> I have lived in Salt Lake long enough to know that the level of the great salt lake fluctuates severely
Yes it does, and the long term trend is downwards. If there is a year with above average precipitation, the level goes up. If there is below average precipitation, it goes down. The problem is Utah diverts an increasing amount of the inflow before it gets to the lake, so overall it is shrinking. A wet year 36 years ago doesn't change that.
Haha. One problem solved but an even bigger one created for the folks of Missouri. Problem wouldn't be solved for them. Nosiree. Imagine millions of Mormons showing up all of a sudden and moving in on your once nice little town. But I guess that would just be a repeat of history for the Mormons. "God gave Missour to us!"
More than 15 years ago I was going through the Nauvoo region of Illinois and dealing with farmers. Many did not like Mormons at all. Main reason was their moving into Nauvoo and telling local landowners "God has given this to us and you will be gone before long, one way or another". That attitude was not appreciated.
Just as in the 1800's Mormons are lousy neighbors and bring "persecution" on themselves.
My junior GA brother bought 40 acres there at least 15 or twenty years ago. Luckily for the farmers he hasn't moved there. I probably ready to parcel it off to other Mormons. I don't ask. Would be interesting to know how many have done similar since you indicate the Farmers there have noticed that "special Mormon presence."
The dry lake bed does have a hard crust which keeps the dust down but airborne dust from the dry lake bed can make people sick. It can affect water quality. Utah also has serious water problems; especially, the southern part of the state.
Oh well. We are building more temples and we have the new PISS up a rope youth program.
My father's farm bordered the GSL in West Corinne and the lake had moved a long ways out compared to when I was young before we sold the farm. I tend to wonder how it was this past year since Bear Lake was filled to capacity this year and it hasn't been in YEARS--like 30 years. You could drive out onto the beaches for many years, but they had trouble finding spots to just stay for the day this year.
Hyrum Dam was FULL this year and I haven't seen that in all the years I've lived here.
But I definitely don't deny global warming. My fears are how it will effect my children and if I have any grandchildren. I'll be dead.
I know the Utah State DNR Water Division people monitor GSL tributary water usage. DNR water folks also know that the greatest (?) man-made ecological disaster is Joseph Stalin’s diverting two rivers, the Amu Darya the Syr Darya for his Soviet cotton industry, which killed the Aral Sea. After enormous effort and many failures, a small portion of the north end of the Aral Sea is restored. Meanwhile, the remainder is a toxic dust source which causes all kinds of illness and distress. Socialism screwed Uzbeks and Kazakhs in that area.
Regarding AGW, what is the hottest decade in the last 100 years, and what was the concentration of CO2? Hints: not in my lifetime (I’ve seen my 50th birthday),and CO2 concentration that decade was lower than today’s 420 ppm.
It's almost like someone is so preoccupied with denials of science and hatred of socialism that he must include those two things in every post even if he does so in contradictory ways. It's positively Orwellian, I say.

if only they could have their deal keep up with how someone else so often finds a way to pose themselves as (supposedly) academically and intellectually superior in their many posts
I am sorry, but when I hear about "shrinkage" in Utard, I cannot help but recall empirical evidence of shrinkage in another domain - that being the size of a Morman man junk. True, the pocket books of the average mormon is shrinking due to the pressure of donations to the cult. True, the average IQ of the mormon is shrinking due to cog dis and having to attend mind numbing meetings. However, the size of a Mormons junk has been shrinking begining with Joe and Brig - the tootsie roll brothers as I call them. On average, the size of a non-mormon's junk is 5.637'', but a comparable mormon's junk is only 2.3468. While I understand that the Q70/Q15 bring the average down for the Mormons, still shrinkage is a real problem for mormons.
