If you’d like to get a visual impression of how climate change appears to be affecting the country, the National Drought Mitigation Center has a map showing the areas of the lower 48 which are suffering conditions from abnormally dry to exceptional drought. Brace yourself, a quick look gives the impression that almost half that area is suffering. http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/MapsAndData/WeeklyComparison.aspx
