One perspective comes from an environmentalist advocating the rehabilitation of Glen Canyon, the spectacular landscape that was submerged when the Lake was created. Another perspective is from a fishing guide looking at the end of his livelihood.
These two videos cover some of the same ground but both deserve a watch because the bring home vividly the dramatic change in landscape, and water resources, that an aridifying climate is bringing.
