"Amateur Traveler episode seven hundred today. The amateur traveler talks about Spanish explorers native Americans a volcano crater cactus and canyons of various sizes. One really really grand and one really really small as we go to the National Parks of Arizona. Welcome to the immature traveler. I'm your host Chris. Kristen sending this is indeed episodes. Seven hundred of the amateur traveler as we approach the fifteenth year anniversary. So let's celebrate a and now let's get back to work. Let's talk about Arizona. I like to welcome back to the show. Gary Aren't from everything. Dash EVERYWHERE DOT com. Who's come to talk to us? About Arizona? National Parks Carry. Welcome back to the show. Thank you for the. What is it? Fifteen or sixteen. So it's not like it's been that long since I've talked to Gary Gary and I also have been a CO hosting this. We can travel with a couple of other friends for ten years now so we get to talk periodically but you pitched me going to Arizona and seeing national parks I would say why should someone do that. But you already said national parks so Arizona just has the Grand Canyon right well. That's that's the big one I would say you're looking at. That's what it's best known for but actually Arizona has twenty two different national park service sites. Which places at third amongst all states as far as the number of sites behind California and Alaska only having some second now that I think about it but yeah there's a lot and I've been to a lot of these but you actually came up with some that I'd never heard of so. That was one of the reasons that I was anxious to. Have you back on the show and talk about this but let's talk about? Why should someone go to Arizona and see the national parks? Well for starters you can go year round and I think that something that you can't do easily in a lot of parks last year. For example I did a trip to southern Oregon and Northern California and even in June a lot of the parks there were snowed in and when I showed in I mean. Twenty feet of snow snowed in right so this is in the summer. And they're still so much snow. Because it's an altitude. And you're you're not gonNA really see that in Arizona Star in in the south so if you're looking for a trip in the winter or something it's it's a great place to go and there's a great diversity. These aren't just natural sites although it certainly has those there's a great deal of history. That goes back told him. The ancient people who lived in this area before Europeans showed up as well as a westward expansion in a host of other things so there really is a wide diversity. I also going to see some landscapes that you're really not going to see anywhere else or other desserts in the United States but The SONORAN desert that. You're going to see here is really unique and have some things that you're just not gonNA find saying California Nevada or even Utah. The one exception I can think of to. You're not going to run into whether here would be the North Rim of the Grand Canyon Which closes in October want to say because it had closed before. We did a trip in October of last year. It hadn't snowed in yet but all services were closed on the largest closed in all facilities are closed at that point and then it will snow in. And they'll stop plowing the roads as soon as the snows happen. Yeah so I was last there. In January of twenty twenty those primarily in the Tucson area but then I made a trip up north around flagstaff and a lot of people don't realize that there's snow up in flagstaff primarily because of the elevation than anything. And so yeah. There was definitely snow on the ground when I visited some of the sites but I live in Minnesota so this was like your price my first winter. It was not a lot of snow. Wasn't that coal right. The roads are open. You can you can actually go and see stuff well and I remember being at the Grand Canyon in April when there was snow at the Rim and it was eighty degrees at the bottom so it depends a lot where you are absolutely. So what kind of itinerary do you recommend? It really depends on where you're going to be. I think most people are probably going to be flying into Tucson or Phoenix right and the third place might be flagstaff. One smaller town. But it's in the north and There's kind of pockets of parks around those. And the first one I would bring up is a park while National Monument and it's extremely unique among all the sites in the United States that's Hokum National Monument anemic because you cannot visit and if you could visit. There is nothing to see well then. It's unique in an unusual way. I have needs a little bit of explanation so just south of Phoenix is the reservation. There was an archaeological dig. Their WANNA say took place in the seventies sixties and seventies called snake down and what they ended up doing was once. The excavation was over the reburied it. So you got declared a national monument and it's on the reservation and they don't let you go and visit the site or snake town is but if they did there is literally nothing to see because it's buried and for National Park collectors. It poses a problem because for whatever reason it's still on the books huff thirds no visitor center. There's no there's nothing but technically make them really getting technical here if you look at the outline of what constitutes the National Monument isn't interstate that runs through it so should actually go to the Beltway Beneath Phoenix. YOU'RE ON THAT ROAD. You will technically drive through this area and you'll see buffing. There's nothing there so it's kind of an oddity on. I don't know why it's still on the books or why it's there. But supposedly there was a cultural center for the tribe and you go there and they had a display about snake Tama. They