Government : Colorado River To Run Dry

Report: Climate change worsens Western water woes
(AP) – 3 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — Climate change is likely to diminish already scarce water supplies in the Western United States, exacerbating problems for millions of water users in the West, according to a new government report.

A report released Monday by the Interior Department said annual flows in three prominent river basins — the Colorado, Rio Grande and San Joaquin — could decline by as much 8 percent to 14 percent over the next four decades. The three rivers provide water to eight states, from Wyoming to Texas and California, as well as to parts of Mexico.

    I’m almost certain – without even bothering to look – that these kinds of forecasts/projections/whatever are grounded in unquestioning acceptance of the IPCC scenarios of temperature change. Given that IPCC scenario forecasts have been consistently higher/hotter than reality for more than a decade, no credibility is owed to these dire warnings.

    The biologists/ecologists are famous for such piffle but, hey, it gets published and they get a sympathetic press release.
