    Why Is Thelma Grimes Writing this article about dust storms and microbursts as if they are “becoming more common”? Just because they have new names doesn’t mean they are “becoming more common”.

    Or is it perhaps that this propaganda about climate change is so pervasive in the minds of the younger generation that they actually believe that every weather event that has the potential to cause damage is new and “becoming more common”.

    Thelma, as a boy living on the outskirts of Tucson in the late 1940s through the 1950s I was fascinated with the regular occurrence of dust storms but my mom hated them because back then our houses did not keep all the dust outside. We looked forward to the rain, yes, the microbursts to settle the dust and water this dry thirsty desert.
