Dusted Up

It seems everyone's talking about the dust storms - including the scientists on the IPCC. The ABC tells me that the IPCC report predicts an increase in dust storms with climate change, as the conditions that cause them increase.

The same article estimates that the storm contains at least 8 million tonnes of dust. For statistics buffs, we put the same amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere every 2hr 45 minutes. (based on this rate)
