That’s depressing! Lake Mead water levels over the years (video and graphs)

What’s going to happen when the water runs out? That’s when the water wars start!

Another way to understand understand where we are with Lake Mead is looking at those graphs of water level and, more importantly, storage over the years…

The observant reader will notice a pattern of rapidly varying water height in the Lake Mead chart above from 1935 until the mid-1960s, after which the water level became more consistent in the short term. My theory is this smoothing was caused by the fact that Lake Powell, upstream from Lake Mead, began to fill in 1966, taking 17 years to fill completely (that would take us to 1983).

It is reasonable to assume the people overseeing this filling operation took more water for Lake Powell at times of rapid flow, thus smoothing out the flow peaks and troughs that were seen in Lake Mead beforehand. Since that time I would guess that Lake Powell now absorbs the annual peaks and troughs once seen in the Lake Mead data, and acts as a buffer for Lake Mead.

Lake Mead water storage

Note that storage is getting really low, because storage is not linear with water level. The amount of water in a foot of level is higher when the level is higher, because the area of the lake is much larger. When the lake is low, it is much smaller. It’s more like a funnel than a bathtub.

Prepare Now! You will never go without electricity with this portable power station!

Here are the corresponding water height and water storage for Lake Powell:

Same here, wtaer height and water storage are diminishing dramatically…

Totally depressing! Brace yourself for the US water wars… Because they will really take place!

  1. Out of words for these sad articles:
    “Children left behind, go missing in 20 cases over 5 months at Yokohama, Kawasaki facilities”
    The article about the “magic cyborg potion” and the M.O.T.B. in Japan.
    “Japan preschoolers taught how to use horn after girl left alone on bus died”
    “Japanese language school decertified over abuse of Vietnamese student”
    “TOKYO (Kyodo) — Japan’s immigration agency stripped a Japanese language school of its certification Wednesday after it found a staff member physically restrained a Vietnamese student last October.

    The staff member at the Nishinihon International Education Institute in the southwestern city of Fukuoka was found to have restrained the student for several hours using a chain and padlock wrapped around his belt, according to the Immigration Services Agency of Japan.”

  2. To all the regulars here….as regards info on reservoir water levels, I highly recommend a youtube channel called Time Bomb.

  3. Jesus is coming back and anywhere in the world during the tribulation will be a nasty place. Either your his or your not. One way to make sure is by asking him into your life and make him Lord and repent of your sin. We’re all sinners and Jesus died so you could escape this wasteland called earth. His word is true and God is good. That is all.

  4. They want us in Arabia/Los Angeles style LINE Cities that have tiny, depressing capsule rooms for each beast-marked resident.

    U.N. is attempting to end appropriate education for severely disabled children – and possibly ban homeschooling – in “free capitalist utopia” Japan:

    “UN panel urges Japan to end segregated education of disabled kids”

    “The U.N. Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities expressed concerns over how an increasing number of disabled children cannot attend regular schools and called on the Japanese government to adopt a national action plan on quality inclusive education.”

    They can’t attend such schools because their disabilities – especially AUTISM – are getting worse and worse with each generation, not solely in America. This is global. The U.N. wants to turn Japan into the next U.K./England which is facing a massive economic and social fallout from endless construction of special needs schools and always running out of places.

  5. I think they are draining them. But because the New Madrid is due, and they are worried about dam failure from earthquakes. Same with those in California.

  6. Last two days up in the mountains we had good rain. Are the satanic elitists creating a water shortage by draining off water? Something is hinkey. Water levels have been a news crisis fest since 2001 for both lakes. Makes one wonder if they are draining water to help promote the BS global warming agenda. Electroverse data shows we are on a cooling trend. Winters will be colder too. More snow pack. Last few seasons up here have had cooler Spring/ Summer temperatures.
