I was interested the attached article

ESRD Environmental Stress due to Rainfall Deficit does seem to be 'better' then blanket 'drought' with all of its connotations.

Will it 'help' the Public though ??

I don't think it's really meant for the public... After all, the public (if the Mail is to be believed?) can't even comprehend why a wet weekend doesn't cause an immediate lifting of a hosepipe ban...

Or translated. The reason why that tree is going yellow and dying is that it hasn't got enough water.
