Less Water In The Southwest

Drought Monitor maps

I should leave this sort of thing to John Fleck, but I found an article at The Christian Science Monitor titled
The new water wars? Study shows broad decline in Rockies snowpack“. When I think of climate change I often think that the Earth will be fine, it’s our way of life that will be impacted.

While the shrinking snowpack in the 20th and early 21st centuries is not unprecedented from a climate-history standpoint, at no time in the past 800 years have so many people relied so heavily on these winter snows for their fresh water. The rivers and the drainage basins that feed them provide as much as 80 percent of the water used for irrigation, power generation, and other purposes by some 70 million people, according to the study.

Meanwhile most of the State of New Mexico continues to be in a drought.

Terrorist Mountain Lions

More on the war against Mountain Lions. According to KOB, two Mountain Lions were killed in Durango becuase they were suspicious.

The 50 pound cats were 2-years-old and because of their strange behavior, officials say they had not choice but to kill them.

Also they were seen carrying plans to the Death Star. Clearly these Mountain Lions are a threat to the American way of life and need to be eliminated.
