Can the Dust Bowl occur again in the US?

    This answer is not so cut and dry. The drought that led to the Dust Bowl could occur again. As with all weather phenomena a drought can occur whenever the conditions are right. However, due to better farming techniques and soil conservation it is unlikely that the dust storms that accompanied the Dust Bowl drought will return. The main reason for the catastrophic economic and social effects of the Dust Bowl were due to over farming and poor management of the land.  Farmers were being pushed to use every acreage of farm land available because of World War I.  By the time the severe drought of the 1930s hit, the land had already been destroyed. Farm land had become fields of dirt and dust.
