. Climate Change: Navajo Nation faces drought, fires, flooding « JO LEE MAGAZINE

INDIAN COUNTRY TODAY – In past years, Ben Farms grew only corn, but last growing season Ben decided to grow melons on the cornfield he manages. Farming puts food on the family’s table, gas in their vehicles and money for each of them to live. But he’s already concerned that it didn’t rain as much this year during the summer months, and that by late November it still hadn’t snowed. “Right now, we should be, at least, under a couple of inches of snow,” Ben, Diné, told Indian Country Today. “But we’re having 60-degree days where we’re going out in our T-shirts by mid-afternoon.”
