if you are interested check ou Lake Meade water supply -- Viva Las Vegas! Its levels could go lower than before they built the Hoover dam -- in 2010 -25 more feet (not meters) and they can't cool the power plants  Lake meade supplies all of Southern California, Vegas and parts of Arizona. The Vegas Hotels want to put in a 285 mile pipeline to steal obtain additional water from other places. After all you need canals in a desert right, its natural  ;D


Hoping this is sarcasm, but you never can tell .... it made me laugh ... euh sort of

Quote from: from the New Yorker article linked to above
“We are being forced to create a front lawn out of stones and, yes, cacti,” said Harland Dorrinson, a resident of suburban Sacramento. “I’m not sure that this is a world I would want to leave to my children.”

“Right now we’re looking at a situation where we have to choose between saving our climbing hydrangeas or our roses,” said Tracy Klugian, of San Diego. “We are no longer living like humans.”

Carol Foyler, a San Mateo resident who has watched her lawn turn from a gorgeous green to a hideous brown during California’s drought, said she blamed scientists “for failing to warn us of the true cost of climate change.”

“They always said that polar bears would starve to death,” she said. “But they never told us our lawns would look like crap.”

I did read about it : water waste is terrible in Vegas.
In 20 years Ca. residents will do like the long gone ISS : recycling piss for re-usable water and dry wash their hair.
Remember folks everything came to life because of H2O

The problem is more about population than water or greenhouse gases.

In my life time, the world population of humans has gone from about 2.4 billion to about 7.2 billion.  That's 3x in a very short time.  That sort of explosion is usually followed by a collapse in other species.

TCube,
When you post pictures, how about using a photo site and just linking to it instead of all the big images?

No offense but it's dodging the issue about the "confort and leisure" we want to live in.
The biggest rise of the Ca. Population in the 20th century was during the WWII production effort + 45% [war in the Pacific].
Water supply on the West Coast was ok then.

The population of California was 18,000,000 when I lived there in the 60's.  It's now 38,000,000.  Twice as many people, twice as much water, or more.

Las Vegas population growth is probably even higher.

I agree ... and in the neighborhood State N#3 on the list : the Colorado River does  not reach the sea any more.

there is plenty of water in the Ocean, as a matter of fact there is more than ever, and rising.

when I water my lawn it is pumped from my ground to the house where it then goes back into the ground.

maybe they need to stop crying about the lack of water, and just need to build more Desalination plants.

Yes, I know it costs more, so does Oil that will run out sooner, and is the real problem in our future.
