A study published in the journal Science Advances shows that the American Southwest and Central Plains could be on course for super-droughts the like of which they have not witnessed in over a 1,000 years. The researchers' empirical drought-reconstruction models project significantly drier conditions in the later half of the 21st century compared to the 20th century and earlier paleoclimatic intervals. 

What might the implications of this be? What related resources have you seen?