closed it. And they're going to be reopening again and you could actually get a stamp there and that would be the closest thing to visit other than that I mean. I think we could talk about so there of the twenty two sites. There are three national parks proper. The first is obviously the Grand Canyon. I don't know how much we need to talk about that. I'm sure done shows on the Grand Canyon. We have done a show on the Grand Canyon in the first year of Amateur Traveler. And then we did another show later on about Rafting the Grand Canyon with the George Wendt the now late founder of ores rafting But that's been a little while ago so it's worth a mention. Yeah I mean everyone's familiar with it. Is You mentioned you can access it from the North or the South? It's a very common trip for people to make from Las Vegas. Yeah although people go to the South Rim from Las Vegas. That's long drive right. I mean and it should be noted. The Grand Canyon says enormous chunk taken out of the state of Arizona and their bridges to get around. It writes the you have to drive around at our fly over it. The southern rim is lower elevation and by far the more popular of the two sides. You can visit. It gets ninety percent of the tourism. Am I read about that? Would sound about right if you go further up river you get into the Glen Canyon Recreation area. And that's where you'll see that's like horseshoe bend is a famous site of most people may have seen the photo also National Park Service site on the Colorado River but not part of the Canyon and if you go downstream there are also some Indian reservations. One of which which famously built the Skywalk horseshoe-shaped. Yeah so it it. It's one of the most popular parks in the United States. It should have been put on the list of the seven. Natural Wonders of the world said the underground river in the Philippines. Made it not that. We're bitter fool. No in the way they walked in it was kind of ridiculous but yeah it's the one thing that if you're an American or even if you're not American coming to visit the United States I think you should I mean it's literally alongside maybe yellowstone in Yosemite those are considered the three crown jewel national parks in the US system brand. It really is an incredible
The Grand Canyon
"Have you ever heard of the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is the Whitest Canyon in the world and located in Arizona which also happens to be my home state. It's also considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The Grand Canyon is two hundred seventy seven miles long up to eighteen miles wide in over six thousand feet deep in places. It's very colorful a combination of reds browns whites and many other colors because each of the different layers or strata were formed at different times during the Earth's history. The Earth is very very old so the Grand Canyon is made up of different rocks from its two billion year old history early on the Grand Canyon was actually a mountain which overtime sunk down until it was flat. Then is the earth shifted. It became a canyon and over a very long period was even underwater. Eventually a river started flowing through the Canyon which is now known as the Colorado River. The water in the river was full of rocks. So over. Millions of years the river acted like sandpaper. Shaving down the canyon this is called erosion today. When you look at the Grand Canyon you can see the different layers in it similar to a layered cake. Some of the layers are white. Limestone other layers are filled with shells from was underwater and the upper layers are dark and reformed by a volcano after the Grand Canyon was formed into what it looks like today around three thousand years ago native people who now call the ancestral publians live near the Grand Canyon. They built homes out of stone and farmed corn squash and beans. They made carvings and paintings on Canyon walls which is one way we know they live there. Another group who lived there were called the co Nina for the ancestors of the modern Yuma Havasu Pie and who a lot by people who still live around the Grand Canyon. The native people call the Grand Canyon. Cab which means mountain on its side. The ancient people believed the Grand Canyon was a holy place and often visited for miles around to experience. It's wonder after Europeans discovered the new World Francisco Vasquez Coronado and a group of Spanish explorers were in the area. Searching for the fabled seven cities of Cipolla in fifteen forty Coronado ordered captain Garcia Lopez de Cardenas and. His soldiers to explore the area they and their Hopi native guides where the first European to see the wonders of the Grand Canyon. They were amazed at its size and fastness. Two hundred years passed until another European visited the canyon in seventeen seventy six to Spanish priests Francisco Dominguez and Sylvester de Escalate into explored southern Utah and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the eighteen fifties. They were followed. By Jacob Hamlin a Mormon explorer sent by Brigham Young to find a way to cross the river. They made friends with the WHO a lot by tribe and found the crossing discovered by the Spanish priests which later became Lee's ferry. A theory is a place where a flat boat helps wagons and people cross the river then in eighteen sixty nine major John. Wesley Powell led the first expedition down into the Canyon. He had set out to explore the Colorado River and the Canyon. They wrote down the river on a boat and survived the dangerous rapids and finally ended up in what is now known as MOAB UTAH. John Wesley Powell later became famous for the founding of the Boy Scouts of America. In one thousand nine hundred three. