Climate change 'will dry Africa'

Two new studies predict that climate change will make dry regions of Africa drier still in the near future.

Computer models of the global climate show the Sahel region and southern Africa drying substantially over the course of this century.

Sahel rainfall declined sharply in the late 20th Century, with droughts responsible for several million deaths.

The research comes just after the latest United Nations summit on climate change opened in Montreal.

with that and the mini Ice Age in the North we’re going to end up cramming most of humanity into a thin strip around the Mediterranean and hoping it can support us.
