About drought, the South West United States and an uncertain future.

My own thoughts are that our current situation cannot be blamed solely on man made global warming. Why? It takes decades to to see what the causes truly are. The article in the New York Times talks about two previous Mega Droughts we had. Happy reading...

"Beginning about 1,100 years ago, what is now California baked in two droughts, the first lasting 220 years and the second 140 years. Each was much more intense than the mere six-year dry spells that afflict modern California from time to time, new studies of past climates show. The findings suggest, in fact, that relatively wet periods like the 20th century have been the exception rather than the rule in California for at least the last 3,500 years, and that mega-droughts are likely to recur."

Climate is much more variable than most people think. As a geologist (currently non-practicing), I find the ideas that sea level and temperature (global or otherwise) should be stable to be laughable. They have never been stable throughout the history of the planet.

This was a hoot to watch. It addresses the problem of water from the Colorado River to reach the delta. Very clever marketing . The problem exists because of several variables - water rights, less flows and over allocation of the river. Oh yes, it's an international thing too.

Solutions will not be easy. Making the public aware to the issues that the river has is one method. Funny thing. There has been public meetings about the river for years and the general public never was in attendance. 

Perhaps it will take a Hollywood touch to make people aware of the issues we face on the Colorado River and elsewhere in a parched West.

Good morning fellow travelers.

What a long strange journey its been.  I've been following the exploits of fellow G+er +Liam Parkin and his odyssey of traveling around the world on his Honda C90 motorcycle. Actually, fascinating to read as Liam gets into scrapes and learns about the world at ground level. Currently, he is in Africa and has to postpone his journey. One of his most interesting posts was Journal 5. I was particularly interested in the observations that he made about Ghana (halfway down the post).
http://www.liamandc90aroundtheworld.com/2014/03/journal-5-from-bamako-mali-through.html

I suggest that you read Liam's post before looking at the photo essay on Ghana (below). It was an interesting essay to say the least. 
Hover over the image for navigation and full screen controls Krzysztof Maniocha In the Name of Jesus play this essay ; How do you praise your God? How do you pray to Him? Do you believe in Jesus Christ? Ghanaians believe. Posters and billboards advertising conventions, new churches, miracle prayers, religious matters of all sorts [...]

Ain't that the truth of it, Snuffy. I suffer from Tinnitus. Only hear tones below 1 KHz without attenuation. Still, I can hear in stereo with some sound processing.   ;D
