This can't possibly be true. Cutlet told us the el nino and a couple hard rains had cleared the entire problem, and everything was ship shape.

Clearly, this is just more liberal scare mongering.

Reducing almond production would solve most of the problem.

You got 138 golf courses in just one California county each using one million gallons of water a day and your solution is plow under the almond trees. Good thinking Richard junior.

"The thing is, nuts use a whole lot of water: it takes about a gallon of water to grow one almond, and nearly five gallons to produce a walnut. Residents across the state are being told to take shorter showers and stop watering their lawns, but the acreage devoted to the state's almond orchards have doubled in the past decade. The amount of water that California uses annually to produce almond exports would provide water for all Los Angeles homes and businesses for almost three years."

As far as the ****y comment. People are people and we need to start caring for one and another again. That is what made Merica so great to begin with.
The way I see this is that people are people, so why should it be that you and I should get along so awfully?

Maybe they should stop passing liberal legislation to stop protecting smelt and build some reservoirs like everyone else. Typical California... Create a problem through bad laws then regulate everything as it fails.

And when the drought continues, and those reservoirs are drained, then what? Seems pretty logical to me that if the existing fracking wells are using more then 2 major cities combined in a year (and more wells arrive every day), they should heavily reduce fracking. Why not research other methods to get the gas and oil rather then use up the most precious resource on the planet in order to get it. Or is that too much to ask? Do you not agree that water is more vital to us then oil is?

Not to be contrarian, but if we are talking about volume of the resource, oil is far more precious than water. Just sayin.

Go sit in the desert sun for three days with a glass of water and a glass of crude oil and tell me which one you value higher.

Nobody is saying oil and gas isn't important. But I think there has to be better methods of getting it without wasting billions of gallons of precious water. Eventually, we'll have alternate methods for fuel. Oil in the future will be replaced with something more advanced. Water will never be replaced. Our lives depend on it, along with a billion other living things on the planet.

My point is, don't be so quick to think there's an endless supply of fresh water that we can just waste. But I'll also say that we can do a better job with water management and the way we use it in many different areas, not just cutting supplies to the fracking industry.

If everyone in California switched to composting toilets and stopped using precious water to float their turds down hill there would water for everything else.
