Whitley recently wrote about signs of climate change in the Brazilian rain forest. Now there are reports that Iguazu Falls in Brazil has slowed to a trickle. This huge body of falling water is normally bigger than either Niagara Falls or Victoria Falls in South Africa.
Jorge Adorno and Terry Wade report that Iguazu Falls is usually one of the wonders of the world, with 350,000 to 400,000 gallons of water per second crashing over the rocks in a continuous cascade. Now the flow is down to only about 80,000 gallons per second, which is like turning the faucet in a sink almost off. The cause of this is the worst drought in Brazil in 20 years.
