying up of the Ogallala Aquifer.  This water table is responsible for the irrigation of most of this countries farmland in the Great Plains and is currently running low. 

Now I am not one that believes in man made global warming or  man made climate change but I do believe in the depletion of a water table.
