The decline in Lake Powell water levels ended in 2004, and the lake is currently gaining more than one foot elevation per day – with record snowpack remaining in the mountains upstream.

    There’s a 50% chance Lake Mead and Powell could recover to normal levels by 2021 because the models didn’t predict unusual excessive snow fall this year, damn I would say, “This is good NEWS”

  2. NoMoreGore says:

    This is terrible. Lake Powell served its purpose perfectly. Surely the end is nigh.

    • Jimbo says:

      If the snow melts greatly then Lake Powell bonanza. If it melts a little then global warming (while ignoring the huge amounts of stored water ‘waiting’ to melt) caused drought. It’s called droughtflood. after all. 😉

      It’s great fun dealing with warmists.

  3. Mike Davis says:

    There are new normal levels because the BLM of whichever government agency decided to lower the Normal level after the flooding event in the mid 80s to allow for excess run off events.

    It’s hard to be sure what is going to happen 10 years from now, even if people like IWB believe they can.

  5. DERise says:

    and in other news, It’s a 50 percent probability, a new Scripps study finds, that this coin will land head side up. Woo hoo! Is Science Great or What!

    Gavin Schmidt had a picture of Lake Powell on the cover of his book. I guess he will have to put the data through the Mannomatic to spin this one.
