According to the scientific research, 200-300 years droughts in the west happened and more than once. I suppose you're right, they weren't the norm, but neither is the wet period for the last couple of hundred years either. There must be a happy medium there somewhere.

Folks out there are lucky as all get out for the Hoover Damn and Lake Mead. Lake Mead is in trouble.

Without Hoover and Mead, there's no way the southwest and California could support naturally the amount of people they have now. The lake has dropped 143 feet, if it drops another 175 feet, no more water flowing through the dam, no more water flowing to those 5 states and to Las Vegas, no more electricity from Hoover Dam. Which by the way, Hoover Dam has already been forced to cut back on the electricity produced.

Interesting.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
