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.

Our Earth, including the atmosphere, is a closed system.
the amount of any given material, including water, is a constant; the problems come with availability & location.
the water in my hot tub or in those previously used 50 gallon drums that Mormons collect water in Isn't available for fire fighting, is it?
It can be applied to flushing my toilet or watering my garden, but not conveniently, not much else.
Nature has cycles, but how much human activities change / alter / effect them is an open question, isn't it?
Yes, I know that my post is simplistic, but simple truths shouldn't be ignored.

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.

Do think population growth could be responsible for Climate Change and the Great Salt Lake shrinkage?
