#1 Gee, you live in a desert and import literally millions of people and then destroy dams for Gaia.

When you have MILLIONS of people moving to and living in a state that is 3/4's arid and then bust dams and reservoirs to be "Earth Friendly" what do you expect IF you are thinking about future human impact repercussions.

I remember the drought back in 1990'ish where the farm valley crops were left to died due to the irrigation water being funneled to LA and yes swimming pools were filled.

BTW: Here is NOAA's data on this drought and previous cycles.

eg. California has experienced many droughts, such as 1841, 1864, 1924, 1928-1935, 1947-1950, 1959-1960, 1976-1977, 1986-1992, 2006-2010, 2011-2017, 2018 and 2020.

#4 But hey - the Delta Smelt get to make their runs right?

Interrupting a perfectly natural extinction of a species which has become over-specialized is important! See Spotted Owl...

#5 Sort of like Iran (though only half as big.)

We developed a simple process to recycle urine. Here's how it's done

#7 Any Californians trembling with fear aren’t tough enough for the environment. They ought to start working immediately to move to somewhere within their risk tolerances. Connecticut, perhaps, or Vermont.

#8 See Spotted Owl...

iirc, another subspecies has migrated into the area and has or is replacing the Spotted Owl. Nature at work. Doing what man refuses to do.

#10 A webpage to keep an eye on is the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) site here. It shows the total demand for electricity versus the amount supplied by renewables at any given time. Roughly, they've got 14,000 megawatts of what they call "renewables" to serve a peak demand of 40,000 megawatts. And this is before the shutdown of the Diablo Canyon nuke because Gaia doesn't like nukes. Something's got to give.

#11 Haven't built a major damn or reservoir in 40+ years, and haven't limited building permits in any meaningful way statewide since permit fees, sales tax and property taxes are the lifeblood of local and state governments. Nukes and desalination plants to completely solve this would cost less that the stupid high-speed rail project which, incredibly, is being revived by the Bidet morons.
Its like they must choose the wrong answers for every public policy question....

#12 ^-- Actually they choose the policy which promises the most graft. Once you realize this it all makes sense.
See Infrastructure Bill, etc...

In California that is.

Humor me a few lines.

The Earth 1st West Coasters swear up and down the oceans are raising because the poplar ice are melting.

OK build Salt Water Desalination plants up and down the coast. That should slow the water raise on the west coast.

☺ Careful of any Snail darters.☺
