What will happen when the Great Salt Lake disappears? This video obituary anticipates that not-too-distant day.

Imaging a day when Utah will no longer be home to the Great Salt Lake.

(Johanna Bossart, Westminster College alumna) “She supported Utah’s economy for many years, but we did not adequately fund her health care in time. Had we done so, we may not be mourning her death today."

Great Salt Lake Institute’s Bonnie Baxter and Jaimi Butler wrote an obituary for the feared demise of the Great Salt Lake. Listen as Baxter reads the piece on the shores of the shrinking lake.

A version of the obituary was originally published by Catalyst Magazine; you can read the piece here.
