Scientists looked at data on the climate, as well as on tree rings dating back up to 900 years, giving an insight into moisture levels in soil over a long period of time.In research published in the journal Nature, the team showed that as the amount of greenhouse gasses pumped into the atmosphere rose following the industrial revolution, droughts spiked between 1900 and 1949. They then dropped between 1950 and 1975, when more aerosols were used: chemicals that can affect how much it rains and how clouds form. Since 1981, drought levels rose again, likely due to the rise in greenhouse gas emissions and government crackdowns on the use of aerosols. The team predicts the trend will continue in the coming years.