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Grand Canyon and marveled at its beauty. Teddy Roosevelt was known for his love of nature and spent much of his time outdoors in the Grand Canyon. He did everything he could to help. Preserve its natural. Wonder he worked to make it a national monument and believe places like the Grand Canyon should be preserved so people all over the world can enjoy it. All Roosevelt was president. He formed the National Parks Association to help. Save places like the Grand Canyon today. The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous places to visit in the world with about five million visitors every year. Who come from all over to see and explore it. Most people just come to look out over the vast canyon. I've been there a few times with my family. It's about a four hour. Drive from US where we live near Phoenix Arizona. The last time I went we brought our foreign kids who also looked out over it in awe. We had to hold them close to us because the canyon is a very steep drop below which made us very nervous. When I was in high school our family and a group of other families hiked down into the part of the canyon known as Havasu Pie. We drove there early in the morning and had all of our camping gear and food loaded onto the back of mules. Then we hiked about four hours down into the Canyon at the bottom of the trail. The huge picturesque Havasu falls. You can swim at the falls. Jump off cliffs and hike further into see and swim in the waterfalls. Our trip was very fun but took a turn for the worse when one of the days I slept on Iraq and twisted my ankle pretty bad the next day we were supposed to hike out so my close friend. I got up early and started hiking. I live most of the way. Even up the steep switch-backs. It was a rough hike out but the waterfalls and swimming holes made it worth it anyway along with hiking people take helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon love to raft the Wild Colorado River. They also take horseback tours down into the Canyon. And it's very popular. Hike it from Rim Durham. By sisters in their friends. Do this recently. Another main attraction is the Grand Canyon. Skywalk which lets you walk on a glass bottom path out over the canyon so you can look at the drop far

Closing Of Coal Power Plants Means Debates On What To Do With The Water They Used
"Coal fired power. Plants are being closed across the country. In the arid West. Those plants use a lot of the region scarce water supplies now with closure dates approaching communities or having sometimes contentious debates about how this newly freed up. Water should be used from K. Unc in Colorado Luke Runyan reports it snowing in downtown Craig Colorado when Jennifer Holloway walks into the local bookstore. She runs the city's Chamber of Commerce and says the start of twenty twenty has been full of mixed emotions. It's been hard to face the fact that okay we are needed in January Craig's dominant employer the company operating the nearby. Coal Plant and mine confirmed the rumors. It will shut down by twenty thirty because we've been providing electricity for millions of other people and that is a source of pride at first people worried about the loss of jobs at the plant. Now they wonder. What's going to happen to the sizable amount of water? It uses its ten times more than all of Craig's nearly nine thousand residents us. There is some discussion on this in the community and people have different views but my personal view is that that water needs to be safeguarded for long term environmental usage because Holloway says a healthy environment means a healthy local economy across the West than thirty five. Coal plants have either closed recently or are slated for closure in the next fifteen years when you look at a typical coal facility. It uses an enormous volume of water. Dwayne highly CEO of tristate generation and transmission which operates Craig's plant coal plant. Closures will free up more than two million acre feet of water in Western states about as much as the Phoenix Metro area uses in a year. And the fact that will be liberated and available for other reuse is going to be significant significant because in this part of the country. It's unheard of for large amounts of water to suddenly become available. Highly says tristate is already receiving calls from buyers interested in Craig's water drawn from the Yampa river part of the drought plagued Colorado River basin. This Chris big opportunity to make the decisions. More wisely Cook Chechen. John researched coal plants in their water rights in a Grad School project for the Nature Conservancy. It's one of a few environmental groups. Interested in buying water from plants slated for closure in Wyoming New Mexico and Arizona and keeping it in rivers. It all comes down to who can negotiate with these plans owners than look who can make it better claim or make a better offer but with no large scale regulated market for water rights in the Colorado River Basin. It's hard to say exactly how much money it's worth. People like. Megan Veenstra would like to see water from the Craig plant stay. Local place painted. She and her husband run good vibes river gear. Rafts lifejackets all kinds of stuff just to get you out on the water. And she says Craig is starting to make a transition that other communities in the West over the last century have gone through from mining to recreation based economies. It's been a boom and bust town for a long time as time to just kind of get away from that and we just a steady growing town plenty of other growing. Western cities have the means to pay top dollar for the Craig Plants Water but moving it from one place to another is in some cases physically or legally impossible and you can count on locals to put up a fight to hold onto it for NPR news.

