COLORADO RIVER BASIN IS DRYING UP IN 'POTENTIALLY CATASTROPHIC' IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE

https://www.newsweek.com/colorado-river-basin-drying-potenti...

I live in the Colorado River Basin where water is getting to be an ever bigger problem. Over-allocated in the original Colorado River Compact and now the shortages are being made worse by climate change.

The study highlighted that climate change appears to have led to the loss of snow in the Colorado River Basin, which in turn is thought to have caused the body of water to absorb more solar energy, meaning more water evaporates.

The Colorado River has been suffering a drought due to higher temperatures since 2000, and researchers warn if trends of its flow dwindling continue there is a risk of severe water shortages for the around 40 million people and 16 million jobs it supports.
