Even Las Vegas Celibrates Earth Day!

Some may argue that this is off topic for this blog. I respectfully disagree! Is not Vegas part of the Earth? Perhaps not - everybody comes here to escape from the world. Vegas is out of this world, some say. Nothing like arguing both sides of the case.

Well, I'll leave it up to you to decide. Wherever you come from, be kind to the Earth, it's the only planet we have.

"The 25 million Americans who rely on the Colorado River for water should expect continued — and even worsening — drought spells and water shortages as rising temperatures and growing populations create a double whammy, experts warned in a new report.

Water conservation measures have helped somewhat, but consumption has boomed in certain areas. For example, Nevada's Clark County, which includes Las Vegas, saw water use double from 1985 to 2000.

'The combination of limited water supplies, rapidly increasing populations, warmer regional temperatures, and the specter of recurrent drought point to a future in which the potential for conflict among existing and prospective new water users will prove endemic,' the research council said in a statement that accompanied the report."