Mark Randolph talks about turning a No into a Yes
"Everybody Buddy welcome to episode three twenty five of the ask. Garry show and I'm very excited about this episode. Let's go right into it. I know a lot of people watching livestream across all the platforms but it's GonNa be Lincoln today. As we continue testing out Lincoln live linked in. Please put in your phone numbers. If you have a question for for my distinguished guest here today Markham and allow you to introduce yourself in a second. new book is out. Obviously I'm really excited about talking about Netflix and his career but I want to get into a bunch of questions because even the first three or four minutes of just hanging with him before we went live. I think the energy is going to be really good which which is exciting to me from a content standpoint so mark. Why don't you introduce yourself and tell everybody a little bit about your origin. Story sounds good. Gary so Marc Randolph co-founder co-founder for CEO net flicks and now soon to be author. which is kind of adding something totally new to my mix for you origin story well? I'm I'm sixty one so I'm still working out with. My origin story is what were you born. I was born just over there in Chappaqua up so I'm a New York boy. He's so for the first half of my life and so. What kind of kid were you so? I was a kid who anytime I wanted to do something. My parents said go for it. That's I I come home and go dad. I'm going to caving in rather than being like what are you. What are you nuts. I get the fantastic. That sounds really cool. That's really neat. It was really neat. Where where were you in the only child you have siblings. I'm the oldest of three okay so right off the bat. Even you know it's funny you hear that a lot more from third child's else perspective so even as the oldest. Your parents had gave you some room. I think for third child. It's like what's what's your name. I know knows it was is really great. It all other thing I do reflect back on. What was it about how I grew up that maybe gave me? Some of the things I have and one is that it was also a family. We're no is always something to get around. It was like not something that you took no and walked and left from the standpoint of if your parents said no oh they appreciated you trying to figure it out a little bit 'cause my mom was like that a little bit yeah and also them kind of recognizing that whenever barrier came up it wasn't like we give up and walk away okay it. It was always being said there's amazing. Go right into this a little bit later this. I was graduating from college okay and I wanted to get a job as a advertising EXAC back. Okay I was really into yet anyway. I applied for this job at. NWEA air no longer here but firm Yup and it was one of those jobs which only usually usually goes to MBA's yup is an undergraduate so as long shot thing and those like I don't know a thousand people applying and I got the first round and then the second round they bring it in York and and I got the second round in the third round they bring you back and I got down to the point where there's only four people applying for this job and it was like Holy Shit and I went in in an interview with everybody whole day and didn't get it and went slinging backup to upstate New York college and going well screw it. I'm I'm not going to up so I wrote these long emails to our letters letters letters to everybody and basically was saying like all right. I'll try again. What what could I do better. What should I learn. What do you want to see and then the guy goes. Come on down and brings me up and offered me the job and the crazy thing is that no one was given the job none of the four of us interesting that this was a job which was about turning a no into Oh yes and so they said no to everybody and waited to see who would not take no for an answer really absolutely. That's amazing that a crazy crazy thing thing. I love it so that really is probably the best articulation of how I grew up interesting so you took that job kind of actually notice how I kind of the way you tell us what I'm like. He didn't take the fucking job I did and I took it even crazier job. which was there was the guy? I've ever told history before. There was a guy in Memphis. Tennessee owned a big cotton company sold it in the family of two hundred years made a gazillion dollars and was basically driving around throwing money out the window basically feels like today you're go he'd he bought these properties and I'm kind of an outdoorsy guy. They have always been into like your story was caves. Yes absolutely WHOA. This guy had bought a ski shop. He'd bought a place out veil and he was looking for someone to tie them altogether and he goes. You'RE GONNA. You're going to run this kind of this big CO marketing business. Did you know that family friends that someone like that. That would give you that at bat at that. Young of an age. There was some other variable relationships. You're you're drag me down. These complicated stories but you're pro so there's an organization that I apologize business where I wanNA bring value to the audience mark. Here's why the reason I'm probing is because I have a very good sense of my audience and ironically. I'm pretty good at this other than the fact. I love to interrupt all the time. I'm because I'm just because I already know what the answers are and because I'm usually on a time crunch so they actually the audience gets mad at me. 'cause I interrupt everyone on the flip side. I've an incredible sense about what stories could bring value. I promise you mark let me tell you one thing about this audience. This is not the today show like what's amazing about. This audience is thirty. Four people bull arbitrary number just heard that story and literally in the next twenty four hours are going to reply to a no and one was gonna get yes and you and I literally right now. Just change the course of somebody's life and that's what gets me high. It's it's unbelievable and by the way don't worry about the interrupting. I mean if you just said like pass the roles and the thought I was talk about the story cool. How'd you get them. So when I was fourteen they packed my parents pack up to Wyoming to do this. backpacking trip in the mountains uh-huh and it turns holidays again which one of your parents was super outdoorsy. If either my dad my dad grew up in Austria so he kind of just if you've gone so and then I loved this program and it was a personal teaches leadership using a wilderness as a setting and I was a student there for three or four summers and then I ended up teaching there as a leader and then