Clock is Ticking on Las Vegas’ Water Supply

The news coming from the Southern Nevada Water Authority Thursday about the valley’s future water supply is worrisome. Unless we act quickly, there will be no water for hundreds of thousands of Las Vegas Valley residents in just three years.

Startling Water Predictions For Las Vegas

Startling new predictions about running out of water in Southern Nevada has sparked a flood of feedback from across the nation. There has been an overwhelming response from people living here as well as watching online.

It’s disturbing to see the Water Authority’s data, which shows a significant water shortage of drinking water from the Colorado River, even if all of the construction projects are completed on schedule.

Plans to pipe in groundwater from the Spring Valley are moving forward. But once operational in 2012, the pipeline will still not cover the water deficit. Las Vegas comes up short starting in 2010.

    Like in L.A.. Deport the Illegal Aliens and there will be plenty of water to drink, and open space on our roadways for us Americans.

    and less air pollution

  3. 3 DfD

    That would also help with the GLOBAL WARMING CLIMATE CRISIS! ha ha

    Toe-to-toe baby!!! Toe-to-toe

    I remember when Martin Sheen told me that we had room for everyone and I asked him about our water supply and he said all we had to do was not water the grass or the graveyards and we’d be okay.

    Sorry, but we do not have the resources or the infrastructure to support everyone comfortably. We need to cut way back on immigration and control our population before we really have problems like this all over the Southwest.

    I second that WatchDog. The fact is, is that our leaders accommodate a little too much. Rather than cut the cancer out of our society, they rather come up with very expensive ways to to further accommodate those who should not be here in the first place. It is like trying to tread water to keep yourself alive, but there is some illegal alien trying to crawl up your back trying to save it’s life. I can tell you that we all need to save ourselves as a Nation rather than to extend what we do not have. Seems as if the residents and leadership of Las Vegas just may end up doing without because of a population that should not be there in the first place.

    Simply get rid of those who use up our precious resources and it will solve dozens and dozens of the problems we as a Nation face day in out. The mexican illegals are running away from a country that has nothing left to offer, and they will head North to Canada when they also deplete what we have to offer. Simply put, they are nothing more than users and abusers.

    And now, a word from Herman Daly

    ?Environmental degradation is an iatrogenic disease induced by the economic physicians (pro-growth advocates) who attempt to treat the sickness of unlimited wants by prescribing unlimited production. We do not cure a treatment-induced disease by increasing the treatment dosage.?

    Now theres an economist with his head screwed on straight.
    That about cuts right to the chase doesnt it?
    Heres an article by him
    http://www.worldpolicy.org/glo...../daly.html
    ZPG has its nasty side too, and I think that some of them have co-opted him for their ideological use. That, however, would not undermine or negate any truth presented in this article.
    (ZPG is Zero-Population Growth, a moribund ‘movement’ of the 70s, which still has some die hard believers, but for the most part is abated. at least for now.)

    I have a friend who lives in Las Vegas.
    He went to college for 4 or 5 semesters
    during two of those semesters, he took an economics course.
    Because of this, no one has a tighter grip on understanding of economics
    or a clearer view than he on how things ought to be
    Needless to say, he is a bushbot
    and a radical freemarketeering globalist
    (but only on the cheerleading squad)
    I think he lives in Las Vegas because it represents a middle finger shoved in the face of “stodgy, puritanical America”
    and proves that Something for Nothing really is the natural order of things.
    He needs to see the Stratosphere Tower to reaffirm his beliefs .
    Occasionally, the subject of water usage comes up, and, just like all irretrievable addicts, his mind contrives the most impossible reasonings and justifications for how LV will never go dry and how its “growth” is a good thing.
    There is nothing that can dissuade him from his convictions.
    I would imagine that the amount of water that evaporates every day from LVs many fountains alone is enough to supply a small town. Thats good, filtered drinking water. Tap water.
    He squeels with delight at peoples disgust with the suicidal extravagence of it all.
    HIs is a remonstratory faith, one that is not simply a formal set of beliefs meant to frame ones thinking and guide ones action-it is a faith that is meant to teach (those idiots) a lesson and rub their noses in their own stupidity.
    He can cling to his darling delusion only so long as the neon lights reflect off the sparkling fountains
    There will come a day however, when all the water will be gone, and none will be there to be bought for any price-Colorado is having its problems too, Utah, California.
    At that time, LV will dry up and the Stratosphere Tower will stand crumbling and alone in the desert as an exclamation mark to the sentence:
    ONLY IDIOTS BELIEVE YOU CAN GET SOMETHING FOR NOTHING!

    Man…. Has anyone here read the book “Collapse” by Jared Diamond? I think very soon we could add Las Vegas to his list of sociaties that grew hit a peak and then collapsed because the society did not see the warning signs of their imminent collapse. Even worse, many societies see the signs of trouble, but don’t know or just refuse to solve or correct the problem.

    Las Vegas… That’s your warning sign… What are you going to do?

    The U.S. Comptroller has blown the horn by warning us that the U.S.A. is in a dire situation that paralells that of the Roman Empire bofore it collapsed.

    America, the warning signs are all over… will you wake up and do something about it?

    Vincent,

    Here is a poem for your friend who lives in Las Vegas.

    I met a traveler from an antique land
    Who Said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered vissage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stampt on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mockt them and the heart that fed:
    And on the pedestal these words appear:
    ‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

    “Ozymandias”, by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1817)

    You will find this very poem in the page before the contents section of Jared Diamond’s book “Collapse”.

    For all I know, we could easily replace the sculptor with your friend and the Ozymandias’ statue with the Stratosphere Tower.

    I know a guy just like that Vincent, he loves Thomas Friedman, believes in open borders, thinks Bush is the greatest President ever, China is our greatest ally (after Saudi Arabia and Pakistan) the Federal Reserve is necessary, we will invent our way out of shortages of natural resources, etc etc, Idiots like this refuse to look at reality and they shape their thought patterns around the philosophies of radical anarco-capitalists and NeoCon PNAC types like R.Pearl, Rove, Wolfowitz etc. I think he is getting behind Giuliani now… When we get into this type of discussion, he starts yelling and it escallates to a near fist-fight. One time I had to wack him with a piece of PVC flextite tube to shut him up and calm him down…It is as if this thinking is a religion and challenging his belief system makes him go postal. I don’t think that there is a cure for him, he drank the whole punchbowl.

    Thanks, Sky.
    buy you a round at the Elvira party!

    Matthew,

    Ya let the Canadians take on some( Illegals) for awhile, until they figure out that they are leaches. After they figure out what kind of culture they bring, they will be pissed off like Americans. I will really laugh when they want them out like we do. I really hate to see them destroy some of the most beautiful country in the world.

    The water is just like the houses being built. It is supply and demand that drives up the prices of houses, and we just keep building more. The realtors also do it too!

    The water is always wasted because, they don’t know how to the conserve in their toilet (Mexico). They don’t have water in Mexico in many places and they abuse it like they have never seen it before.
