California Is Turning Back Into A Desert And There Are No Contingency Plans

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Drought - Public DomainOnce upon a time, much of the state of California was a barren desert.  And now, thanks to the worst drought in modern American history, much of the state is turning back into one.  Scientists tell us that the 20th century was the wettest century that the state of California had seen in 1000 years.  But now weather patterns are reverting back to historical norms, and California is rapidly running out of water.  It is being reported that the state only has approximately a one year supply of water left in the reservoirs, and when the water is all gone there are no contingency plans.  Back in early 2014, California Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency for the entire state, but since that time water usage has only dropped by 9 percent.  That is not nearly enough.  The state of California has been losing more than 12 million acre-feet of total water a year since 2011, and we are quickly heading toward an extremely painful water crisis unlike anything that any of us have ever seen before.

But don’t take my word for it.  According to the Los Angeles Times, Jay Famiglietti “is the senior water scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory/Caltech and a professor of Earth system science at UC Irvine”.  What he has to say about the horrific drought in California is extremely sobering

As our “wet” season draws to a close, it is clear that the paltry rain and snowfall have done almost nothing to alleviate epic drought conditions. January was the driest in California since record-keeping began in 1895. Groundwater and snowpack levels are at all-time lows. We’re not just up a creek without a paddle in California, we’re losing the creek too.

Data from NASA satellites show that the total amount of water stored in the Sacramento and San Joaquin river basins — that is, all of the snow, river and reservoir water, water in soils and groundwater combined — was 34 million acre-feet below normal in 2014. That loss is nearly 1.5 times the capacity of Lake Mead, America’s largest reservoir.

Statewide, we’ve been dropping more than 12 million acre-feet of total water yearly since 2011. Roughly two-thirds of these losses are attributable to groundwater pumping for agricultural irrigation in the Central Valley. Farmers have little choice but to pump more groundwater during droughts, especially when their surface water allocations have been slashed 80% to 100%. But these pumping rates are excessive and unsustainable. Wells are running dry. In some areas of the Central Valley, the land is sinking by one foot or more per year.

Are you starting to understand why so many experts are so alarmed?

For much more from Famiglietti, check out this 60 Minutes interview.

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, essentially the entire state is suffering drought conditions right now.  And as you can see from the map below, most of the state is currently experiencing either the highest or the second-highest classification of drought…

US Drought Monitor California 2015

Nearly 40 million people live in the state of California at the moment.

What are they all going to do when the water is gone?

In some rural areas, reservoirs are already nearly bone dry.  And in other areas, the water quality has gone way down.  For example, in one Southern California neighborhood black water is now coming out of the taps

Residents of a Southern California neighborhood are concerned about the fact that the water flowing out of the taps in their homes is the color black. That’s right; the water coming out of their faucets is indeed black — not gray, not cloudy — but black. Inky, opaque black water that the water company says is okay to drink.

Those who live in Gardena, California, are understandably skeptical when asked to consume water that strongly resembles crude oil or something emitted by a squid. The water reportedly also has an “odor of rotten eggs or sewer smell,” according to one resident.

Perhaps you don’t care about what happens to California.

Perhaps you believe that they are just getting what they deserve.

And you might be right about that.

But the truth is that this is a crisis for all of us, because an enormous amount of our fresh produce is grown in the state.

As I discussed in a previous article, the rest of the nation is very heavily dependent on the fruits and vegetables grown in California.  The following numbers represent California’s contribution to our overall production…

99 percent of the artichokes

44 percent of asparagus

two-thirds of carrots

half of bell peppers

89 percent of cauliflower

94 percent of broccoli

95 percent of celery

90 percent of the leaf lettuce

83 percent of Romaine lettuce

83 percent of fresh spinach

a third of the fresh tomatoes

86 percent of lemons

90 percent of avocados

84 percent of peaches

88 percent of fresh strawberries

97 percent of fresh plums

Without the agricultural production of the state of California, we are in a massive amount of trouble.

And of course there are other areas all over the globe that are going through similar things.  For instance, taps in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo are running dry as Brazil experiences the worst drought that it has seen in 80 years.

The world simply does not have enough fresh water left at this point, and that is why water is being called “the new oil”.  The following comes from CBS News

It’s been said that the wars of the 21st century may well be fought over water. The Earth’s population has more than doubled over the last 50 years and the demand for fresh water — to drink and to grow food — has surged along with it. But sources of water like rainfall, rivers, streams, reservoirs, certainly haven’t doubled. So where is all that extra water coming from? More and more, it’s being pumped out of the ground.

Water experts say groundwater is like a savings account — something you draw on in times of need. But savings accounts need to be replenished, and there is new evidence that so much water is being taken out, much of the world is in danger of a groundwater overdraft.

And if scientists are right, what we are experiencing right now may just be the very beginning of our problems.  In fact, one team of researchers has concluded that the Southwestern United States is headed for a “megadrought” that could last for decades

Scientists had already found that the Southwestern United States were at great risk of experiencing a significant megadrought (in this case meaning drought conditions that last for over 35 years) before the end of the 21st century. But a new study published in Science Advances added some grim context to those predictions.

Columbia University climate scientists Jason Smerdon and Benjamin Cook, and Cornell University’s Toby Ault were co-authors on the study. They took data from tree rings and other environmental records of climate from the Southwest and compared them to the projections of 17 different climate models that look at precipitation and soil moisture. When they made the comparison between past and future, they found that all the models agreed: the next big megadrought is coming, and it will be way worse than anything we’ve seen in over 1,000 years–including droughts that have been credited with wiping out civilizations.

Needless to say, along with any water crisis comes a food crisis.

Virtually everything that we eat requires a tremendous amount of water to grow.  And at this point, the world is already eating more food than it produces most years.

So what is going to happen to us as this water crisis gets even worse?

    So we sow, so we reap. I am actually in awe at all that is happening that so few are paying attention to. This is Biblical stuff that is taking place…..I have no idea what the wake up call will be that actually brings people out of the slumber they are in , but the hour is perilously late…

    • ItIsWell

      So many people have hardened their hearts and will not hear the truth. I know my God is in control and I pray that the Lord gives my family and I wisdom for what’s to come.

            Well, if you’re positing the existence of God here, then maybe we should wonder why God would be telling them to “get out” instead of making it rain.

        DOWNVOTE FUNCTION IS NOT WORKING HERE ! ! ! !

        Why not ?

        Why can I not vote down the religious fanatics and intellectually challenged people who have added their ridiculous and ancient superstitions to this site ?

        S.G.

        • Nov111805 .

