  • Water | Coyote Crossing
    no income This one sounds good Every scientific study confirms that global warming will cause the amount of water in the Colorado River to decline yet because we already use every drop there is none to spare To fill reservoirs takes surplus water and there is no surplus Within a couple of decades the Colorado River system will have too little water to maintain two large reservoirs even half full requiring us to sacrifice Lake Powell in favor of Lake Mead But don t expect to hear it from the US Bureau of Reclamation it continues to deny the significance of global warming promising that there will always be plenty of water in the Colorado River and its reservoirs the moral and scientific equivalent of the promises of the Corps of Engineers that the levees would protect New Orleans Why do we have federal water agencies that we cannot trust James Lawrence Powell on his book Dead Pool Lake Powell Global Warming and the Future of Water in the West Reviewing Dead Pool The Salt Lake Tribune made the following observations For eight years under George W Bush the Bureau of Reclamation has refused to acknowledge the effects that global warming is having and will yet have on the Colorado in spite of record temperatures and the recent 500 year drought that nearly brought Lake Powell to its knees Instead the bureau continues to use only data from the last century the first half of which was one of the wettest periods in the known history of the Colorado According to Bush s BOR in 2050 Lake Powell which reflects the health of the river as a whole will stand at 3 660 feet just 40 feet below full pool Studies done by climate scientists suggest an entirely different future Recent tree ring studies have shown that the true multicentury average flow of the river is well below that used by the BOR They also show periods when river flow even without the effects of global warming was lower than that experienced in our 500 year drought When one adds to this natural variability and drought prone history even a conservative estimate of projected global warming effects the results are devastating Current estimates of how much the flow of the Colorado might be reduced range between 6 and 30 percent Using just a 10 percent figure and accepting the bureau s own estimates of increased demand and new draws such as the Lake Powell pipeline Powell gives a harrowing scenario in which Lake Powell drops to dead pool by 2022 rendering projects such as the pipeline useless almost as soon as they become operational But far scarier is the possibility that in this time frame the effects of the devastation of the Colorado due to overuse and reduced flow could well render life in today s desert megacities such as Phoenix and Las Vegas impossible What Powell s book shows is that global warming is without any stretch of imagination

    raise that semaphore here at the start so no one will feel misled by an opening passage in which a slim young woman who is not in any sense a geologist steps down from a train in Rawlins Wyoming in order to go north by stagecoach into country that was still very much the Old West She arrived in the Autumn of 1905 when she was twenty three Her hair was so blond it looked white In Massachusetts a few months before she had graduated from Wellesley College and had been awarded a Phi Beta Kappa key which now hung from a chain around her neck Her field was classical studies In addition to her skills in Latin and Greek she could handle a horse expertly but never had she made a journey into a region so remote as the one that lay before her Meanwhile Rawlins surprised her Rawlins where shootings had once been so frequent that there seemed to be as citizens put it a man for breakfast every morning Rawlins halfway across a state that was spending far more per annum than to support its nineteen year old university She had expected a backward town a frontier town a street full of badmen like Big Nose George the road agent the plunderer of stagecoaches who signed his hidden treasure maps B N George Instead this October evening she was met at the station by a lackey with a handcart who wheeled her luggage to the Ferris Hotel A bellboy took over his chest a constellation of buttons The place was three stories high and cozy with steam heat The lights were electric There were lace curtains What does it matter she reflected if the pitchers lack spouts There is so much to appreciate in that passage the alternation of long and short sentences the feeling of momentum building in sentences like the first two in paragraph two and artful landing in the short simple declaratives that follow It is writing that nearly begs to be read aloud It is music Share this Email Like this Like Loading This entry was posted in Uncategorized and tagged Books Writing on April 14 2008 by Chris Clarke Post navigation Picking up that gauntlet Some Observations on Xantusia vigilis 7 thoughts on Music Orange April 14 2008 at 9 15 am McPhee rocks And not just about geology rim shot I catch myself writing far too many blog comments with a stuttered and awkward cadence without smooth transitions between sentences Alas I am often too lazy to fix it and instead just hit the button to publish Bad girl No cookie for me Sven DIMIlo April 14 2008 at 1 36 pm McPhee rocks And not just about geology rim shot Indeed also about well oranges for example Orange And American shad though mileage seems to vary on that last I sent McPhee a gushing piece of fanmail after finishing The Founding Fish and got a hand written note in return

