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

Megan Sever writes: Super cool story about anthropogenic effects of water withdrawal moving mountains, literally.

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.