          I am sitting here laughing out loud at your comment! Wanna know what God Almighty thinks of all your “intellect”?! But, feel free to think yourself to be the smartest individual in the room. As for me and my house? We will put all our trust, faith and yes, my ENTIRE future into the hands of God and His son, Jesus Christ. Put your faith in man and see how far that gets ya. By the way…..don’t forget the “vote down” buttons don’t work! :-)

          • Nunyer Business

            You put your faith in an entity that drowned all of humanity and only left one family alive… because he was pissed at them… even though he gave them free will? Brilliant reasoning. I second the above poster’s comment. Religious fanatics are ridiculous and have no ability to reason.

          • Nov111805 .

            Just for the record it took Noah 120 YEARS to build that ark and the ENTIRE TIME he warned, begged and pleaded with people to “get right with God” because judgement was coming and NO ONE……NO ONE……NOT ONE PERSON LISTENED! They mocked, scoffed and told Noah he had “no ability to reason”. OMGosh…….this sounds so familiar! And yes, we ARE being warned. People are shouting it out and again, no one is listening because they are “so highly evolved” and “intelligent” I mean really…..why put your faith in a loving Father (God Almighty) and His son, Jesus Christ who died for our sins? Put your faith in an evil world and man and ……. SCIENCE! I mean our modern day scientist are so much more smarter then God right?
            You think I lack ability to reason? I do not trust man and I certainly won’t put my faith in science.
            I know the promises God has made and he only wants good for me and He has said so in His Word, The Bible.
            So, bottom line yes, I serve a risen Savior, and a LOVING God who gave me free will to choose and I have and so have you and good luck with that. You have been warned……the flood is coming. Now you know. By the way I would suggest you GET ON THE ARK! But, it’s up to you……it’s that nasty “free will thing” again. And THIS TIME the ark is Jesus Christ. John 3:16
            MARANATHA!

          • Nunyer Business

            That is incredibly poor logic. Yes, you have an inability to reason. Your logic says, “Because some fictitious guy was warned by a fictitious entity that the world would be devastated by a flood, then I’m brilliant to be crying wolf that my fictitious entity is warning us now”. Do you realize how batshit crazy that is? No, you don’t, because you’re batshit crazy.

            But AGAIN, lets say there IS a god, he DID warn Noah, and he’s warning you now. Seriously, you are saying that you PUT YOUR FAITH in an entity that is so violently psychopathic that he will murder people by the billions? Yeah, sounds as logical as being a Jew who put his faith in HItler. Brilliant deductive reasoning Watson.

          • Nov111805 .

            I’m sorry but was it not YOU who referred to the flood in the first place so if you referenced it then you must be aware…….so, in your logic, if you don’t believe then WHY even use that Biblical truth at all?
            I will no longer answer you but I will wish you, again, good luck in all your future endeavors. I will pray for you (even though I am sure you just rolled your eyes) and, tell ya what……I will see you when you are bowing to Jesus Christ because every knee shall bow and every tongue confess. Yes, even yours.
            Have a lovely day…….I am wasting your time. (kicking dust off sandals now and moving on)

          • Nunyer Business

            Sighhhh… because this is how logic works. IF you believe in an entity that murdered all of humanity except for one family, then it is illogical to trust that entity. Do you get it? This is why I said you are unable to reason. You don’t get to have it both ways. You don’t get to illogically trust a murderous psychopath, but call me illogical for pointing out your belief because I don’t believe in your fiction.

            And you can talk to your fiction all you want to. It will do just as much as asking Zeus for help to solve your problems. In other words, anyone who talks to fictions is batshit crazy.

          • Albert8184

            No. Nobody gets it because your assertions are just…. specious assertions. After all, look at the pedagogy. How do you know what you know about God? Did he tell you this stuff? There’s nothing wrong with his logic in that it contains an internal consistency, or at least you have no evidence to dispute it.

          • Nunyer Business

            ??? Again, what bizarre logic you god believers have. I have not made any assertions, only the god-believers have. And they have no evidence to back up their assertions. Hence why their assertions are illogical. Consistently asserting one’s illogical position does not somehow make it logical, yet that seems to be what you are asserting.

          • Dawn Street

            There is none so blind as those who will not see, who refuse to see the truth. I’m sorry for you. May God have mercy on you and open your eyes to see the truth, what the future really holds.

          • Nunyer Business

            I agree that there are none so blind as who cannot see. So, show me the evidence of your fictitious entity. Oh, right, there is nothing for me to see.

            May Thor have mercy on you. There are none so blind as refuse to see Thor. That statement is as totally and completely idiotic as yours. Do you even DO science? Geesh. You people are just so damned idiotic.

            I guess years of indoctrination made you completely unable to use logic and reason. I feel sorry for you that you feel the need to have invisible friends, and demand that everyone else does too, so that you can feel like it’s sane.

          • Nunyer Business

            I hope that Thor saves your immortal soul and doesn’t damn you for denying his existence (rolls eyes).

          • Eric

            Fearing such a God is reasonable since He did it, they obviously deserved it. And He warns you using Noah and the flood as a reminder and an example, making you doubly stupider than Noah’s generation was for not getting on today’s ark, which is believing the gospel of salvation in Jesus who died for you using the free will you mentioned. The next destruction will be by fire though, not water. Read your Bible, why should you die when it is so unnecessary? Salvation is just like damnation, they are both achieved without a lick of good or bad works. Adam provided our deaths before we were even born, Jesus provides life. Each is entered into by birth, you must be born again into Jesus by belief in Him, read the Bible and check it out for yourself.

          • Nunyer Business

            That post is like someone ranting at a mental institution. It literally made zero sense. Hey, the book of the Great Spaghetti Monster says that you just need to believe in HIM and he’ll save you. You are stupid if you aren’t a Pastafarian!

            Wow, it’s amazing that in this day and age, some folks still need to believe in their fairy tales.

          • Eric

            Except that Jesus is real history and His disciples all except John were martyred but did not charge their true witness of His life, works, death and resurrection. Unlike your vain imaginings of Pastafarianism or evolution, manmade global warming, and whatever other foolish conclusions you pretend are real. Yet even had you been there 2000 years ago to see it you maybe would not have believed in Him either, His own people’s religious leaders believed He did his miracles by the Devils deception and the Romans who nailed Him to the cross did not think it that important for an explanation, Pilate entertained himself with the question, “What is truth”? So some people choose not to see the truth because sinners hate the light because they love sin and do not want to repent of it or lose their lives or status in this world. They have their reward in the here and now, whatever you can grasp. You may see people like me put away in institutions for the insane or killed and tortured if God allows it, but we will not turn from our Lord and Savior. Because we put our faith in the eternal home God promised those who believe Him.