eventually got to the point is leading leading the whole courses so a lot of responsibility young that was my college summer job and so this Julian Jay Hohenberger the third the guy with the Cotton Company at one of the things he did when he was throwing the money the window was. I'm GonNa take a course he. He went out to Wyoming. He did this course you taught it. I did not he was so in Namur d- by the course and instructors that when he heard from my through through someone else that I was of course leader there he goes. I want that guy. You know what's so funny. I to this day still have that in me. You show me a kid a guy or a gal who flips sneakers cells blow. POPS does cards like I believe in that Shit Genetic Markers for entrepreneurship I do not it's candy the arbitrage everyone almost everyone. I meet like you says the same thing. It's going in and buying it for ten cents in the next day you go to school for a buck and if you show me people not that it's why. I love people that sell weed who sought like if you tell me that you sold we'd from a bad neighborhood obviously a normally but not always and and you sold nickel bags. I already am interested in you because it means literally arbitrage dime bags. Somebody who's never smoked weed telling the story Free College. I always thought my friend Bob use would have been a good entrepreneur because he had the discipline and the grind to go down to the nickel bag bag level that takes a real fucking commitment and so- arbitrage anyway absolutely right. It's it's the vision to go knocking. It's seeing an opportunity. It's seeing a pressure differential hundred and that happens for kids who are six when it's candy. It happens for people in their twenty six or forty six when they see oh man taxis suck. I'M GONNA do hundred thousand percent. It's that's why it's a marker for that is someone who sees things really matched of course with all these other things. Of course you've seen which is what happened your kid out of school. You're twenty two and you're now running this conglomerate of different businesses and then even worse. I did this job percents and this company better the company that one of the properties was in in the ghost town resort in outside of Vale and the manager did your left and they go and I go I want that job and so they moved me out and now you're this twenty-three-year-old knows nothing and he's running this place which a sixty employees and as he's huge cash flow issues and a restaurant bar and and I'm going down. I'm doing the marketing and the advertising and it was like cashflow one. Oh one it was management one. Oh one it was thrown into this super deep pool and going to swim. You don't know how you're sitting. You're quiet because I'm like. Oh my God we grew up the same way. I'm the byproduct of the same thing in a liquor store. Yeah it was a small base of four five and six employees and then I grew it but by the time I was twenty five years old. I had managed people. I'd paid all my bills with my cat own cash flow. You know credit no credit line. I forget about fucking raising capital. No credit line the first business I built from three to sixty million dollars hours year in fucking eight years had no credit. That's awesome because then you don't see credit as a crutch. You see it's a thing that you is what you know now how to use that the US it's awesome and even if you're trained in it when I raised money for empathy. I didn't spend it as well when when that's exactly right it is something that could save you overspend your business and that is a very very strict teacher so I mean did that cool. Thanks yeah some stuff did that then. It got probably the the job which influenced me the most is. I got this weird job. Quick quick question. I struggle with Sir Twenty three and you're in in this resort town right. Yes resort town SORTA. It's halfway between Vail and steamboat which means the middle of nowhere but it's close to both and you're twenty three twenty three and you've got this kind of cool big job. How did you balance your personal life and your professional life at that point in your life because I've actually I'm not going to lead lead the question. What did you do. How how much did you date. How much fun were you having how much fun where you having a great thing it. Was it was a really good lesson. I had a lot of fun and So don't get me wrong. Because everyone was working. There was twenty three going go ahead and so and and it was the Alpha of the twenty three and that was leverage. That was the bad part though was that these guys it was on the banks of the Colorado River so they'd all go. Hey we're all going rafting going. I've gotTa do you know inventory. I gotta how to pay these responsibilities and it kind of really was painful. So I got a lot of funds. I'm not bemoaning it but there was this realization that there's a different level level of responsibility that I had but I did meet my wife there and so amazing did come out of come out of that go ahead all right so the come come back east and got this how old must've been only twenty four quick twenty-five two years in Colorado two and a half years okay keep going so come back and get this crazy job basically as gopher to the CEO of Music Publishing Company. I think my title was like a I chief of staff or something looking at all. These guys is like literally my so far. I just want everybody who's listening to you right now. I'm sorry mark I'm taking episode over listening. I just I don't know if you've been listening but I think I could see some of you in the room putting the pieces together my core so my advice is to do and like manage and like like actually make and sell it and then or and or if you want to be somebody go work as an Admin a gopher chief of staff for somebody. That's extremely at a very high level each shit. It is basically what I'm saying. Basically is what I'm saying and I'm just GonNa make it simple here so far. What I've heard from mark is the first two things didn't his career was jumped in full throttle. Sacrifice is what he was saying couldn't have as much fun dealt with all that was practical and then and then have the humility. Let's say one more time for all the people out there that love being a CEO had the humility to go from being the lead dog of something like that in that ecosystem going and being a gopher a chief of staff of whatever about the here and I just want to remind all of you this all lead for him to be the CO founder and CEO of Netflix so it's such a I'm so glad you called a little time out on that one because that that is the the piece of advice I give to every single person who goes.

