Stuff I wrote elsewhere: San Juan-Chama supply at risk from climate change

Concerned the current drought will end? No worries, climate change has your back:

Climate change is likely to render a key part of the water supply for Santa Fe and Albuquerque increasingly unreliable in coming decades, according to a new analysis by federal scientists.

The San Juan-Chama project, which imports water from the mountains of Colorado for use in New Mexico’s most populous cities, is likely to see shortfalls in one of every six years by the 2020s, and four out of every 10 years by the end of the century, according to researchers at Sandia National Laboratories and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

It seems I will never lack for water problems about which to write in the newspaper.