          • Nunyer Business

            Even Jesus is a myth! There is ZERO historical references of him! If he was real, his life was so ordinary that no one thought to write about his exploits until two generations after every witness was dead? Yeah, that makes sense. Contrast that with the Buddha, where scribes followed him around, writing down his every word as he said it.

            If he was real, doncha think SOMEONE would have thought to actually write down such miraculous events as they happened and not wait 100 years? Yeah, but you Medieval myth believers dont’ like to think about such things.

            You have your ‘faith’ in fictititous entities that wipe out earth when they are mad. Just dont’ expect sane people to be so stupid.

          • Nunyer Business

            You said, “You may see people like me put away in institutions for the insane or killed and tortured if God allows it, ”

            Yeah, some ‘loving’ entity that would allow that. They put you in insane asylums because you have an invisible friend, and you put your ‘faith’ in fictititious entities that would see you caged for your delusions, then expect everyone else to follow suit!

            It’s NATURAL to put delusional suckers like you in asylums. That’s where you belong when you have invisible friends!

          • Chunk Basker

            Did you just say Science and evolution are foolish conclusions? Wow… Thinking like this will hold back Civilization another thousand years.

            There are insane amounts of evidence to back evolution. INSANE AMOUNTS. Your whole rant can be used against you! No matter what evidence we present you, you’ll still be blind to it!

          • Eric

            Right back at you, I flip your same logic and argument as best applying to you,not me. And really ho arrogant to define your own definition of civilization as the ideal. and please explain why my or others belief in the bible is “holding back civilization”. Please be specific now and tell me what is being held back and how. For instance did Christianity hold back your right to legally smoke stupid weed or go get aids or other std’s, or right to go to the doctor and get treated and drive up insurance rates? Please elaborate you can’t just throw out your unsubstantiated prejudices as “facts”. Otherwise you might be back in the seventies worrying about the science of global cooling and impending ice age or have you so soon ” forgotten”?

          • Albert8184

            So explain please, how have you “reasoned” your way to the conclusion that God wouldn’t or shouldn’t drown all of humanity for whatever reason? I can’t wait to hear it. Let me guess… he talked to you in a vision?

          • Nunyer Business

            I have made no such assertion. There is no evidence of God, so why would I make an assertion that a fictitious entity told me anything? That is idiotic. It’s a sign of mental illness to talk to fictitious entities.

          • Albert8184

            Nonsense. You made an assertion about God’s actions.

        • DJ

          • snowiegeorgie

            Thanks ! I appreciate the presence of other people free from ancient & useless superstition(s) . Like the superstitions that drove North and South Ireland into war for decades; and, the one that drives a readiness for war between India and Pakistan; and now, the ridiculous schism that creates war between Shiite and Sunni sects, and all of them ( the differing Muslim sects ) who desire war with the “civilized” west.

            A world free of religious superstition may not be entirely free of war — but I suspect there will be fewer and less vicious wars .

            SnowieGeorgie

          • Eric

            Yeah, the kind of wars libs and commies like, against their own people who are disarmed, like PolPot Krushev, Stalin And Mao! Yeah those non religious were all one big brotherhood of man!

          • snowiegeorgie

            You do make a good point sir ! I won’t deny that . Good day to you.

            SnowieGeorgie

        • Eric

          Maybe God has a sense of humor such as letting you whine about it and also letting you know that you are not God because He is omnipotent and could down vote stupid comments such as yours if He cared to, yet you a mere mortal cannot?

          • snowiegeorgie

            The Flying Purple Spaghetti-monster. Another fine delusion. Your belief in your ancient and totally unsupported delusion(s) must be comforting. Facing reality can be challenging — so the fearful, the primitive and the deluded, cling to superstition.

            Well, in general, peoples’ BELIEF SYSTEMS cannot be challenged. Perhaps they shouldn’t be in the final analysis. So I’ll leave all of you to fester in your delusions and cease responding to them. Really, how do you challenge a MASS DELUSION ?

            Has anyone been able to persuade T. Cruise, or K. Alley or J. Travolta that their SUPREME and UNFOUNDED BELIEF IN SCIENTOLOGY is MERELY A DELUSION ? ? ?

            NOTE TO SELF : Don’t respond ever again to deluded people. THEY CANNOT BE HELPED, sadly.

          • Eric

            Moses, Noah and Jonah were some of those who Jesus spoke of and He validated the true history of the exodus, the flood, and the 3 days in the belly of the fish. Another reason besides history of the Jews and their God as well as the Christian God is the prophecies which cannot be denied. one such is that of Ezekiel 38:8 forecasting the end time regathering and reastablishment of Israel the Jewish state in the promised land. We saw this take place in 1948 the nation of Israel was reborn, and although wars are ahead still we also know that the scripture says they will not be driven out again until He returns! Which is another prophecy we are awaiting, His return!

        • Albert8184

          Since you are so wise, you should have figured out that down votes are not visually tabulated the same way up votes are. You seem to be “intellectually challenged” or something.

          • snowiegeorgie

            Oh come on – – – no reason to be so snide and snarky.

            I visit sites that display the down-votes, always.

            I had tried to downvote here and was not able to do so, even though the arrow (apparently) requested a click. First try . . . . . not obvious on the first try . . . . .

            Darned if you aren’t the smartest person on the earth. Lucky you. I’d bet you are snide and snarky to your wife too. And friends !

      • Chunk Basker

        Yes, lets throw out everything we’ve learned scientifically and blame this on God’s work. That’ll move society along. People need to start looking at this scientifically and not biblical.
        If we approached all problems that way we’d still be stuck in medieval times. Thank god we’ve learned otherwise. I’d sure hate to be stuck under the Churches Iron Fist again.

    • krinks

      I have to wonder if this began with the first “laws” instituting “gay marriage”. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised.

      • mister_roboto

        Yes, I’m sure you find it much more comforting to fall back on such medieval thinking rather than acknowledging that anthropogenic climate-change is a real thing.

        • krinks

          The Climate History of the Earth proves anthropogenic climate-change a fraud in itself. It has been much colder and much warmer in the past without so much as one dollar changing hands.

          • sharonsj

            I know I’m not supposed to call people names, but I can’t help it. Morons like you, who think climate change is a fraud, are one reason why nothing is being done about it. Climate change is why the south and west are getting drier and the northeast is getting wetter and snowier. But I suppose you think you know more than NOAA, NASA, and the rest of the world’s scientists.

