 University of Arizona Geosciences Prof Emeritus Karl Flessa, and 45 year Arizona resident, has been studying the Colorado River since 1992. In a recent Guest Op-Ed published in The Arizona Republic (AZCentral.com) he discusses how over-use and climate change have led to Arizona’s water shortage and why many current and proposed adaptive strategies are insufficient to meet the State’s needs in a drier future.
