[Discussion] Climate Change

This thread is just to post interesting news, thoughts, opinions about climate change.

Line gets fuzzy though.

That's why people break down the 77-83 or so group into a sub group. They have that independent play outdoor upbringing without Internet like Xers that a lot of millennials don't. But they had Internet as a teenager and are more acclimated to computers, email, etc than those older Xers, fit in with millennials more. And lots of other things but that's some general stuff I've seen repeatedly.

I believe the biggest heartbreak to come next will be chinook salmon going endangered. It's going to happen sooner or later.

Well, then stop eating them? ;)

In all seriousness, I feel like I'm living in the twilight era of fishing for Chinook salmon. I figure I'll enjoy the last few years of fishing for them before it all gets shut down.

Chapter 1 of The Water Knife.

To prevent unsustainable development in a desert state, Arizona passed a law in 1980 requiring subdivisions with six or more lots to show proof that they have a 100-year water supply.

But developers in Rio Verde Foothills have been sidestepping the rule by carving larger parcels into sections with four or five houses each, creating the impression of a miniature suburbia, but one that did not need to legally prove it had water.

Here's the important bit. The developer cheated the system and left everyone else holding the bag. I would say sue them for damages but I would bet whatever entity built these houses has long since been dissolved.

Was this the same place that refused to add "more government" or was that yet another AZ burb running out of water?

Pretty sure that was this place since they are an unincorporated area. The thing is if they would allow Scottsdale to incorporate them the city would be obligated to make water accessible to them but given the area this is in I can guess the average mentality at work here. Better to die thirsty than a big government liberal.

Appears so.

When some proposed forming their own self-funded water provider, other residents revolted, saying the idea would foist an expensive, freedom-stealing new arm of government on them. The idea collapsed. Other solutions, like allowing a larger water utility to serve the area, could be years off.
