ATACAMA NEXT

The Atacama desert in Northern Chile has to make do with a single millimetre of rain a year.

Until now.

Brazil, Mevagissey and Queensland are just pawns in the great meteorological equation.

In March 2013 there will be a flood in the driest place on earth.

A year and a day later, India’s Cherrapunji will suffer a drought and lose its tag of wettest place on earth.

This sounds cataclysmic. It’s everything but. This is the beginning of climate stability. Extremes will fade away as we slip into a global mediocrity so mundane, we will start to pray and kill for storms.
