+ - Humans causing California's mountains to grow->

Submitted by Megan Sever
Megan Sever (3654295) writes "Super cool story about anthropogenic effects of water withdrawal moving mountains, literally. According to new research published today and reported in EARTH Magazine, humans have been causing the Sierra Nevada mountains to rise. By withdrawing water for irrigation and other purposes, we have inadvertently removed water from the mountains, allowing them to uplift. The research shows a seasonal and annual cycle."
