Luminant's Phoney Statistics Concerning Our Precious Water

"Climate change will have a significant impact on the sustainability of water supplies in the coming decades. A new analysis, performed by consulting firm Tetra Tech for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), examined the effects of global warming on water supply and demand in the contiguous United States. The study found that more than 1,100 counties -- one-third of all counties in the lower 48 -- will face higher risks of water shortages by mid-century as the result of global warming. More than 400 of these counties will face extremely high risks of water shortages."

I'm no statistician but I'll bet that Luminant's projections concerning water levels in Lake Granbury are entirely based upon current realities and not the future. The truth is, the future for water resources for most of the entire southern half of the United States, is dire, to say the least, but most people here in Texas don't want to think about these unpleasant possibilites. 

For the entire article on this study from the National Resources Defense Council: http://www.nrdc.org/globalWarming/watersustainability/

Good question to ask what Luminant's water projections are based on.

The point is that most of us are not facing reality about the future of our water resources. We take water for granted because it has always been there and it's always been easy. Those days are over now.

Luminant will not produce statistics that are realistic on this issue because that would hurt their cause. It's up to us to figure this out instead of buying the propaganda. Something I learned a long time ago was that if I didn't take care of myself, no one else would. It's up to us to take care of ourselves. I say 'NO' to reactors 3 & 4. We just can't afford it.
