Thanks so much for the feedback! Just fiddled with the description a little more and came up with this...


Wells were drilled to extract subsurface water for plant operations. Insufficient amounts caused the creation of a water pipeline to the large sea and reverse osmosis processing used to extract unwanted minerals.

Use of industrial water and a gradual cooling of the ecosphere causing water lost to permafrost has gradually reduced the hydrographic percentage, now 37 percent but not officially recognized.

Desert encroachment has made the environment increasingly arid and unsuitable for growth of Terran plants without sealed greenhouses.

Winds aloft produce severe traveling dust storms.
