Climate change will disrupt not only the natural world but also society, posing risks to the world's economy and the food and water supply and contributing to violent conflict, an international panel of scientists says. The warnings came in a report drafted by the United Nations-backed
At the second annual Governor’s Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas, Governor Sam Brownback called on the Kansas Water Office, Kansas Department of Agriculture and Kansas Water Authority to join forces with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism an
Starvation, poverty, flooding, heat waves, droughts, war and disease already lead to human tragedies.
Weather geeks, say goodbye to your morning productivity.
Climate change provokes not just water rising up over our heads but emotional flooding as well.
Thanks to increased flows on the Dolores River from summer monsoon rains, the kokanee salmon had enough water to make their spawning run this year. Last year, there was no run because the lake was so low, explained Jim White, a aquatic biologist with Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Global warming and how it may change climates and affect the Colorado River has some in the valley concerned. On Monday, at Colorado Mesa University, a lecture was held focusing on the implications of global warming on the river. Eric Kuhn, general of the Colorado River Water Conservation, spoke to students and Grand Valley residents.
Even with some bonus inflow in September, the past water year Oct 1, 2012 – Sept. 30, 2013) ended up as the fourth-driest on record for the Colorado River Basin as measured at Lake Powell — the key reservoir on the river that helps balance supply and demand between the upper and lower basins.
Like nearly every other river in Texas, the 600-mile Colorado River — which flows from West Texas to the gulf coast — is under serious threat. Drought and surging population growth have taken their toll on the water’s flow and its wildlife and, by extension, on the farmers and fishermen who rely on it.
More storage is needed to prevent flooding and provide certainty for Western agriculture during droughts, U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton said Tuesday. “Without the ability to store the water that falls on Colorado’s slopes, the West as we know it would not exist,” Tipton said during a House water and power subcommittee hearing.