  • Books | Coyote Crossing | Page 2
    buddy I found your site just about the time Zeke died and I cried along with you then as my own dog had died not too long before that It s a moving and beautifully written tale and I m glad that you decided to write it CRN stalwart jmartin pulled out the stops in her feedback in a very flattering and detailed review I ve pasted it below Enjoy reading and if you find yourself curious as to whether the praise for Walking With Zeke is warranted please consider buying your very own copy I here swallow the last remnants of my false modesty and turn this post over to jmartin Thank you Walking with Zeke I admittedly had two worries about the book How could the last years of a dog no matter how cherished fail to seem slight in comparison to Clarke s masterful CRN essays How could material initially contained in blog posts be ordered or shaped Both concerns were unfounded I love this book unalloyed I First and perhaps shockingly this is not a dog book Rather Clarke has written a memoir on his enmeshment his overlapping boundaries with the natural world Clarke himself admits only that he writes about wildlife family paleontology and Zeke through the lens of how I feel about my relationship with myself I submit that Zeke is not truly a subject at all but rather a joint venturer and co author His royalties one presumes were paid in advance in filet tender Clarke with Zeke walks through landscapes the Bay Area the Mojave Northern New York State with an unmatched ability to inhabit the growing and the breathing the fossil and its stone His writing is umami and so triggers those newly discovered receptors The reader tastes the savory the yum There are the careful observations which you want to carry away and sleep with as Freda the rat does with dollar bills from Clarke s wallet After a Christmas tree is sacrificed t he shredder smells of conifer sachet A fire in the Oakland Hills spews l ive embers the size of chickpeas Soaproot leaves are frozen splashes around imagined points of impact Gardening on a hill of diatomite fossil Miocene plankton is like walking on very stale halvah There are the pervasive seams of esoteric knowledge botany gardening corvid behaviors paleontology geology Clarke displays the world s workings the mechanism of cholla barbs co evolution of dogs and humans how soaproot s saponin filled leaves suggest assignment to the Agave family Mayan legends of the coyote the altitudinal range of the Joshua Tree Clarke obviously loves the physical world with his head as well as his heart Each detail flows seamlessly from the narrative yet lends freight and authority There is throughout one must note a witty inimitable authorial voice for which Zeke is blameless A vet suggests opiates for pain The author fears that Zeke will write senseless fever dream poetry and riffs a Kibble Khan Coleridge parody Clarke finds a tail shed by a Western Fence lizard likely under feline duress He uses it to boost the growth of a potted cactus in hopes that the plant someday will fall on a cat and effect the revenge of the tail Musing on a Buddhist approach to environmental protection Clarke opines I want no part of any enlightenment posited on the nonexistence of bird song of capsicum of salt water or libido or tooth enamel Do we hear Clarke speak about his dog Absolutely his book sings just as he sang to Zeke on every walk nonsense mainly about the squirrels as we walk past them or about his bad breath or dirty feet or general fuzziness But Zeke is but one strand of Clarke s braided love of the physical world On hands and knees in January Clarke grazes the miner s lettuce of the California hills it tastes like home and spinach II We also read of course of Zeke s decline and Clarke s grief At book s end Zeke s world is his bed the author s world gaze is similarly blindered This is exactly where Clarke made an unerring decision to maintain blog post order The posts themselves had not been journal snippets but rather had knit past present and future Posts meditated on memories current events and anticipation of loss a long life is a landscape of holes where things once grew Clarke marries these layers of the human temporal with observations on geologic time The result is a deep earth perspective of aging death and grief This perspective wrings out tears and self pity and instead impresses a dry but detailed story into the land The sorrows of life on earth are the earth Passages like this preserve our brief human lives and the even shorter lives of the dogs who leave us behind Green serpentine from the earth s mantle sand laid down on the bed of a Miocene sea shale made of silt washed down from the Sierra diatomite from a deep trench off Monterey all mix as pebbles in the bed of Pinole Creek All of them will wash out to the bay eventually A gravel delta runs fifty yards out from the creek mouth now It was not there last year At quarter to three tomorrow morning the tide will wash over it again Share this Email Like this Like Loading This entry was posted in Uncategorized and tagged Books Zeke on March 24 2008 by Chris Clarke Quick note by Chris
