Danica Kloes's curator insight, April 8, 11:08 AM

I think the reality of a possible Dust Bowl is frightening for many people. Fortunately, we don't have to really worry about this possibility in our area of WA, but other places and states do. I will agree with what the author of the article said, that to keep this kind of stuff from happening we need to move away from GMO crops, monoculture farming, and start more organic, smaller farming plans. This may not seem like the most efficient way, but it will benefit us long term. If we producing food in this way, we should expect many more Dust Bowls to come.
