A new literature of drought may be emerging — one that harkens back to the past, but also warns of an uncertain future.

For California, "drought of a lifetime," and hopes of El Niño fading: http://ow.ly/zbXai
Rainy seasons over the last two years were the driest in downtown Los Angeles since record-keeping began in 1877, and forecasters now say the El Niño that had been predicted to bring some relief may not materialize. ;

Chicago's @WBEZ fuses climate scientists & fiction writers in gripping look at #water-scarce future: "After Water," http://ow.ly/zEHd2
What happens 100 years from now if climate change has brought us to a point when water has become one of our scarecest resources, and more precious than oil or gold?
