I posted this article as a point of information only. It has certainly generated a lot of discusion. The point is long term there are going to be reduced flows in the Western Rivers. The facts are that most of the snow that makes these flows will come from the Colorado River drainage. There will be impacts on the rivers. Remember in the West water flows towards money. There are lots of people who depend on California agriculture and make big bucks from it. In fact everyone who grows irrigated crops in the west tends to make big bucks from it. So instead of using each other as dart boards you may want to start thinking about what you can do to protect this resource. Some of it will be donating dollars to organizations like AW, Nature Conservancy, Seirra Club, Trout Unlimited, etc. Another big part will be political, and another part will becoming up with effective solutions to reduce waste of the water resources.
