Wow, we've been hearing bits & pieces of news about this,
but your pictures really put it into perspective!
We flew over in Sept & could tell even from the air
how much volume it had lost back then already!
Just caught a little part of something on TV last night
as I was walking onto the room.
They said they were going to blow up some granite
rock formations to make the channel deeper.
The first thing that came to mind was....
How much of the New Madrid fault line underlies the river?
And how close to where they are planning this?
Could it set off an earthquake?
I'm with Cherryontop! I have wondered about the millions
of gallons of water they use for fracking being lost forever!
When they are done using it, what they can reclaim is contaminated.
So they inject it deep underground into disposal wells, to get rid of it...forever???
So all of it is taken from the water cycle, never able to return.
No wonder why it's been said that one day water would be
the new commodity, & traded like gold!
T. Boone Pickens has been buying up land in Texas over the largest aquifer in the U.S!
Follow the money!
Every place upriver affects the Mississippi.
The northeast hardly had any snowfall last year.
None so far this year.
Millions of gallons of water taken for fracking in how many states?!
Something else crossed my mind.
Have any small, new fault lines started to open up under the river?
Some water could be leaching down through them too!!!
