Colorado running dry

The Colorado river in the western part of the USA is running dry. Climate change and population growth are the main reasons for the fact that the Colorado river, the lifeline of the American west, nowadays ends somewhere in the middle of the deserrt, and not in the Gulf of Mexico anymore.

 

Together with photographer Ronald de Hommel, I travelled this great river last summer, as part of our `disputed waters` project.
