I wonder how much water gary set aside for nuclear power plants and oil shale
Population growth is indeed THE problem. We can be far more efficient,
sustainable, reasonable, but the real problem is growth - and that is fueled by
population increases. It's a finite planet, it's a finite state, and
it's an especially finite, over-polluted, and over-populated Wasatch
Front.We need a revelation about large families and very high birth rates.
"Population growth is a problem. Slow the growth."NO...!
Population growth is THE problem. STOP the growth.
Ban golf. Here's a fun fact: During summertime, a 9-hole golf course in
Utah requires 1,000,000 gallons of water PER DAY to keep it green. Golf in the
desert is one of the least responsible uses of water in history.And
for people who are so easily amused that they find golf entertaining, we can
always entertain them by dangling some shiny objects they can chase.
We could start by encouraging people to landscape their yards in ways that
conserves water use. I know a green grass yard is quite the status around here,
but native vegetation and landscaping can be pretty as well.
One solution is to turn off the water that feed to LV.
