One wonders how many signals the nation's leaders can ignore. The same goes for our Governor and Legislature. We read today that by August 16th or so the farmers in the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District will run out of water. The heat and drought now comes home to our valley. This photo was taken in July of 2005 from my brothers airplane. Cochiti Lake is in the foreground with Cochiti, Pena Blanca, Kewa (formerly Santo Domingo) and San Felipe stretching out behind.
Last night on the PBS news hour NASA scientists once again gave us an ominous warning. If you missed it please watch it here.
And so I applaud the young high school student who was profiled in the Albuquerque Journal this morning for suing the Governor and others for their lack of action on protecting her future. We need more kids like her.
