Water Water Everywhere But Not A Drop To Drink




California’s Water Woes

In water year 2019, which spanned from Oct. 1, 2018 to Sept. 30, 2019, an amount of water equal to a year’s supply for 275 million people flowed under the Golden Gate Bridge and out to the Pacific Ocean. Rather than acting to build new, major, reservoir storage to capture all we can when Mother Nature brings us bountiful water for free, California continuously obstructs, and has even used the courts to block putting dam shovels in the ground. In fact, lawmakers recently enacted their own expensive and ineffective solution instead.

What is the real story behind California’s 55 gallons of water per day, per person? California Globe recently summarized some of the state Legislature’s most unforgettable moments in 2019, including some water laws.
California voters have approved more than $30 Billion in Water Bonds which has provided no new water storage, and water rationing on the horizon

  1. Not quite, but in the ballpark. I've lived here my whole life, and I don't recognize this place from 50 to 70 years ago. It breaks my heart.

  3. Maybe you can buy water from Arizona. We always seem to have enough even though it's mainly desert.

  4. Add this to the rabid socialism, high taxes, sanctuary cities, homeless encampments, poop & needle covered streets, it's almost like California Democrats WANT to turn their state into a third world country.

  5. There's a very good clip on YouTube from early 60s where Pat Brown is describing California population growth projections and the associated infrastructure and water needs, and the plan for how they'd build it all. If the loony green movement hadn't interfered CA would have all the water they need stored. Well worth the watch but oh so frustrating.

  6. LL, we worry about fish instead of people. If we send the illegals back we could all have 110 gallons a day.

  7. Alligator, everytime I see one of these new overreaching laws I wonder what the fuck is their end game. I think you're right ... and it's the total destruction of this beautiful state.

  8. Deadcenter, I've seen it, and I've also lived it. Liberalism is like a cancer that needs to be wiped out.

  9. I live a bit upstream fro CA and it's water problems. I go up the hill and watch the water flow down the Colorado river in the springtime as the snow melts off. on the roaring fork river, we listen to the brook trout jump for the low hanging flies over the streams. All very nice. some of the finest fishing is downstream from the dams as the habitat is not destroyed each spring by flooding.
    CA demands more and more water from upstream. yet they do not capture what they let flow out to sea.
    Money is being made by some one down there. find out who.

  10. At every turn California appears to be on an aggressive intentional suicide path. I can't say I understand it.

Put it here ... I can't wait to read it. I have the Captcha turned OFF but blogger insists it be there. You should be able to bypass it.
