         the persians irrigated so extensively that the euphrates dried up before reaching the sea. 
         if it were not for the gulfstream the climate of florida would be very different.
         if man would block the passage that allows the labrador currents to penetrate new england, the gulfstream would enter and give the area a wonderful climate, much warmer winters than they now suffer.

      Something I havn't seen mentioned is the over-irrigation of many of these areas. When you irrigate an area such as was the case around the city of Babylon what happens is a high evaporation rate and this leaves a high salt content. The area is then a saline sterile area. And if U. S. farmers aren't careful this will happen in california and Florida. rwscruffy
