On May 31, 2016 Drought Monitor reported that 84% of the State of California was in drought, compared to 97% two months earlier. Areas of the once Golden State experiencing exceptional drought (ED-4) had “fallen from 46% to 21% since October of 2015.” But that doesn’t necessarily mean that things are getting better. This drought has been in progress since 2011, right around the same time Fukushima began spewing nuclear waste onto California shores. Combine these two environmental catastrophes with government mandated water regulation, increased crime, high tax rates, methane well leaks, explosive fire conditions and the potential for the “big one.” If California was a movie, those five million folks who packed up and left in the last decade were saying, “That’s a wrap.”
As families and business leave for greener pastures and fewer taxes, who will buy their homes, or rent their office spaces? As Mike Adams reported in 2014, “. . . the value of a home that has no running water and likelihood of ever receiving running water is very close to zero.” Many readers may remember that historical phrase, “There’s gold in them thar hills!” But the shiny metal dreams that triggered the westward move a century ago cannot quench one’s thirst nor water one’s crops. The Golden State is no longer golden. While there may be pockets of fertility, the color associated with California is now a dusty, reddish cracked and broken brown.
There’s a lot of blame going around. Natural hydrologic cycles. Geo engineering. Unrestrained growth. Government Idiocy. On that note, Americanthinker.com informs us that “California allows one third of its system water to escape to the ocean to protect fish.” You read that right. And then there’s the globalist mantra about how it’s all man’s fault cause he exhales carbon. But that’s another story.
