Western States Face First Colorado River Water Cuts As Megadrought Drains Reservoirs

Western States Face First Colorado River Water Cuts As Megadrought Drains Reservoirs

I can’t remember the last time Guy McPherson talked about the “dustbowl that never ends”.  Now that it is a reality he has gone silent, it seems. Farmers in Arizona and Nevada, along with two Mexican states, will face cutbacks next year in a grim sign of what’s to come as the climate warms.
