Man made climate change has been proven to be a hoax. Population growth will increase H2O demand so why don't these people and companies relocate to the great lakes area instead of complaining that there is no water in the desert (Nevada) that they live in?

International treaties prevent the sale of any water from the great lakes outside of its watershed. One hundred years from now this place is gonna be prime land, that is if the gas drill operations don't pollute the piss out of the entire system with their "proprietary" frac fluids.

Climate change a hoax? Every major scientific body in the world says your wrong. Just keep sticking your head in the sand and everything will be ok, right?

I guess some people still believe the sun revolves around in the earth.

The story quotes Robert Glennon, a Professor of Law at Arizona State University, not a climate scientist, who just makes general statements he attributes to climate scientists about the effects of "warmer, shorter winters" causing "less ice and more evaporation." Gross and unsound speculation which doesn't even deal with the cycles of evaporation and precipitation which applies to all water. Nor does he have any insight into the causes of climate change, or the demonstrable effects of it, or the costs/benefits of any efforts to tweak the global thermostat. Just an eco-intensive lawyer from a perpetually dry state providing a stupid headline for a gullible media source.

"When you have a shorter ice season you have great exposure to the air and more evaporation.

As temperatures go up it is very troubling," Glennon said.

"The cycles are going to become more acute which is very troubling."

very troubling,

very troubling,

very troubling

very troubling, indeed

Glennon doesn't believe that water diversion whether by pipeline, desalinization or more drilling are long-term answers.

He thinks conservation, water reuse, and better agriculture practices bolstered by higher,

oooooooh, here it is

seasonally-adjusted water costs will bring things in line.

oooooooh, here it is, feel guilty

"We pay less for water than we pay for cell phone service or cable television," he said.

"All of our incentives are wrong."

Let the "Professor" tell you how much your water bill should be.

It was your claim. Sack up or shut up. Global warming is the religion of morons.
The Left claims EVERYTHING is caused by global warming. This is just one more idiotic claim.
Thanks for playing along, stupid.

The science is settled and it proves there is no man made global warming. You seem to be about 5 yrs behind in your misinformation.

Fracking which poisons water and ground will add to the problem. Big media has Big Oil commercial telling lies about how clean and safe it is on constantly. Poison is good for you will be what they say next. Go ask your doctor...

I don't need to prove climate change is happening, thousands of scientists have already done that. If your too blind, or ignorant, or brainwashed by the talking heads, or whatever else to realize that, then whatever I say would have zero impact on your askew point of view.

I wish you were right, but your not.

screw the scientists...they're in it for the money. Spend some time outside; instead of in front of a tv,and form your own opinion. 27 degrees at my house this morning and the damn boiler is running like mad....

It isn't just the money. What happened is that a small group of zealots in the late 1980's were certain that human activities, particularly fossil fuel use, were damaging the planet. They proceeded from the nugget of scientific fact regarding the "greenhouse effect" of increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere might have on the global temperature. They created projections through computer modeling to predict what would happen to global temperatures into the future based upon various levels of CO2 concentrations in the air. C2 is a trace gas, less than 400 parts per MILLION in the atmosphere (4 molucules of CO2 out of 10,000), has been many times higher in the ancient past, and is essential to green plants and the production of oxygen. The computer models presumed certain "feedback" effects of increasing CO2 would heat the earth steadily, melt the ice caps, flood the coasts, etc. Their predictions did not pan out, and they admit the global temperature has essentially stopped rising since 1995--that's what much of the Climategate emails revealed, as the frustrated zealots could not explain reality deviating from their projections. Their erroneous, exaggerated doomsday scenarios had been peddled successfully to key politicians and scientific bodies, the leaders of which simply adopted the alarmism and are reluctant to admit they fell for flawed science. http://blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andrewbolt... Just one of many articles and peer-reviewed studies casting doubt on the claims to warming alarmists.
