In this episode of the RANE Essential Geopolitics podcast, powered by Stratfor, Emily Donahue speaks to Stratfor Director of Analyst Operations at RANE Rebecca Keller. The drought in the Western United States is likely to last at least through fall 2021. And rain won't necessarily end conditions there that have been building for 20 years, such as population and building density, higher temperatures, and changes in rain and snow patterns. The drought is so extreme that the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation recently declared a water shortage on the Colorado River. We discuss the impacts of that decision.
