smoke and fire
Ask those suffering from respiratory troubles in Miami. We are covered in smoke and ash from the fires in Georgia and the northern parts of Florida.
The "river of grass" is tinder dry.
Acquifers are suffering from salt water intursion.
Our largest source of fresh water, Lake Okechobee, is at it's lowest level in years - perhaps ever.
We need rain.
But more to the point, we need to change our lifestyles.
