Holy cotton bales: ProPublica article missed the mark

ProPublica, a journal that purports to produce investigative journalism in the public interest, has published a series of articles under the term: “Killing the Colorado.” Its first article is entitled “Holy Crop – How Federal Dollars Are Financing the Water Crisis in the West” (May 27). At the heart of this odd article is the notion that cotton subsidies, as provided to Arizona cotton farmers under the federal farm programs, are the culprit in the declining levels of the Colorado River. Well, this is just palpable nonsense.