"Numbers that even though agriculture is so big in California as a percentage of the state's overall you know, two and a half trillion dollar. Konami agriculture just generates. Couple of couple of percent of that. So you know, but but it consumes three times as much water as anybody else. So this is where we get into the weeds tad. Yeah. Try I'll try to simplify it. So when you look at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, had a small river, the L, A river, they attacked into it, by the, by the late eighteen hundreds, so they went out and stole themselves. You know, three different rivers, I it was the river from the Owens valley dried out that valley, two hundred miles away. Then they went to the Colorado river, and then they went to the Sacramento river way up in the so L A the farmer here is going to tell you, what does L A have a right to, to preach to us anything. They're, they're, they're growing suburbia across the desert with borrowed water in the valley. We have these five rivers here, and those are the rivers that chiefly are being tapped into for agriculture so. So there's a proprietary sense, okay? Well, we're, we're growing food. We're growing these crops, and we're using our own rivers. Even if we had to borrow another valley river, the Sacramento to help us out so it's just not so simple. And then the folks up north, you know, up up mount Shasta down to, to, to Sacramento. They feel put upon because it's their, their rivers their system that is being borrowed by all the rest of the state. So it's, it's a weird kind of, you know, logic. Yeah. Well, so everyone's feeling put upon because California's at forty million people built are on a water infrastructure as you're talking about which I mean, as he said, the drought revealed that it's a finite resource, and the and California's future is to face more such, you know, such challenges. So it makes sense that people are. Sort of looking at each other as will you're the problem. No, you're the pump. But you're saying the whole system is the problem. The, the system was magnificent, but it was built when we had eleven million people here, we've got forty million hours. You say so, so the system is cracking under these demands, and, and something has to give in the problem in California. You know, the impression that it'd be house of California is a very progressive state at tackles these environmental issues before any other states, and that tackling them becomes a model for, for other states. But it took us a one hundred sixty five years to regulate the taking of groundwater that great aquifers beneath us. And so we were taking it so much of the land was sinking not inches, but feet, you know, thirty forty feet sinking in the land was sinking and the then the roads and the canals were sinking along with it. So, so there's this kind of madness to the extraction, and an. And that's what we're now confronting in California. As progressive, as it is doesn't want to start off with a number that the number being how big can we get right? Can we be fifty million sixty million? If so, where's the water going to come from in? We had these this great volatility of climate, we are our whole history is one of swinging from drought to flood. And yet, we forget about drought as soon as we're in flood, and we forget about flood as soon as we're in drought, but, but that is now teaming up with climate change. And so we're going to get these habits that, that we've never had before. I mean, doesn't it just it just makes you more fundamental truth about human nature that is soon as we're back in the good times. We forget how bad the bad times where I mean that drought. They California only just barely came out of was a decade long. I was just out there in the bay area last month, and everything was green, and blooming, and people seemed that they, you know, they were not. Criticizing them, but they were someone were behaving as, if they just hadn't lived through ten straight years of virtual water emergency. No, the there's this kind of collective amnesia, that is remarkable to see. It really is. And we've grown in places that we shouldn't have grown. I, I was up in paradise the, the, the city, right? The city on a built.

