"Study Links California Drought To Global Warming"

"A new study is asserting a link between climate change and both the intensifying California drought and the polar vortex blamed for the recent harsh winter.

Usually, researchers make those links years later, but this study does it in real time.

Utah State University scientist Simon Wang who wrote the study say he hopes what he found can help researchers predict the next big weird winter."
