1.0 How climate change is impacting Las Vegas

Las Vegas is just minutes away from America’s largest man-made reservoir, Lake Mead. This is the source of Las Vegas’ water, and the main source for Phoenix, Tucson, and San Diego.

Gaze upon Lake Mead from the visitor center at Hoover Dam. It was an amazing site to see – all the snowmelt and rain from several upstream states flows down through the Grand Canyon, and collects in Lake Mead. The water came almost to the top of the dam in the 1980s and 90s. But now, in 2021 you’ll be shocked by the immense volume of water that is NOT there.
