Pro Publica is publishing a five-part series on water politics in the West: Killing the Colorado.
I tried to find an exemplary quote, but there are too many. Worth your time to read, even the comments are reasonable.
Update. This is the fourth time I’ve posted a link to this series. The first and second were on Twitter and the third was on Facebook. None of those are as easy to remember as putting something here, so here it is.
In my posting on Facebook, I noted the book Cadillac Desert and in response got a link to the PBS series on the book.
