The West with no Water merges weather and paleoclimate examine from a wide selection of resources because it introduces readers to key discoveries in cracking the secrets and techniques of the region’s climatic prior. It demonstrates that prolonged droughts and catastrophic floods have plagued the West with regularity during the last millennia and recounts the main disastrous flood within the background of California and the West, which happened in 1861–62. The authors express that, whereas the West could have quickly buffered itself from such harsh climatic swings by means of developing synthetic environments and human landscapes, our smooth civilization might be ill-prepared for the longer term weather alterations which are envisioned to beset the area. They warn that it's time to face the realities of the previous and get ready for a destiny within which clean water might be much less reliable.

Ein weiterer wichtiger Aspekt globaler Klimaveränderungen im Zuge der Erdgeschichte ist neben den Auswirkungen größerer Meteoriteneinschläge, vulkanischer Emissionen, der Kryosphäre mit ihren kontinentalen Eisschilden und Meereisdecken (BLÜTHGEN und WEISCHET 1980) und den Veränderungen im Erdmagnetfeld, mit der float der Kontinente gegeben. Die unterschiedliche Anordnung der Kontinente führte immer wieder zu Veränderungen von Zirkulationsvorgängen in den Ozeanen bzw. zur Modifizierung von Meeresströmungen und damit auch zu unterschiedlichen Gegebenheiten in der atmosphärischen Zirkulation.
