• Bottom line: "Better start planning" for parched Southwest, says researcher
• Study, published in journal Science, yields "scary results," scientist says
• Computer models show transition to drier conditions due to climate change
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Changing climate will mean increasing drought in the southwestern United States, where water already
is in short supply, according to a new study.
"The bottom line message for the average person and also for the states and federal government is that they'd better
start planning for a Southwest region in which the water resources are increasingly stretched," said Richard Seager of
Columbia University's Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory.
