Coping with Megadrought in the Colorado River Basin

My NIDIS webinar from earlier this week is posted.

Key bits:

  • This year’s “sneaky drought” is a problem.
  • The longer term “megadrought” (climate change-driven aridification) we seem to be in is an even bigger problem.
  • We’ve done some great work in the Colorado River Basin reducing our use of water and building the institutional widgets to cope with scarcity.
  • We have more work to do.
