Sustainability

Sustainability is the key, crops can be grown sensibly, I am not speaking of hippy dippy organic. As in all things, sustainability is key. The nature of man's use of resources in the Southwest is highly unsustainable. It could have been quite different if the 19th century government had listened to ...

Research

take a look at the effects of excessive diversions upon the entire ecosystem of the Mar De Cortez, once one of the most prolific fisheries in the world. All things are connected to all things. I dispute that diversions of water for urban or ag use from the Colorado River effect a net gain for either...

capacity

"In the summer of 1999, Lake Powell was essentially full with reservoir storage at 97 percent of capacity. Inflow volumes for five consecutive water years were significantly below average.

hiking

There is truth to the saying, "only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noonday sun." That saying came from the proclivity of the colonial masters to walk through the heat of the day... The locals tended to think the English crazy to be out in the noon day sun. Good way to lose weight though... In...

Mining

I am not sure your answer was related to my post. Mining, logging are all reasonable activities. However,, My daddy taught me to pick up after myself. We have a responsibility not to claw our way across some soft high country meadow in our rigs, leaving a scar of ugly chewed up earth. We have a resp...
