US Drought 'Man-made' Says Study

According to New Scientist:

The water shortages gripping the western US are the result of global warming, not natural variations in climate, according to a bleak study by hydrologists. The results suggest that water disputes will plague the region in the future and damage economic growth unless action is taken now, warn researchers. About 60% of the changes seen in river flow in the western US are due to warming caused by humans, their study suggests.
