    Drought apocalypse begins in California as wells run dry

    (NaturalNews) Water wells in central California have begun to run dry, reports the LA Times. (1) "Extreme drought conditions have become so harsh for the Central Valley community of East Porterville [that] many of its residents dependent on their own wells have run out of water."

    Tulare County has confirmed their wells have run out of water, and so far hundreds of homes have no running water.

    According to the LA Times, rumors are also spreading that Child Protective Services officials will begin taking children away from families who have no running water, although the county claims the rumor is false.

      We have a water bond on the ballot which will help a little, but really at this point they need to invest more in desalinization even though it is quite expensive. There is a plant coming up in SD but they need several more.

        There are countless cities in the SoCal region where at least half of the water consumed by residential customers on a monthly basis is used for landscaping.

        Isn't it about time to switch to artificial turf or something?

          You would think we would know how to create rain storms by now. That is what 50% of scientists should be working on. Just like PacMan Jones they need to learn how to "Make it Rain."

            We have an El Nino winter coming just in time. Which is often what happens. Went sportfishing recently and the signs are there for a medium sized El Nino which should give us quite a bit of rainfall and snow this winter.

                  Water, water, everywhere,
                  Nor any drop to drink.”

                    Here is a pretty great article on what it would take to make water.

                    Seems smashing hydrogen and oxygen together to make water is very dangerous and could explode.

                        You watch reservoirs will be cracking open in the winter after they fill up. I have faith in the El Nino and the weather patterns. Like i said my friends tell me they are seeing wahoo in san diego.

                          Desalination is a joke when it comes to how much is costs. I think we have one coming online south of Long Beach in OC somewhere. But the cost of water is like 10 times regular.

                              The solution is to bring in more illegal aliens.