"You're listening to weekend edition from NPR news. About ten years ago. There was another record breaking drought in the western United States and the seven states that get water from the Colorado river came up with a plan on how they deal with water shortages, many hoped wet weather would return, but it hasn't the dry conditions of actually gotten worse and officials are working to avoid a crisis on the Colorado. River from member station K UNC, Luke Runyan reports. Jennifer pit is looking out onto lake Powell in northern Arizona. An overlook full of tourists peering down on the country's second largest reservoir and the concrete dam holding it up you can tell that there's a river here underneath us reservoir because it has somewhat of a linear shape pit works on Colorado river policy for the national Audubon society this past year was one of the driest on record and this spring the reservoir only received about a third of the amount of water. It does in an average year demands for the river's water continued to outstrip the supply. Why meaning both Powell and its sister reservoir lake Mead continued to drop pit says without changes to how they're managed. They could plummet to levels where no water can be released. And if that happened that would be a catastrophe for this region's economy for all of the people who depend on the Colorado river, and for all of the wildlife that depends on it as well. More is being taken out then comes into it like your Bank account. If you do that over a sustained period, you will run a deficit, that's James Ekelund. He's the Colorado Representative on an interstate commission that oversees the river if you're talking about water for forty million people and economies that are massive fifth largest economy in the world that the Colorado river basin represents then that's significant Acklins banking analogy is appropriate because the creation of a water account in lake Powell is one piece of so-called drought. Contingency plans in the works. Now, the plans basic premise is simple get states to voluntarily cut their water. Use now to avoid even more severe cutbacks in the future. Eric Kyun is the former manager of the Colorado river district. There's clearly enough evidence that if we were to have another two thousand to two thousand four kind of multi year drought. The system is in very serious trouble. Arizona has had the hardest time coming to an agreement. Figuring out the details of weather cities or farmers. Get their water allocations cut by how much and win. But states in the river's upper basin by Colorado have had issues to for example, this thing called demand management. It's the difficult one. It's somebody's going to have to use less. And if reductions aren't doled out fairly Kyun says there's a fear they could injure urban and rural economies throughout the south west at the thing we have to remember is the basin is over eighty percent agriculture. Hobie Pellegrino is with the Las Vegas metro areas. Water utility, she says current conservation programs like her agencies aggressive buy-back of residential lawns won't be enough to avoid a crisis.

"All those are are decided by somebody who's never elected anywhere and sixty percent of your money. There's no discretion with the people of the state of New York. So you had no influence on it. So how do you influence a bureaucracy in Washington? It's in a big stone billion the cost one hundred million dollars and their whole goal is to grow their bureaucracy. Not to hold the country accountable and not to limit the power of the federal government. So if I'm arguing against the convention states, probably one of the things, I would say is okay. You got you could just gave me two great examples dome. One at a time amend the constitution with the for the the commerce clause issue. You just mentioned do at one amendment at a time. Why not well, they can congress can send them one at amendment at a time if we pass twenty so the point is is you lack the concept of what a and amendments convention is because everything used to be decided in our country by this type of meeting. All right. The Colorado river commission had the Colorado river commission, which was not all that long ago. One hundred less than one hundred years ago states got together and decided how they were going to handle the water rights off the Colorado river, right? Yeah. But had they said something to the states to affirm that was outside of what their charge was it never would have been taken up. Right. So the point is is everybody that has fear of what we're doing. It's because it's fear. It's not about fixing the problem. It's because the unknown because we've never done it that way. Yes. And never sent anybody before we'd never done the genome project before. So should we be afraid? No, what we should be is what's important for the future of our country and our kids. Yes. And but fear fear PD drives people to the polls. So what are the before?

"Management today hello emily hi thanks for having me now let let's just take a moment here to reconsider the colorado river which is a which carved the grand canyon and as i understand it now every drop of that river is used in our modern world and you emily you can probably tell us who's using it right so the basin is it covers parts of seven states in the united states in the southwest and it also covers part of mexico so nearly forty million people in that area depend on this river for their water and it's also used ear gate nearly five point five million acres of farmland and you're right we do use every drop of it the river hasn't actually method oceans since the late nineteen nineties except for one year in twenty fourteen and that was when fficials released a pulse of water on specifically for the purpose of reconnecting there with the ocean but except in special circumstances like that we we use up the whole river these days california governor jerry brown talks a lot about the urgent need to save water in his state governor brown is a as you as everybody knows is a conservationist and he takes very strong view of what his state to be doing here he is talking to pbs news hour in twenty fifteen gene we're talking about people taking out their lawns using all these other different water saving technologies and then accelerating things like diesel in his asian and almost every way conceivable californians have to get used to a very different world and we'll have to live just a little bit differently or maybe a lot more differently since they they they california's getting drier and drier isn't that right emily that's right so the entire southwest is getting drier getting hotter because of climate change and that's making it drier and what the what the what the experts are starting to say what i'm hearing is that you know it might not even be useful to use only the word drought anymore because that implies a temporary period of hardship that we just need to tighten our belts and get through it and then we can go back to the way things have been but actually what we're seeing is they're calling it a rid of occasion the the climate of the region is just getting drier and we're going to have to get used to that and that's going to take some awareness which we're starting to see and then also some changes in behavior now john rose john wesley powell's vision for the development of the west for what did he did he he used the term in wasn't the arid west but it was something like that he had a vision for how it ought to be developed in watersheds what what did his west look like what was his vision was any you know here's this guy who had fought during the civil war and fought and bled to keep the union together what he was a first and foremost was a real patriotic national american and he was really concerned i think emily was matching this about where we are what might happen where we are today which is that the colorado river is the most litigated river in the world and he felt that water should be kept within its local confines and that the local people on the ground should be the people making the decisions about how the water is used in who's using it he was very much a proponent of kind of jeffersonian idea the agrarian the small former in that's where really good decisions lay in even though he was this federal bureaucrat which most people a lot of people would know that he as he was a real proponent of of the small former and he was really concerned so he that's where he started moving the conversation way way ahead of his time so things like bio regionalism localism all of this these kinds of things that he brought up now are in the discussion that he had even the vegas notion that one of the biggest cities in the united states would be in southern california no and you know he would have been horrified to about the size of the mega dams and what those had done i mean he was very much again person of his time who believe that small dams and things but i don't think he could have just imagined the size.

