  • California will be out of water in 1 year

    According to a NASA scientist who has been using satellites to determine the amount of water in CA. Their drought has been bad but back up supplies are running low and ground water is also running low.

      Good thing I loaded up on strawberry seeds. I'll miss avacado though. Time to get some gardens kicking.

        It is being refuted by others. It is a damn problem and wish we can take some of that snow from MASS and send it over here. I am waiting for our Governor to start demanding pools need to be drained, water down to 1 or 2 days and showers every other day.

          I did over 35 tomato plants last year. I might need to start cranking it up.

          Lettuces and greens are easier to handle all year. But this is going to jack food prices.

          I should also get more mushroom beds going to help as a protein substitute.

            They are already putting in small restrictions in LA. watering lawns, asking for water at restaurants, etc. agricultural uses the vast majority of it though

              Yep, restrictions are being put into place.

              The problem is the groundwater extraction law came way way way too late so there was too much being sucked out before. If we don't get the snowpack, construction of desalinization plants is really the only other way, which is not ideal and expensive but at some point we won't be left with other choices.

              The water bond last year was a small, incremental thing and isn't going to create an immediate impact, but will help a little bit down the road.

                It's ok. We can just fill buckets from a magical stream of endless water just blocks away from me.

                  Our mountains in Oregon are a 6 percent snow fall for the year. This is becoming a real problem

                        We get blasted by 2 disasters. The drought and water politics. From the mess of the San Clemente dam removal to the bickering of desalination, it's not pretty.

                          Don't worry there are plans in place to build a long pipeline..... oh wait it's for oil.

                          ... carry on.