          • Nick

            Sharon,
            Climate change is happening like it has happened thousands of times before throughout earth’s history!!! The debate is whether it’s manmade or not. Most obviously it’s NOT! So while idiots like you look to big corrupt government to tax us to death to try to solve a problem out of our reach we keep cutting down forests, build massive housing complexes, pollute what water we do have left, encourage fracking, destroy our top soil with monoculture farming etc. There are bigger problems that we can actually control as humans we should be focusing on and spending money on. The climate is going to keep on changing and there is nothing humanity can do except adapt like we always have. And yes people in CA might have to give up their MCMansion crapshack and move to where it’s colder and more water.

          • ruser

            While we all fight about whether climate change (which is equaling drought) is man made or a natural cycle, it continues to persist here in California. I bet if we agreed to disagree on the cause, we could all work together to come up with some ideas on how to deal with this disaster. It’s time to stop beating a dead horse about the cause, and get started on solutions, even if one solution involves involves evacuation.

          • ruser

            Desalination, relocation, protections for our elderly, disabled, and young children. A voucher program that gives water credits to those who conserve, shut down all golf courses not actively planting drought resistant turf, stop using leaf blowers (leaves hold in moisture – who cares what it looks like), stop building more housing (for now), vouchers and programs for water conserving appliances, mandatory low flush toilets for everybody, the list goes on and on.

          • Blank Reg

            How about they stop growing rice and cashews, two of the most water intensive crops around?

          • iTRU7H

            how about turn to God? Remember a couple of years ago when i think it was the state of Alabama was in severe drought the governor turned to prayer and guess what, it rained, and rained a lot. drought over.

            God is real, find out for yourself.:)

          • Blank Reg

            I’d rather turn to graphene, as it is one of the best water purifiers ever. Stick a huge pipe in the ocean, pump the water through a bunch of graphene filters, presto, clean water out the other end. Your invisible friend mocks you.

            You mean the same god who you people think flooded the earth and killed everyone but one family? Yeah, that’s a logical position. Hey, god is allowing the earth to be destroyed, so pray to a capricious destructive bronze age deity and MAYBE he’ll stop!

          • millard fillmore

            I’m amazed that more work hasn’t been done on cheaper methods of desalinization.California has a long coastline,and countries that we’ve helped protect like Saudi Arabia use desalinization for most of their ‘new’ water sources.Remember,too,that water isn’t going away.Once it’s used,it has to go somewhere,and it does.So since California won’t do what makes the most sense due to entrenched enviro-wackadoodalism,the choice is to go where the water actually is.

            Hey genius. If it was warmer in the past than today and colder in the past than today without a penny of carbon taxes changing hands, maybe the whole thing is a scam to tax people into poverty. The public is intelligent enough to see this.

            Reduce the world’s population — voluntarily — over time — by several billions.

            IF MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL, population reduction will have a real effect over time. Perhaps over a very long time, but it will !

            JB, do you like to feel Jesus inside you? Get down on your knees for Jesus, he looks kinda hot on that cross right?

          • iTRU7H

            why so much anger towards jesus? how can one hate something/someone that, according to them, doesn’t exist?

            it truly does seem that atheists are more or less angry and fight God rather than simply not believing in Him.

            Like, i am a christian and i believe that one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and i do believe that He is the way the truth and the life and that no one will get to the Father but by Him, but i do not hate you or say horrible things to you… if anything ill pray for you, which i hope you do not find condescending for me to say because, as I’m sure your aware, thats a sign of care and love as according to my beliefs.

            Thank you.

            Why would I fight OR believe in something that does not exist? If we all insisted that Santa existed and constantly insisted that you MUST believe in him and brought it into EVERY conversation, would you be ‘angry’ for telling us we are delusional? Seriously, you people are delusional, then expect everyone else to be delusional. It’s so ridiculous.

            Percentage of CO2 in our atmosphere is 0.03%. Didn’t Gore say the polar ice caps would be gone by now. But they are now larger. That’s the problem with deception, you are not aware that you are deceived.

          • Orange Jean

            Well, this “moron” (I believe man-made climate change is a fraud) is a member of MENSA, an organization that requires testing to prove you have an IQ of at least 160 (which counts as genius). My IQ is 160, just squeeked in… but is 20 points higher than that self proclaimed “genius” you are so fond of, Obama… who says his IQ is 140.

            I also have an MS in an earth science (geography, with specialty in natural hazards).

            So… for the record. Yes the climate is changing a bit. Doesn’t mean those changes were man-made. And as to the “rest of the world’s scientists”… that oft quoted 97% is not based on any survey of all scientists, nor is it based on all meteorologists or climatologists. It is a percentage calculated by a grad student who did a literature search looking for “man-made climate change” papers, which he reviewed and himself decided whether or not each author agreed with him.

            Which doesn’t mean they did either… my understanding is that a number of those authors wrote back and complained that the guy didn’t understand their paper and they disagreed with him!

            Myself, I’ll start looking seriously at the man-made climate change folks assumptions carefully when I see them stop buzzing around the world in their privately owned jets (very high “carbon footprint”). What I would love to see them push instead was a law prohibiting any profiteering from those who vote for any laws in this country related to climate. As to NASA? They have been focused on getting “more Muslims into space”… don’t think they really have their eye on the ball. And NOAA just follows the lead of the “Commander in Chief.”

            In the meantime, I’ll continue to read up on sun spot activity and what else is actually going on in the world and beyond which can influence both our weather (short term) and climate (long term climate patterns).

            Even Boston (bastion of liberalism)… has declared recently broke the record for the most snow in history from the 1800s… long before there were cars.

          • John

            I am a scientist and I do not see significant evidence of anthropomorphic climate change on a global scale. Yes, at the microscale such as when the Russians drained the Aral Sea, but not at a global scale. The climate varies continuously. All of the climatic events happening today have happened in the past.

          • iTRU7H

            climates have always been changing, whats interesting is the fact that if its such a settled science then why are so many scientists claiming otherwise, even in the face of being defunded or blacklisted and mocked… they lie to you with there settled science…

            also, anyone find it amazing how good God is? historical norms show that southwest america is usually bone-dry but for the small amount of time our nation turned to Him, it wasn’t, then we turn our backs and the blessings are over. and before you mock me which I’m actually totally okay with(this isn’t for me but for you and others that aren’t sure or don’t really know) look up some of the promises of God(i.e. concerning israel and those who bless israel will be blessed and those who curse israel will be cursed) and see how that that promise of God still stands today. look at the facts collectively and there is no way to refute. Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior of all man kind, and because he loves you so much, he gave you free will so you can make your own choice! :) but the evidence is there if one were so inclined as to look it up for themselves and not just regurgitate what some deceiver said

            Great reasoning, Sharon.

