It stretches out for miles, and scientists are pretty sure that it’s getting bigger. Yet this huge split in the earth isn’t a naturally occurring phenomena. No, the blame for it lays squarely on the shoulders of man. Arizona is America’s sixth-largest state. It sits in the south of the country and shares a long border with Mexico. In terms of climate, while the north of the state is home to forests and endures heavy snow in the winter, the south is a different kettle of fish. And it’s there that the strange crack has appeared. In the south of the state, the climate is considered desert. That means the area has long, hot summers and very mild winters. There are, though, actually three deserts in Arizona. The Chihuahuan Desert covers part of the southeast of the state, while the Mojave stretches into the west. The largest expanse of desert in Arizona is, however, the Sonoran. And it’s in the Sonoran Desert that this enormous crack in the ground has appeared. The strange feature stretches for two miles in an area known as Pinal County, which is between Tucson and Casa Grande. But while the crack has been there for a couple of years, geologists are only now discovering the scope of it – thanks to the use of new technology. Joseph Cook is a geologist who works with the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS), and he was the first to spot the fissure. He didn’t make the find using traditional methods, mind you. Instead, Cook was at his computer […]

    It's not only farmers that are causing this. It also from people wasting water or having water conserving landscaping, broken sprinkler heads watering the streets, etc. We've been in a draught for a very long time. I've been out here since 1982. I see less rain and snow fall every year. That makes a huge difference too.

    Farming? Anyone notice that there are no farms for as far as the eye can see in these pictures?? No wells either. I'm an Arizona native and have never heard a word about this.

    Water use by Phoenix is killing the plant life in all the surrounding area as far east as Payson and Globe, and dramatic drought this year is adding to the problem. Huge swaths of dead and dying scrub oak, juniper, manzanita, pinyon and ponderosa pine and cottonwood can be seen for hundreds of miles throughout the region, and it's a scary tinderbox right now.

    To bad they didn't truly show you what crawled out of that crack. My suggestion, lock your doors&windows at night and keep your dog inside.
