The Mississippi River Is Drying Up
Michael Snyder, Contributor
Activist Post

The worst drought in more than 50 years is having a devastating impact on the Mississippi River. The Mississippi has become very thin and very narrow, and if it keeps on dropping there is a very real possibility that all river traffic could get shut down. And considering the fact that approximately 60 percent of our grain, 22 percent of our oil and natural gas, and and one-fifth of our coal travel down the Mississippi River, that would be absolutely crippling for our economy.

Re: The Mississippi River Is Drying Up
Unfortunately, vast stretches of the Mississippi are already dangerously low. The following is an excerpt from a transcript of a CNN report that aired on August 14th....

You might think this is some kind of desert just outside of Memphis. It's not. I'm actually standing on the exposed bottom of the Mississippi River. That's how dramatic the drought impact is being felt here. Hard to believe, a year ago we were talking about record flooding. Now, they are worried about a new kind of record: a record low. The river was three miles wide here, it's now down to three tenths of a mile. And that's causing all kinds of problems. There are some benefits, I mean, take a look over here: new beach front. In fact, some quip that now the Mississippi River has more beaches than the entire state of Florida, which would be funny if it didn't have an impact on trade.

A lot of stuff we use goes up and down the Mississippi River. We are talking steel, coal, ore, grain. The problem is now a lot of those barges have had to lighten their loads, and even doing that, they are still running aground. There is a real fear that there could be a possibility of closing the Mississippi River. If that happens, well, all that product that used to be carried cheaply by barge is now going to be carried more expensively by truck or train. And guess who is going to pay for all of that.

Re: The Mississippi River Is Drying Up
Sorting through info at wiki I noted spring of '11 the Army Core of Engineers did a lot of aggressive flood control work upstream to prevent downstream flood events which happen even in drought conditions which were happening in the region last year too.

So I'm wondering if last year's efforts efforts are causing problems this year in southernmost u.s. mississippi region.

Thanks for your comment...hf

That was the first thing that came to my mind...

Where did all the water go?

Well doesn't it line up that upstream water is still being diverted in rather serious ways?
So naively knowing little, depending on northern spring runoff with it's complex features the question is how powerful was this year's runoff.

If northern runoff was less than impressive couple that with the last southern severe drought 50 years ago.

Next question would be if northern runoff was standard this year that would not be enough to lower the level of the mississippi.

So I wonder if what is really happening is that the ACE is making up for endangered crumbling dams, as I recall there were 2 or 3, and so they may have done a semi-permanent fix diverting flow to places that prior to now had none.

For certain we're not getting the whole story. That is for certain.

Re: The Mississippi River Is Drying Up
I live in Mississippi. The drought is what is causing the Mississippi river to shrink. We have not enough rain to help. I have noticed trees and bushes are turning brown and dieing. I have included a link of my local news to help you understand. Hope it helps.

Re: The Mississippi River Is Drying Up
I live along the river south of St. Louis and its down to a few feet in places, you could measure it with a tape measure. Lowest ive ever seen it. Maybe it will dry up completely and we can walk acrossed it from Missouri into Illinois. Oh wait, who would want to go to Illinois.
Fact are important, They should be presented first, opinions will vary.

Also, salt water is backing up the Mississippi affecting drinking water. How far with this go?

What a doll! Thank you, Wow!

I'm probably/possibly wrong, and like you would like to understand this more.
I usually don't go into 'conspiracy'. Still, a year ago drought was hitting the same region while the concern was 'too much' water coming from the north.
This year still drought and no water from the north either.
Maybe easier to find how full the north reserviors are this
year and is the water still being diverted.

Quite honestly, what difference does it make. The MSM has so toxified any possibility of ordinary 1+1=2 understanding of anything there is no chance of putting an end to corporate destruction of our life systems. It is very serious.
Peeps just take the bait against their own critical survival every single time which of course endangers everything else which depends on our respect of these systems.

In addition if you could look at it this way.
What is being asked is what is going on upstream. What ordinary mechanics if any may have been done to stop the water.

In my opinion we have no comprehensive understanding of our own planet let alone space beyond to venture a proper hypothesis of ANYTHING.
Humans fasten themselves a single ideas which shove aside any sense of the whole and how multiple single elements interact.

What if I came to your house, found your water well and dumped a thousand gallons of corexit into it.
You accuse me of poisoning your well so I respond by changing the subject to solar system heating up.

I won't allow you to catch and stop my ruinous actions forcing you to talk about how chemicals kill sealife, plankton and create heat by putrefaction and highly complex interactions no one understands thoroughly.
THERE IS NEVER A CONTRUCTIVE SOLUTION And your well is still poisoned.

This is how inadequate the human mind is to the point of imploding and destroying it's own chances of surviving.
