Climate Change and Drought

Plug... "Drought caused by global warming"...into the Google search engine and you get over 3.9 Million results.  You will see "serious" articles from the BBC, ABC News,  CNN...etc...

However, how about a truly science driven research paper that takes a look at the specific factual data?  Here's a post by Anthony Watts at  highlighting such a research paper presented by scientists, Justin Sheffield, Eric F. Wood, and  Michael L. Roderick.
More realistic calculations, based on the underlying physical principles8 that take into account changes in available energy, humidity and wind speed, suggest that there has been little change in drought over the past 60 years.
Little change in drought over the past 60 years.  That seems true scientists (not the media).
