  • Las Vegas’ water intake now visible at drought-stricken Lake Mead

    Las Vegas’ water intake now visible at drought-stricken Lake Mead
    Lake Mead and Lake Powell upstream are the largest human-made reservoirs in the U.S., part of a system that provides water to more than 40 million people


    This photo taken Monday, April 25, 2022, by the Southern Nevada Water Authority shows the top of Lake Mead drinking water Intake No. 1 above the surface level of the Colorado River reservoir behind Hoover Dam. The intake is the uppermost of three in the deep, drought-stricken lake that provides Las Vegas with 90% of its drinking water supply. (Southern Nevada Water Authority via AP)

        The next ~20 years could see a recap of the pioneer days - only in reverse, i.e., a great migration of Americans from the West to the East.

            Yep. There’s a reason the phrase “Great American Desert” existed. We’re rediscovering that.

              The Colorado basin will depopulate. It has to.

                      Even Detroit in the south of lower Michigan is north of Canada. That's a strange fact I just learned this year.

                        Canada won’t take American refugees.
