That happens when 4 states are using it. It might also help to know that Vegas and the Surrounding area has been in a drought ever since I can remember. Its been about 10 years since it started and It just gets hotter and hotter every year.. Most people don't even have grass anymore to help save water.

Little know fact, North Las Vegas is considered a disaster zone. =)

I'm so happy i live in an age where there actually is nature.

The population aren't going to stop raising (unless some government-created plague gets released), so we have to build more, and more and more.
I'm certain almost everything is gonna disappear sometime.

But Humans ARE nature. We have as much as a right as all the other species. Actually we have more, we proved to be the best. We are on top, this is our world.
Not only that, but we have taken it upon ourselves to protect this world.
Not you. You arnt doing anything, but people who are actually motivated to do this, they are the ones helping.

Population isn't the problem, the whole population of the world could live very comfortably in the state of Texas, and shoulder to shoulder we would only fill up the city of San Francisco. Most of the land we "own" is for farms and food animals, not our own personal living space so we seem more populace than we actually are. Over consumption in our problem not population, we try to mass grow and mass farm animals in few farms, we can't sustain that way, even if there isn't a real population problem, we live beyond our means and harm the planet, but it isn't our population that is the problem, it's in our nature to keep wanting.

*just an interesting fact, they say in order for countries to continue having a thriving working population they need 2.4 children for every couple so that there are young adults to replace the elderly when they can no longer work. Most countries don't hit that mark, populations are getting older and dying without having enough people to replace them.

We can't sustain the current population, I expect it wont rise much further before resources become too scarce and people will either starve, die of dehydration or die fighting in wars over resources. but when we're all dead nature will come back :) which is a bonus.

because no one is starving in developing countries or anything

Did you actually read what I said? I acknowledged the fact that we can't sustain the population.
#22 to #20 - mutants (11/16/2012) [-]
No we can. It's just that the developed countries are hoarding all the food and subsidizing their farmers so that they can compete with African farmers and pretty much outsource them in their own country.

That's true at the moment, and it's true that we can sustain 7 billion at this precise moment in time. I refer to the fact that the rate of consumption of 7 billion (the current population) cannot be sustained in the long run. Food isn't the only limiting factor, I'm sure you've heard about sink holes opening up in Florida due to underground aquifers being drained? the same is true in many places around the world. For instance the Aral sea is drying up because all the water is being used in agriculture. Some nations in Europe and Asia also depend strongly on fresh water from glacial melt to bring them water, but glaciers are melting, so soon they will face a crisis too. On top of the water problem, soil degradation by agriculture and deforestation is also reducing the capacity to produce food. Remember the american dustbowl situation? that's still happening, Haiti only has 1% of it's forests left and the land that used to be forest is now infertile dust. Basically I'm not claiming to know what will happen in the future, but I'm too cautious about the worst case scenarios to just sit here believing everything will be fine. that's why I believe we should keep the population lower until we have the technology to support a higher population in which no one suffers and starves.
