Kamala Harris made some bizarre claims about climate change today from the White House.
Kamala Harris, who’s still wearing a face mask despite reportedly being vaccinated, made some bizarre claims per a video shared from the White House.
Starting @3:30, Harris said:
Last week I was at Lake Mead, in Nevada. I’m sure all of you know it, but to see it. I stood there with those incredible folks who work in that area and there’s a bathtub ring which is so clearly marked. It’s not even gradual. It’s not like there’s a slow fade. It’s so clearly marked, the distinction between where the water always was and where it is now.
And the significance of that, of the contrast, just in the color is how quickly, this all changed so drastically. And they describe the length, of the height of the recession of water, it, it’s, is longer than the height of the Statue of Liberty. And this is just in the last 20 years.
And there you have it. Kamala Harris claims Lake Mead has lost water and the obvious answer she is trying to sell is climate change.
She fibbed on much but especially on her reference to the “last 20 years”. From 2011 to 2021 the population of just the metropolitan area of Las Vegas has grown by 40%, from 1,973,000 to 2,772,000, hence so much water consumption. Nevada also exports water and electrical power to other states, incl. California, Arizona, and some of Mexico.
