This article covers a subject which sticks in my crawl space! It is about some state buying and reverting some natural river and tributaries to their own state.
Las Vegas,Nevada wants to move and pump water from remote springs in Utah and in Colorado to Las Vegas!
Nash points out that Great Basin water fro these regions is already in trouble due to sever srying in our environment. Naturally there are some zoologists like Greald Smith of the University of Michigan who point out that if we dry out these regions we will alos loose tiny organisms who have lived there all of this time.
In Colorado Nash says the Colorado river's tributaries are going down dramatically.
Nash points out soundly that until scientists can report the effect that these projects will have on the environemnt that they should not be undertaken.
What do you think?
