Climate Change



The affects of climate change or "global warming" raises serious questions on a major river system.  Colorado River District General Manager Eric Kuhn presents scientific findings that suggest that the Colorado River is facing a future with less stream flow. The implications of less water in the Colorado River are very disturbing, not only for the State of Colorado and its sister Basin States but for the nation as a whole.
