USA Today: These first mandatory cutbacks on the Colorado River represent “the first acknowledgment that we have a problem and we need to solve it,” said Udall, a water and climate scientist at Colorado State University. “It’s the beginning of a solution and it’s also the beginning of the real problem. I mean, as much as we’ve seen this problem in the last 20 years, the climate models really project a grim future with regard to temperatures.”
