With 15 experts from various backgrounds, we spent two days in the Escalante region above and below the high water mark. Please watch this KSL video for a recap of our successful study. The National Monuments surrounding Glen Canyon, critical components of the region's watershed and ecosystem, have come under attack by President Trump.
Thus, warming could reduce water flow in the Colorado by 20 percent or more below the 20th-century average by midcentury, and by as much as 40 percent by the end of the century. Emission reductions could ease the magnitude of warming by from 9. We must stay diligent in making sure this project never sees the light of day. The total cost was just 5 million dollars.
