Experts Say Colorado River Deal Fails to Solve Long-Term Problems

Experts Say Colorado River Deal , Fails to Solve Long-Term Problems. Experts have warned that a hard-fought agreement between California, Arizona and Nevada to cut the use of the Colorado River won't solve the long-term water crisis. 'The Guardian' reports that experts say the new deal, announced on May 22, is only a temporary solution to a problem that threatens life in the American west. The agreement will see the three states cut water consumption from the dwindling river by 13% over the next three years if adopted. The deal is reportedly backed by $1.2 billion in federal funds and encourages voluntary reductions made in exchange for government grant money. 'The Guardian' reports that the deal comes after months of missed deadlines and stagnant negotiations. . However, experts warn that the measure is not enough to prevent the existential threat posed by the Colorado River. . Following years of over-allocation to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding U.S. west, the region is now facing unprecendented global warming. . 'The Guardian' reports that the American west is facing a "megadrought' that is the worst the region has experienced in 1,200 years.
