America is Drying Up

 

We knew this would happen and it happened. The federal government has declared a water shortage at Lake Mead and will now mandate water supply cuts to governments and farms.

Lake Mead is an important reservoir for the Southwest, particularly Arizona and Nevada. Climate change and the intense summer heat caused water levels to plummet to 40% capacity. Experts call this the “drought of the century.”

The cuts will impact Arizona farmers the most. The state will lose 18% of its share of water from the river. Nevada will lose 7%. Mexico will lose 5%. Produce from these areas will undoubtedly get more expensive as it gets harder and harder to grow.