"They got water in there in a desert but they're getting it from i believe the colorado river and then when the colorado river has one of those years where there's not as much snowfall and is not as much melt then these people freak out and go on my gosh las vegas is running out of water you're in a desert dude you're having the pipe it across a desert to get to you of course you're going to have problems with water and then of course las vegas continues to expand and that creates a strain on the water system but that's not because they're running out of water is because they got too many people does that make sense to folks so when people talk about a water crisis it is usually one of two things it is we got the same amount of water but we got too many people now sucking out of the same straw which is basically what is going on in las vegas and california many places to or you've got a self made problem like i was talking about with charlotte where they get everybody conserve and then they don't buy enough water and there's not enough water money coming to the water company and then all of a sudden they've either got to raise the rates so they got to cut back on their services and then they tell everybody it's a crisis and they created when if this is why when it comes to environmental stuff i'll just tell you my m o on this and you can take it or leave it for what it's worth my deal is when you artificially monkey with the free market it's going to be trouble so just do what comes naturally to you if you feel like taking a trip somewhere take a trip you don't have to you don't have to double up on your trips to the grocery store and the pharmacy and then going out to eat if you want to do all three of those separately because it's convenient for you then do that in other words do what you normally would do don't listen to these folks who are trying to tell you that you're destroying the planet and that you've got to.

"In the desert about twenty five miles outside of las vegas you'll find the hoover dam and behind that giant concrete dam is lake mead huge reservoir filled up by the colorado river lake mead supplies about twenty million people downstream in nevada and arizona and southern california in addition to thousands of farms but water levels in the lake have been dangerously low for years and it's forcing those states to rethink controversial water agreements as supplies could be even scarcer than anyone thought daniel rothberg is a reporter at the nevada independent and he's been following the story so the west has been locked in an eighteen year drought lake mead when it's full is usually about twelve hundred feet above sea level right now at about ten eighty five if it drops about ten feet more it'll be at thirty five percent of its capacity and that will trigger shortages across the west two things are happening one there's more legal rights to colorado river water allocated to south western states than there is actual water so that is starting to catch up to the states as we go into the eighteenth year of drought the second thing that's going on is climate change is reducing the changing the snowpack patterns in the rockies which provide the water for lake mead so for many many years decades as you said the states downstream had agreements about how to divide up all that colorado river water for cities and of course for farms what's the state of those agreements and in what's in the future here.

"The importation of water from the colorado river where was the water coming from before before the canal was built the desert was very fortunate in having a large underground aquifer so the desert is on inhabitable for people people can live in the desert and so the cortana valley is on a jain desert but it's a very special desert because it sits on an aquifer no an aquifer is a permeable rock that can absorb water and so even though with the desert they would you know when people first settled there they would dig into the ground and they would have wells that would spring water what was happening in 1918 is the people who were here realized that there are two should wells didn't slow as quickly as they once had so they needed to find additional sources so even though they have the aquifer they didn't want to treat it like a mineral they didn't want to say all we're gonna mind this vina gold until it's done with and then move on so basically the aquifer is not sustainable unless it's being replenished at the same rate as it's being used and is being used beyond its capacity as more and more people start to farm in the area but in order to keep farming production up the farmers wanted to participate in what became known as the colorado a river compact wait what what is the colorado river compact i'm glad you asked the colorado river compact was signed in nineteen twenty two it was a government deal that split the use of the colorado river between seven states including nevada arizona and of course california and while the deal is being made the farmers of coachella were nervous that they wouldn't get enough access to the river's water so to advocate for themselves they founded the coachella valley water district that was back in the 20s the next big milestone in the valley happened in the '60s the coachella valley for many years agriculture was king came to the economy will starting in the mid to late '60s homes in the resorts and there are golf courses and way more people started moving into the area there are quite a few golf courses here in the coachella valley one of the more high profile players of golf in those early years was former president dwight eisenhower president obama has come here to play golf golf plays a very important part of the.