You obviously have no real arguments, or you would have shot him down with science. Instead you call him names! Great scientific retort!

          • daniel reich

            Wrong..the rate at which the climate is changing is many times faster than any other point in earth’s history. Not a natural change but a very abrubt one caused by changes in the chemical structure of the atmosphere. We are pumping carbon into the habitat at ever increasing rates, year after year. Don’t be deliberately obtuse.

          • krinks

            Sorry but what you’ve said is a bold faced lie. As the co-founded of Greenpeace said rising carbon is not an enemy and it isn’t man made. Today’s levels are a fraction of what they were in the past. Carbon is plant food and man kind does well when carbon is higher.

          • daniel reich

            Bold faced lie? Is the co-founder of Greenpeace a climate scientist? You are burying your head in the sand. The only time in earth’s history when atmospheric co2 levels were higher than they are today was around 800,000 -15,000,000 years ago. We weren’t here yet. I don’t think you would like that particular climate either.We actually could “GO VENUS”. Why don’t you check the surface temps there.Move there for all I care. The truth is, you and all the other climate deniers have won! Nothing is going to stop the onslaught coming our way. It’s too late.There are already more than 30 positive feedback loops, all of which are more than enough to seal our fate. It’s baked into the cake. Happy? I’m not.

          • krinks

            These “Climate Changers” never even stop to think about what controls our temperature and they don’t have the thermostat. The sun is not a constant temperature. What happens if these “CC’s” succeed in cooling the earth and then the sun cools as well? Hmmm? What idiots.

        • John Byde

          And your proof? It’s nearly all to do with California’s appalling system of water management. And I also think that the place is suffering because it has been the seedbed for so many disastrous social experiments – no fault divorce, homosexual “marriage” etc.

          • mister_roboto

            If the place only has a year of spare water remaining, I can believe its management system for this important resource is seriously lacking. And if California is karmically suffering for anything, it’s rather more likely to be its money- and status-worshiping collective mindset than its legal recognition of homosexual relationships and not forcing people to stay in loveless and draining domestic situations.

          • John Byde

            If California is kamically suffering…

            Why not from all these factors? Both sides of the political spectrum in CA have done awful things. Hollywood and homosexuality, divorce and dollars.

            GV, resorting to personal abuse usually means you’ve lost the argument. Using euphemisms such as “marriage equality” usually hides great evils. As for those other states, California is just the forerunner of what they will soon be facing. A society can only stand a certain amount of insanity before it starts to fall apart. Best regards.

          • Gay Veteran

            “try thinking for once” = personal abuse?

            well I certainly understand why YOU would think it is abuse.

            your type when on the witness stand could NOT answer the question of what harm marriage equality would cause.

            and fortunately your type is ending up on the dung heap of history.

          • John Byde

            Hi GV, I have to say that I don’t find your attitude very tolerant. I hope too that I’m not resorting to personal abuse when I say that you seem to have deep anger issues in what should just be a polite difference of opinion. It’s also sad you have to resort to stereotyping – what is “my type” exactly? As for who ends up on the dung heap of history, well, it’s often not who you’d expect. Ultimately, we all end up on that rather smelly pile, so perhaps we should be a bit more charitable to each other on the journey. Regards

            GV, now you’re just being silly. I’m sure you are too intelligent to believe what you just wrote. In the meantime, here is a useful quote to mull over from Micheal Glatze, an ex homosexual. “Homosexuality is a cage in which you are trapped in a cage endlessly wanting more…constantly full of emptiness, trying to justify your twisted actions by politics and feel good language.” Food for thought there who isn’t a “christian bigot” but knows the system from the inside. Good luck with your demons, bro!

            I’m sure Micheal Glatze is now an ex-ex homosexual.

          • Gay Veteran

            like I said, you’ll end up on the dung heap of history:

            NEW YORK (AP) — The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has expanded its definition of marriage to include a “commitment between two people,” recognizing gay marriage as Christian in the church constitution after decades of debate over same-sex relationships….”

            but I guess the Presbyterians aren’t a real “Christian” like you are

            best regards

          • John Byde

            Wow, that anger again! Could you harness it to the local power system? It would end CA’s energy problems over night :) On a more serious note, GV, you seem to have a very intolerant view of christians. If that’s because certain christians have personally given you a bad time, then they were wrong and Jesus would have been against them. However, it doesn’t change the reality. Jesus loves homosexuals as he does everyone else. HOwever, he hates sin, and wriggle as many might, the teachings of Jesus and his followers are crystal clear about sin – whether homosexual acts, fornication or whatever. Right and wrong isn’t a numbers game, either, 99.99999% of Americans supporting homosexual “marriage” won’t make it right. I think the underlying issue here is why so many homosexuals have such deeply unsatisfying lives and why enough is never enough for them. I speak from personal knowledge of many friends and acquaintance with SSA – beneath the “gay lifestyle”, they don’t seem very gay at all. I hope you find the peace you are so obviously seeking. Best regards

          • Gay Veteran

            “Wow, that anger again! Could you harness it to the local power system?….”

            “..On a more serious note, GV, you seem to have a very intolerant view of christians….”

            the only time I have a problem with Christians is when they want to use the state to harm me, otherwise I simply do not care what you think or say

            “…I think the underlying issue here is why so many homosexuals have such deeply unsatisfying lives and why enough is never enough for them….”

            hmmmmm, maybe because they have to deal with the BS from bigots

            Hi, Nunyer. Abuse isn’t evidence. You also sound very angry. Why not come back at us with reasoned arguments that may gain you our respect even if we don’t agree with them? The abuse just makes you seem as though you lack confidence in your beliefs. In peace.

          • Nunyer Business

            Abuse isn’t evidence? And I ‘sound angry’ and seem to ‘lack confidence’? Huh? What bizarre statements. I didn’t TRY to provide any evidence of ANYTHING. I was rebutting the absolutely bizarre statement of YOURS that divorce is probably causing the problems in California, but you come back and tell me that I need a ‘well-reasoned argument’ to ‘get respect’? From a guy claiming that DIVORCE causes drought! You are even more bizarre and idiotic than I originally believed! Wow. You are a totally whacked out lunatic if you think that you provided a ‘well reasoned’ argument for divorce leading to drought and anyone who points that out must be ‘angry’ and ‘lacks confidence’. You god believers get even more bizarre by the day!

          • John Byde

            Your use of abuse means you lose the argument. Listen and learn!

          • Nunyer Business

            Your idiocy means you lose the argument. You don’t ever ‘win’ by making ridiculous assertions such as ‘divorce causes drought’. Saying you ‘win’ the argument because someone rightly insults you when you make moronic statements makes you
            even more of a moron.

