Man-made global warming worsens the extreme drought in the American West because of its excessive heating. Farms in California receive inadequate water supplies, leading to crop losses.

In order to minimize future damaging effects such as these, Americans should join forces with other nations of the world to reduce use of fossil fuels so that greenhouse gas emissions are lowered.
