The Colorado River is the nation's most endangered waterway as climate change and overuse threaten its future, according to a new report.
Why it matters: The river provides drinking water to 40 million people in seven states and 30 tribal nations, not to mention it drives the region's agriculture and outdoor recreation industries.
Threat level: The Colorado River is "ground zero for the climate and water crisis" in the West, according to the report released Tuesday by American Rivers, an environmental advocacy group.
Rick wrote: The Farmers almanac said something like, Colorado is going to be in the hibernation zone with lots of snow and cold this winter.
Too bad that almanac is less accurate than me with a golf club.
I have seen the Royal Gorge recently and it bummed me out. Hopefully this turns around soon.
