    If this project was requested for Utah and not Nevada, it would most likely have been nixed on all fronts...feasibility, cost, endangered species, the neighboring states need the ground water, etc. This is approved because the Democrats (including Harry Reid) are in control.

    This is just another way for Obama to get back at the Republicans in Utah. It's cheap, shoddy politics.

    So if the Colorado River is not providing the water they need due to drought, what in the world makes them think the Great Basin Desert is going to be a more reliable source??? That is one of the driest areas in the United States, they'll pump out the ground water and it will be gone. The climate is likely to become drier, not wetter. It will be fascinating to see how this plays out in 30 or 40 years.

    Awful. Luckily Utah rarely experiences droughts.
