( Natural News ) America’s largest reservoir is drying up fast , which could make states like Nevada, Arizona and California, and parts of Mexico, no longer livable in the not-too-distant future.
Lake Mead, which generates just under 40 percent of Las Vegas’ power supply via the Hoover Dam, currently sits at just under 1,044 feet. It is less than 150 feet away from becoming a “dead pool,” meaning no more water flowing through the Hoover Dam and no more electricity or water for every Southwestern city that relies on this resource for sustenance.
Since the beginning of March, Lake Mead has dropped by more than 23 feet, which is astounding considering its massive size – from one end to the other, Lake Mead stretches 120 miles. It turns out that Lake Mead has been dropping for many years .
Currently, the lake is at its lowest point ever since being filled nearly a century ago. And year after year, it drops continually lower due to prolonged drought conditions and possibly other factors.
“If Lake Mead were to keep dropping, it could be a couple of years until a danger zone at 895 feet is reached, which is the point water would no longer pass through Hoover Dam to supply California, Arizona, and Mexico,” reports Zero Hedge .
“Below 895 feet, the lake would be considered a ‘dead pool.’” How much longer before the Southwest runs dry?
Keep in mind that Lake Mead, like many other western water reservoirs, starts off wide at the top and gets narrower the deeper you go. This means that as water levels drop, so does the surface area of the lake.
Over time, the level of the lake drops exponentially more quickly, which some say is what we are now seeing as water levels plummet increasingly faster, unearthing […]
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
