Amazon drought in 2005 caused by warmer oceans. Research analysis of climate and rainfall records by Brazilian Dr. Jose Marengo and colleagues has concluded that warmer ocean temperatures resulting from climate change caused the worst drought in Amazon history.

The drought drained rivers dry, froze commerce, and further escalated environmental damage as lands burned and released carbon filled fumes.

Dr. Marengo and researchers, thank you for giving us further evidence that time is of the essence to protect our environment and planetary home. We pray that the world will join in this globally conscious mission.
