"The Death of the Colorado"

The Colorado River, a waterway that stretches over 1400 miles from its origins in the northwest United States to the Sea of Cortez in Mexico, is a dying waterway. The river is a shell of its former self as overpopulation, pollution, damning, global warming and apathy combine to deteriorate not only the natural habitat, but also degrade the cultures and economies that historically relied upon its bounty for life.

The Cerro Prieto geothermal power plant in Sonora Mexico allegedly pollutes a large swath of the Colorado River in Mexico. Downstream many people rely on the water to provide fish and water for agriculture.
