A recent article in the online magazine Yale Environment 360 is headlined “The West’s Great River Hits Its Limits: Will the Colorado Run Dry?” And the sub-headline: “As the Southwest faces rapid growth and unrelenting drought, the Colorado River is in crisis, with too many demands on its diminishing flow. Now those who depend on the river must confront the hard reality that their supply of Colorado water may be cut off.”

Yale Environment 360 is in the middle of publishing a five-part series on the Colorado River and today we’ll talk with the author of the series, Jim Robbins.

Jim Robbins is a veteran journalist based in Helena, Montana. He has written for the New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler, and numerous other publications. His latest book is “The Wonder of Birds: What they Tell Us about the World, Ourselves and a Better Future.”
