California is currently facing mandatory water restrictions as drought grips the state. “Despite a wet start to the water year, conditions have dried out since that first storm and we are still planning for a below-average water year,” Karla Nemeth, director of the Department of Water Resources, said in a statement. “That means we need to prepare now for a dry winter and severe drought conditions to continue through 2022.”


They have major problems,i.e. environmentalists, tree-huggers, and others..thought I read somewhere recently that they were diverting water to the ocean to save some snails or something as stupid..blame Newsome and the rest of the democrats ruining the state...

It's a desert. They ran out of their own water 125 years ago, started stealing water from hundreds of miles around ....all legally done, but underhanded, and corrupt. Sorry, LA is out of water, and has too may people there. I've visited LA a bunch, friends lived there, I had conferences there, and I vacationed there. Lots of fun stuff, and it is interesting to leave a conference in short sleeved shirts and drive a couple of hours and do some night skiing. But LA is out of water. The only really workable solution is desalination, which can be solar powered low tech or complex, high tech. Either way....they won't be getting any more big infusions of water from anywhere else like they did back in Mulholland's day. And droughts, especially in deserts, can last for many decades.

A liberal solution: keep allowing huge population increases each year, not through organic growth, but by importing people who should be returned to their countries of origin. Cause overcrowding, then blame climate change.

State wide. I had the impression, but may be wrong, that northern California had enough water for the much smaller populations which live there. AFAIK, the coastal big cities overdrew their water supplies a century and a half ago.

They continue to allow millions of gallons to be sent out of the Sacramento Delta into the ocean, they fight any desalinization options, and won't build water pipeline to bring water in from some other parts of the country. The overwhelming largest users of water is agriculture, not residential which is less than 10% of the total usage.

Better solutions: 1) Deport about 10,000,000 illegal aliens. 2) Kill the Bullet Train to Nowhere and use the money to build more dams. 3) Recall all the Democrat politicians and replace them with conservatives.

Maybe if they kept the water instead of sending into the pacific it might help their problem. Also, are these filthy rich loud- mouthed liberals keeping their lavish swimming pools filled to the brim? You bet they are.

I knew the engineer involved with tapping the Colorado River across the desert to a development East of Scottsdale. The Central Arizona Project was a main contributor to the massive business and housing boom of the '80's. IIRC, Cali had dibs on a certain amount of water which limited Az from diverting the amount of water they said they needed. Àrizona spent large dollars to bring in water, in the meantime, Cali spent large dollars building huge concrete gutters to send the rainfall to the Pacific. You can't make up this level of stupid.

In a normal year San Diego County gets 10% of its water from desalination. If the state cuts back then it will be higher than 10%.

Democrats didn't used to be crazy. Pat Brown, Jerry Brown's dad created the state water project. Reservoirs and Aqueducts to collect and distribute water from the north state to agriculture and cities throughout California. Many more reservoirs were planned but cancelled by various lawsuits and action by politicians. Several years ago the state had a "wet year". That year in the Sacramento river basin, 42 million acre feet of water was diverted to the yolo bypass (5 mile wide ditch leading around Sacramento to the Bay) and flowed directly into the ocean via San Francisco bay. That is about six years worth of water for the state water project. Additionally, every summer huge amounts of water (I was told trillions of gallons) are released from the remaining reservoirs to "save the smelt", a small introduced non-native fish that feeds game fish. It is alleged that the environmental law suit that caused the water to be released was initiated by well off bay area fisherman to try to ensure plentiful sport fishing for themselves. The smelt situation hasn't improved, but many small farms have been destroyed. This tragedy seems to confer a great benefit to rich real estate developers. I suspect that the smelt mostly feed the resurgence of thousands of sea lions and many sea otters that now populate the San Francisco bay and that may be the reason for the decline in the smelt population. There isn't really a water shortage, simply a stupidity oversupply among the coastal voters that keep putting the Democrats in power.

For regular readers of this site, today’s news will likely not come as a surprise, but much of the nation seems to remain unaware of it. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has released its latest reliability assessment for the summer of 2022 and, to put it mildly, the news is not good. In far too many states, the power grid is already nearly at full capacity, and in the next few months, that capacity will be exceeded. This isn’t a question of “if” or really even “when.” It’s just a fact. Industry experts know this and have been trying to sound the alarm for several years.

The New York Post reported: The US and its NATO allies should prepare a “devastating” response to potential Russian nuclear action, Sen. Mitt Romney said on Saturday. The call to action comes on the heels of threats from the Kremlin and warnings from Russian diplomats that the country’s Ukraine invasion could lead to a nuclear strike, the Utah Republican wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times.
