Our effect on environment seen at lake

Believe in global warming? What a stupid question. If you don't think we've got that problem right here, take a ride out to Clarks Hill Lake. It's just frightening.

I take my dogs out there once each week. All summer, I watched as the water level fell, week after week, foot after foot. Now, there are three-foot-plus cliffs forming around the perimeter. Our last rain caused incredible erosion and eight-foot crevices down the beaches.

What is it going to take to get our attention?

Please, please turn off the water every chance you get. Check your tire pressure. Stop polluting the planet with bottled water.

Don't believe me? Take your kids to the lake. It may not be here by the time they grow up.
