Warning! Colorado River, Water Supply to Western States Going Dry!

Colorado-River-drying-up    The drying status of the Colorado River threatens three million acres of land––15% of the nation’s agriculture––water supply to 36 million people in Colorado, Nevada, Arizona and California, and the other waterways it feeds.

Bob Irvin, President of American Rivers, says the Colorado is the “lifeline of the Southwest.”  Irvin’ organization writes that the main problem with the Colorado is: “outdated water management that is inadequate to respond to the pressures of over-allocation and persistent drought.”

As The Extinction Protocol (EP) points out, “ . . . the 20th century was the wettest century in the western half of the country in 1000 years, and now things appear to be reverting to their normal historical patterns.”

The problem is this country has foolishly built cities in the middle of the desert.  As EP says:  “Cities all over the Southwest continue to grow even as the Colorado River, Lake Mead and the High Plains Aquifer system run dry.”

One of the lakes the Colorado feeds is Lake Mead, which supplies most of the water for Las Vegas, and which has fallen 130 feet lower since 2000.  After the Colorado feeds other drying lakes, Irvin says “ . . . it dries up to a trickle before reaching the sea. We simply cannot continue with status quo water management.”

Commenting on outlets like Lake Mead, American Rivers annual report cautions:  “Lower river flows threaten endangered fish and wildlife, along with the $26 billion dollar recreation economy that relies on the Colorado River.”

While Irvin’s organization rated the Colorado River Number One among endangered, American Rivers reports that American-Riversdrought and other aspects of Global Warming also affect nine other rivers near American cities:

Flint River in Florida, San Saba River in Texas, Little Plover Rover in Wisconsin, Catawba River in North Carolina, Boundary Waters in Minnesota, Black Warrior River in Alabama, Rough & Ready and Boldface Creeks in Oregon, Kootenal River, and Niobrara River.

In addition to water management, the organization cited: coal ash pollution, copper and nickel mining, open-pit coal mining, and improper sediment management as causes for ruining this nation’s waterways––all affecting wildlife habitats, property, crops, and floods as elements affecting the nation’s rivers.

In wholesale Christian Bibles, in the first chapter of his book, the prophet Joel describes drought, desolate animals, forest fires and drying rivers as he prayers for God’s help:  “The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered.

“How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; . . . O LORD, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field. The beasts of the field cry also unto Thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures . . .”  It’s time for Christians to pray as Joel did?