            Imagine a world where morons like you merely agitated scientists with idiocy until they insulted you, then you keep claiming ‘victory’ over scientists because they insulted you.

            You are an idiotic moron. Divorce never leads to drought, and you do not ‘win’ an argument on such grounds ever. This is just a fact, it’s not a matter of someone insulting you for your idiocy. You may find it insulting and call it abuse, but it’s just true. You are an idiot who makes up fantastic arguments based on nothing. Listen and learn.

          • Nunyer Business

            Hell, you don’t even know the difference between an assertion and a rebuttal! You are just THAT stupid. Stop it. Go get an education, learn science, reason and logic, and stop reading myths and pretending they are true.

But if you think it’s as easy as dumping the brine back into the ocean you’re a real moron. Don’t hate CA, you can of course hate the people. CA is a beautiful state geographically so it would be tragic to ruin marine ecosystems to save suburbia! That’s not hippie greenie talk that’s common sense. Yiu’re probably similar to the idiot farmers in southern western MN who’ve made entire river and lake ecosystems uninhabitable and water unsafe to drink in entire counties because of nitrates. We have future generations to think about and already we are forcing them to clean up our environmental disasters. What is so ignorant about morons like you is you expect every right leaning conservative to be some planet trashing big business nut job. I believe in environmental conservation as much as fiscal, small business, social, and religious conservation!

    • Pete

      YES, that solution makes ALL the sense in the world. California has to GET THIS DONE. and get it done fast! But it isn’t happening … because our politicians are sitting on their proverbial butts. And WHY are they doing this? Because we have raised a whole generation of politicians in America who are schooled in “crisis management”. These people all believe that they will “gain control” for their ideas when the system gets into a crisis, and finally they can get their own way. So they are not trying to solve any problems. They are allowing major problems to HAPPEN, as a way of manipulating power and votes.
      And there are only two words to describe this.
      PATHETIC LEADERSHIP.
      And these words are non-partisan. The problem applies across the political spectrum.

    • Alex

      The quality of water they produce is very questionable and the process itself is quite expensive.

  • Lutz

    Cali has desalination plants they’re not even using yet. Israel gets 20% of it’s freshwater from converted sea water. If there is a crisis it’s still an energy crisis.

    • anotherhuman

      There’s an energy crisis? Where? Have you not seen the prices of natural gas and crude oil lately? The US is shutting down fracking operations because we can’t store any more oil!!!! If Cali has an energy crisis, then its their own fault for running in the direction of non-fossil fuel solutions and believing the BS of the “peak oil/peak fossil fuel” crowd.

      • Sam

        How can you not believe in peak oil? How can you not believe something will eventually run out? How can you not believe in pollution? Idiot

        • mister_roboto

          Because recognizing that you can’t have infinite growth on a finite planet would turn too many people’s worldviews hopelessly and completely upside-down. As industrial civilization continues its inevitable spin-down, expect your fellow humans to get more and not less goofy and ignorant.

          The collapse of petroleum prices is a manifestation of the “demand-destruction” phase of peak oil. But don’t waste your breath trying to tell these cornucopians any such thing.

    • SozoedbyChrist

      Why on earth isn’t Cali using it’s already built desalination plants???

  • Bill

    California will have to be depopulated and there’s lots of land in the midwest to move to. Most of the mentioned crops can be and are grown in other states. There’s lots of under utilized land that can be used but people are going to have to live with cold, snowy winters and hot humid summers. California, as a state, is done for.

    • Bill

      Please use another name.

    • David_R59

      The issue here is NOT the land; it’s water.
      Here n the Canadian prairie provinces we have lots of vacant land but the increased population is putting a lot of pressure on the water resources.

    • SunnyFlaSnotress

      “Done for” is a bit harsh, but if things keep up, yes it will need to depopulate some. It’s still a technology center. And especially with oil low, creative ways can be made to bring in water for those who will be willing to pay. Agriculture may hurt for the long-term though.

          • krinks

            The people Californians put in high office shows where their beliefs lie. It shows they have a judgment coming and maybe the drought is it.

            Possibly (the drought part). What’s coming to your neck of the woods? We all deserve hell. It’s by God’s grace through His Son Jesus that any of us will be spared His righteous judgment on the wicked. Even if CA burned to a crisp, the USA would not become a godly nation again.

    Future generations across the globe will view past generations as idiots for running up astronomical amounts of debt, wasting precious resources, and fighting wars that never seem to end.
    How long can a city built in the middle of a desert like Vegas really last? Once the water runs out I reckon the lights will go out in Vegas. When you think about it was very shortsighted to build a city like Vegas.
    Some of the big problems I see is that too many people believe nothing bad will happen, resources will always be plentiful, and the government is actually cares about ordinary citizens.
    Obama plays on this naivety by making absurd comments like the “Shadow of Crisis” has passed.
    The time is now to be proactive to address government corruption, resource depletion, and the shredding of a social fabric that once made America vibrant.

      This is the sanest comment I’ve read in a comment thread that has so far left SMH. I think both liberal and conservative elite-factions are to blame for our encroaching predicament because they invested fully in the cornucopian falsehood that you can have infinite growth on a finite planet.

      You are 100% correct. Future generations of Americans – starting with our own KIDS – will see the current generation as the most SELFISH group of Americans who ever lived. What we have done is to pile up a mountain of debt … because we are living beyond our own means. And our kids are supposed to take on this problem? In addition, we have allowed critical resources such as water to dwindle down to nothing. So by the time our kids take over, they will be facing really MAJOR crises with water, electricity supplies, the prices of farm commodities, and an imploding economy.

I am personally glad that my union (and others like it) is losing its ability to extort taxpayers by simply voting for its own gifts from the treasury. Public sector unions should not exist to bargain for wages and benefits. Fix the money supply and then the people don’t have to grovel for wage increases to keep up with inflation. Fix the medical system and people won’t have to grovel for better healthcare benefits. The only reason public sector unions should exist is to prevent wrongful termination, and the unions need to do a better job of letting underperforming employees go. Mister_roboto be careful what you wish for. California was ruined by the very leftist policies you hope come to Wisconsin.

    This is probably another ginned up environmental crisis.Global warming/cooling is in disrepute so ta da drought in California. However, this self-created crisis is due to state and federal governments manipulating the environment and the marketplace for years. All of the US agriculture is there because of federal subsidy programs. There were farms on the east cost but over the years they have been forced out of business, Also federal and state money built dams to provide water to an uncontrolled urban expansion, Desal is not the answer. Only by ending government subsidies and restoring the marketplace can you hope to end the crisis. Also beware we are only being told one side of this story.

