Biofuels Drying Up Lake Mead

Agriculture uses 87% of Colorado water.

A large percentage of that water is used to grow corn for biofuels.

“Water used in energy extraction, processing and conversion is a significant share of overall demand for water demand in the United States. It is likely to rise as we increase reliance on water-intensive fuels. Some of the fuels that have been promoted by government policies have larger-than-average water consumption, especially biofuels for transportation fuels. Corn ethanol has by far the highest water consumption of any fuel analyzed, largely due to irrigation during the corn-growing stage.”

They are sucking water out of the Colorado River to create biofuels, and then blame it on fossil fuels.

    Ethanol for fuels is like the klenkbird.
    Downward spiral of loss. More energy input, less output.
    So foolish one would think it can’t possibly be promoted as a viable solution.
    It does seem all these leftist ideas (i.e. all electric cars in california when they have brownouts now) are intended for hurting our country and creating chaos.
    That’s a demonic philosophy btw .

      “intended for hurting our country”? — Well, evil and stupidity surely play a large part in it, but how about deliberate avoidance of the truth in order to promote their career? Essentially: I got mine, good luck with yours.

    1. Define ‘climate change.’

    2. Explain, under the proposed definition, exactly how it is affecting Lake Mead water level.

    3. Unless linkage between ‘climate change’ and lake level can be established, ‘climate change is a major reason’ is BULL$#|+.

    Great work as usual. Thanks.
