Climate change to worsen severe water shortages in US Southwest
Treehugger - 2/11/2011.
By Brian Merchant – We're already well aware that the American Southwest, which is naturally hot and dry, is seriously strapped for water. The situation is getting worse every day as populations in California, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico continue unimpeded growth trends. Add in a new study that reveals climate change is going to dry out the region even further, and we're slated to see a potentially catastrophic water shortage.

LePage's Secret Puppeteers
