    Regarding fish, as flow decreases in the river, temperature rises, and the hotter water is, the worse it is at retaining oxygen. So all cold water fish are dead because they cant survive in hot water period, and all large active fish basically suffocate, and all the fish that rely on those for food starve and/or suffocate.

    To illustrate how severe the issue is, I moved to Washington to fish the Puget Sound steelhead / salmon runs.



    Global warming has basically made the rivers emptying into the sound hostile to life. So the fishing is shut down indefinitely in the hopes that somehow the salmon/steelhead will magically adapt. On top of which, the rising temperatures are taking seasonal algae blooms in the sound and super charging them, meaning even less oxygen for fish/crabs.

    But the good news about those algea blooms is that if they happen often enough, rich oil deposits will form there, and be a plentiful source of cheap energy in the future.



    Oh, wait. That oil won't be ready for about 150 million years.

    First i'd like to address the committee and say my name is Larry Laffer, and I have a brief statement for you.
    this is a key example of NON CLIMATE CHANGE enviornmental disasters. They've simply used up all the water in that lake, and it surely doesn't get enough rain fall to fill it. it's in the middle of the desert ffs. it does get fed by the colorado river, but guess what, VEGAS is booming baby. more people using water (not even wasting it per se, just more people using it) means LAKE DRIES UP faster than it can be replenished. It has nothing to do with climate change. Humans aren't meant to live in the desert like that. that place reminds me of the mars colony from Total Recall.

    anyways, a key solution to this problem, would be a trans american pipleine that ships water from flooded areas to places that need it. so instead of the oil pipeline, we have a water pipeline that could say, prevent another Katrina disaster, while at the same time preventing what we see here with lake Mead.



    thank you for your time.

    I guess it's kinda interesting in a passing sort of way.

    Cheap water and unlimited growth some kinda human right?

    They need to choke their way back to a more reasonable presence in the middle of the fucking desert.

    This reminds me of the idiots in Phoenix who used to build in old arroyo's and dry river beds. Ten years later these house get washed away. Tough shit.

    Not really. Just ask the folks who built on the coast in nj but chose not to buy flood insc. We covered them. And not just for new low interest loans. No personal responsibility any longer.

    It's like the Flint Michigan water crisis. I have not yet understood why this is of any interest to me.

    If it's worth saving fucking pay for it. If your kid is being poisoned I don't think you have do get paperwork to cross the border into some other state. I mean not until Hillary is the target of White House shootings.

    The free market, natural selection & social Darwinism are dead.

    Apparently it's not all bad news. FOX scientists are predicting fewer drownings and many are optomistic that both Noah's Ark and a cure for cancer are just a few sunny days away.

    @lolwow
    hold on....you're telling me, that a question of "what happens to Vegas after Lake Mead dries up" isn't a question of environmental science.

    you're saying the solution to problems like this, which we have, and can do, like build pipe lines that shuttle water from flooded areas to drought areas (if we can move oil, why can't we move water right?) isn't environmental science.

    do you think the earth is flat? are you one of those people?
