Fifty Years Of Environmental Activism

On May 28, 1972 I testified at a Congressional subcommittee meeting held at Kanab, Utah in support of a wilderness area.

“May 28, 1972
Road, Wilderness Topic of Debate on Glen Canyon

“Seven congressmen, more than 70 witnesses and 350 supporters packed the sweltering Kanab High School gym for the day long hearing”

People keep saying how bad it would would be if Lake Powell dried up.  I’ve been hoping for that ever since the canyon was flooded almost sixty years ago.

    When I was in college at Kansas State, the 1993 floods ripped up a mile of soil and rock below the spillway apron at Tuttle Creek Res, as 60000 fps water flowed over. The Corps spent money 4 years later to cover a large swath of the immediate apron. As a geologist, it broke my heart. The next year flood waters again began to rise. I rooted for it to make it to the spillway again. Sadly, I was disappointed. The spillway remains covered. It was such a magnificent site after the flood, something I spent many hours studying during many geology labs.

    It is getting closer. Denver Water is working around the clock to divert and pump more Colorado River basin water eastward under the Rockies to support the growth of the Front Range megapolis.

    And of course the uneducated idiots of the media, government, and the brainwashed will continue to blame water shortages on ‘climate change’ – never increased human demand.

    Is the volume of water coming down the colorado into these reservoirs shrinking over the years? Or is it only increased consumption causing the lakes to dry up?