    The drought here in the west is bad and getting worse. This winter was dry dry dry. A buddy of mine who lives at Lake Tahoe remarked to me “Nice summer were having this winter.” Lakes in the west are drying up fast.
    One thing people don’t think about with this drought is power. The west runs on cheap hydroelectric power. But that will soon dry up. Lake mead is projected to quit producing power as soon as 2016 if we don’t get a good winter. Other large power producing lakes like Shasta and Oroville in Calif are going dry fast. No water no power. You cant run a desalinization plant without a lot of power. Most of the large cities in the west depend on cheap hydroelectric power and water from these and other large lakes. Not only will people be hungry and thirsty. They will be in the dark too.
    Las Vegas, which gets power from lake Mead. Is already a hell hole. But just think what it would be like there in the middle of the summer without air conditioning, or refrigeration.
    Maybe they can just cover the land with more wind mills and solar power plants. But even so I think Blackouts and brownouts will soon be the norm in the west. Power will be expensive and in short supply. Unless you have the means to go solar/wind.
    I used to joke about the idea of going off the grid with solar and wind. But now it is looking to be a pretty good idea.

      E Clampus Vitis my friend…I live in N Ca, We call it the State of Jefferson. Yes it’s been a limp winter, but we actually have more water this year than last in Shasta lake.

This is pretty much the worst case scenario.

    This is NOT global warming nor is it climate change. California is reverting back to what it was in the past. We probably could have prevented much of this but the golf courses must have their thick lush greens and we want lush green lawns and tropical plants that require tons of water. People need to grow plants that are indigenous to the area. An example is the prarie grass grows in the states I have lived in, OK and TX. It is drought resistant. I remember when that covered our back yard. We did not have to give it much water and if we were having a drought, it would live through it until the next rain. It wasn’t as pretty as St. Augustine grass but it required less water, much less. Plant a tree with a plastic pipe to the roots. Then you can water deep without evaporation. There are lots of ways to conserve our water. We waste to much.

    I am no farmer. Neither are most of my neighbors very good at it. My next door neighbor is. He makes his living taking care of hospital grounds and landscaping the grounds and keeping them up.
    I suggest that they go looking for underground water supplies channeled out of Canada and reaching all the way to Mexico and beyond.
    These arteries are to be found anywhere from 400 feet below ground level to at least 1,000 feet.
    Some of which is going to be sea water.
    There is also the problem of heat. The lower into the ground you go the hotter it gets.
    In light of the volcanic activity of the entire area, I figure 1,000 feet might even be too hot to handle.
    I think new technology is needed to explore where the water is and how to get to it when we find it.
    These machines that may move underground providing tunnels in their wake are not cheap. Along the way we may win a lottery and get enormous sources of vital metals in the ground.
    This is a brand new field based on mining that has gone on for a long time. But how much is it worth to continue being able to harvest fruits and vegetables like they have done for a long time.
    The biggest waste of water has to be a competition between the old fashioned washing machine and the toilet.
    There is plenty of water. What is missing? Most of it has to be sanitized and filtered.
    A lot of people will believe that the lifestyle of Californians may be to blame for their current drought problem. I think it is more circumstantial than that. I think too many politicians kicking the can down the road until it gets to the point where there is nothing left but dust storms.
    Until we address the problem of water, the politicians and lawyers rule.

    This does not matter. Scrap this story, then rewrite it as an emerging crisis story next year after their water runs out. Then it will be time to deal with it and come up with solutions. Once the water runs out, we can chair a blue ribbon emergency drought council to spitball solutions.

    Once they’ve had time to review public comments and examine the myriad enviornmental concerns and federal regulations, they can begin the tough process of researching potential solutions that are racially, sexually, class, ethnically, and socially conscious and diverse, yet uniquely crafted to meet Californians’ needs. It will create jobs! It will be multi-cultural/multi-sexual/multi-lingual, fair, and equitable! We hope to have a potential solution within 5-10 years, federal funds permitting, and we can then permit public comments and additional review before implementation.

    Personally, I think we need to ensure none of the wealthy planter class gets more water allocated than any of their urban or suburban fellow citizens. It would be unjust for anyone to receive rights to more water than their economically disadvantaged urban neighbors. Only with equality and fairness will we defeat this terrible monster of water scarcity!

    I have lived in California for 31 years. I have never seen the lakes as low as they are now. From an environmental viewpoint, it’s an absolute tragedy. and YES, the CA farm economy is vital to the country. There is only one solution – desalination. This means that there will be a dramatic increase in the prices for fresh water, OR the state will have to subsidize the water supply for farmers. Probably some combination of both. BUT the essential thing is this. The California legislature is stuck in GRIDLOCK. The national folks in Washington DC are NO BETTER. This country needs major new innovations for our infrastructure, our water, and our transportation. And they are not happening. THAT is the problem!

      Sunny, you are right the US is a big country able, without a shadow of a doubt, to grow those same product elsewhere. But it is also a country with big problems on the environmental sides (not speaking about Climate change here).

      What I mean is that in the article above California is just one case scenario, but the water problem is true in other states as well. Texas is one other with water depletion. But we could, as well, mention the states in which the dust bowl is back (imply by drought).

      The water tables in the US are dangerously low nearly everywhere, and at the rate water is used nowadays, the US are bound for a major human and environmental disaster in the near years (Not even including economic or political impact through high demand on food).

    When California runs out of water, as well as everyone In Arizona since the Hoover Damn only has enough water for only 3 more years, they are going to move Oregon and Washington causing over population and even more water shortages here. It’s crazy. They need to institute a recycled waste plant that turns waste water into purified drinking water. I know that sounds so gross, but we are all drinking recycled water anyway in every glass of water we drink and bathe in. If we could recycle what comes out of our bodies, it will be more sustainable than they system they have now. Besides, the recycled waste water will be more purified than water from the tap or just as purified. That’s a last resort that should start soon because its too late to conserve the water they have left.

    Drought is One of God’s judgment on an evil, unrepentant people. Ca is like Sodom & Gomorrah, we all know what happened to that city. It’s time for People to wake up repent & change course before it’s too late. I believe God is calling his people to leave Ca. Come out from the evil!

      The opening track of the 1980 classic Steely Dan album, ‘Gaucho’ was a tune titled ‘Babylon Sisters.’ The title siblings referred allegedly to the cities of Los Angeles (City of the Angels – some say of the fallen variety) and San Francisco, forever associated with Sodom for any number of reasons (okay, one specifically.)

      Not sure if Drought is one of God’s punishments or not, but the arid and skeletal remains of the once glorious Golden State are the result of greedy and completely corrupt individuals (cough-pelosi…) and the network of courts and other institutions that have been compromised to maintain that dusty status quo.

    Cell towers along the northern California coast are likely being used to create an artificial front that deflects weather bearing precipitation. They must either be taken down or their power input restricted to a few hundred watts, not the thousands of watts sent through the US Corps of Engineers lines. That’s the amount of energy to direct the HAARP energy being generated in Alaska and deployed to disrupt normal weather systems.

    Michael, you are right that most people hate Californians and are happy to hear about the demise of this once great state. They actually cheer for our destruction when the fact of the matter is that if California goes down a lot of people will suffer. Like you said the rest of the nation is dependant on the food supply chain whether they like it or not. I am always astounded by the hate that people spew on Californians, we are not ALL the same. There are a lot of liberty lovers here too sure. It wasn’t always like this, I reminiss of the days when it was growing up here. We were all the same…all brothers and sisters in Christ.

  • AzDi

    I heard a suggestion on the radio the other day…… how about a pipeline from Canada or Alaska? Oh, well, probably Obama would have to study it for 15 years. Sounds like a good idea to me.

    The real problem is that CA, (just like our Federal Gov) has known about this for how many years? And still don’t have a contingency plan? That is what is wrong with big government who can’t seem to do anything right. They are too busy doing stupid stuff.

  • NowAlive

    Michael, why so negative? Look at the positive. There is an entire ocean next to California. All they need to do is start cleaning the salt from it and using it. With all of the radiation pouring from Japan, the crops will quickly mutate and adapt. I can see the commercials now, “Get your CA produce and get your daily dose of vitamin gamma!” Who wants to live to 30 anyways, right? [ok, I’m kidding]

  • Brian

    They’ve been using HAARP to sustain the pressure ridge that creates the drought because it will cause a food shortage. They attacked the Gulf fisheries, the entire North Pacific and now California. Control the food, control the people. Small farmers go bust, people squeezed into dependency on agro. Short leash on the folk. Fukushima was sabotage, read up on the Dimona Dozen. Make it illegal “hoarding” to keep supplies adequate for a month. Or a day. Outlaw more than 2 cookies. Bad folk! Good government.

  • Defiant

    In case nobody has noticed…California doesn’t really “do” contingency plans. They just pick the most liberal rout and fiddle like the grasshopper while the rest of us ants work to find a way to help them not destroy themselves…or the rest of us.

  • guest

    Those statistics about all the produce grown in California are suspect. It doesn’t have to be. I live in the Midwest and I have a garden. We can grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, potatoes, strawberries, melons, squash, corn, etc. With a green house much of it could be grown year around. Instead we are wasting billions of taxpayer dollars growing subsidized corn to pump into our gas tanks.
    As for the drought I can’t help but wonder. People will buy into the idea that their suv is melting the polar ice cap but will exhibit the usual knee jerk conditioned response of conspiracy theory accusations at the mere mention of suspicion that the government might be manipulating the weather. I’ve seen those checkerboard patterns cut into the sky by jet contrails. I’ve read the official documents released by the U. S. military touting the need to “own the weather “. I’ve also read the reports that ionospheric heaters like project HAARP can raise 100 square mile sections of the ionosphere several miles. Perhaps this is all just innocent scientific research but I doubt it. Stalin and Mao both engineered famines that killed millions. Our government tried to inflict disease on the Cuban sugar cane crop. How much better are we at it today?

    • RageHard84

      I could understand your questioning of how much California contributes to national produce, but how exactly could the government control the weather? As for Stalin and Mao causing famines that killed millions, there’s not much incentive to work in the Communist system, and agriculture takes more than just the right weather conditions – there is work to be done.

      • guest

        “… How exactly could the government control the weather? “… How did the government cause several inches of increased annual rain fall over the Ho Chi Minh Trail? How did the government turn hundreds of square miles of jungle cover into green mush? I suspect they’re spending millions on research to find out. Again, that isn’t an accusation against the government it’s an admission by the government. The documentation from the government is there. You just have to read it. The famines caused by Mao and Stalin were very real and not simply the result of laziness or lack of incentive. There are still people alive in the Ukraine and China who remember.

        • RageHard84

          I can’t really find anything on the US government increasing rainfall over Ho Chi Minh Trail in Vietnam War. I’m not sure all the details on jungle being turned to green mush, but I know our government applied herbicides like Agent Orange. Mao’s famine did not involve weather, part of th’issue was the government misdistributing food, as in Communism the government redistributes resources.
          As for Stalin’s famine, it was not weather but again the fact that Communism is a fail.

          • guest

            ??? Couldn’t find anything???…Do you know how to use a search engine? After reading your response I entered ” did the U. S. increase rainfall over the Ho Chi Minh Trail “.I received hundreds of hits. If you had looked you would have found reference to an official U.S. Air Force document titled “Weather as a Force Multiplier. Owning the Weather in 2025″. Go to Global Research and find “Weather War ? ” . Go to Washington Blog and find “Humans Have Intentionally Modified weather for Military Purposes and Climate Control for Decades ”
            published 1/5/2011. There are hundreds more. Also I never said or implied that the Ukrainian famine that killed millions in the 1920’s was due to weather. I said it was deliberately caused. All of the Soviet Union lived under communism. Only in the Ukraine were millions starved to death.

          • guest

            You might also have found that after syndicated columnist Jack Anderson revealed the weather modification scheme in 1971 the United Nations passed a resolution in response banning attempts to manipulate weather for military purposes.

          • RageHard84

            I searched for “government increase rainfall ho chi minh city”, the results were not very relevant. Now, with what you told me to search for, I found stuff on cloud seeding, which can be used to increase precipitation or create colder precipitiation.
            I guess it was a misinterpretation on my part to think you meant that the famine was involved by government controlling the weather. To say it was deliberately caused is not too hard to believe, given government control over resources and the like.

  • http://www.JPAttitude.com/ J.P. Travis

    The notion that the world is running out of water is just silly. The amount of water doesn’t change and there’s plenty. California’s problem is a lack of common sense and misplaced priorities. Their problems started when they began diverting water for the stupid delta smelt without any evidence that the delta smelt would actually benefit from the diversion. So billions of gallons have been flushed down the Sacramento River for a little fish, while millions of humans and thousands of farms go dry. This isn’t about a lack of water, it’s about stupidity. The dry winter is simply exacerbating a problem caused by stupid political decisions.

    Production of vegetables stated can be grown elsewhere in the United States. We can live without Plums so no huge loss. This would probably just spark economic growth in other areas of the US.
