Amongst all the Bizarro events in the world occurring in all facets of our lives today, one of the strangest, and most near a collapse event, is how people in California are NOT dealing with the “Greatest CrISIS in California History”….No Water and No Water Coming.
Each Spring the Federal Water Agency allocates water to Central Valley Farmers, where again, for the 3rd year in a row, they allocated less than 5% of normal water allotments. CA used to provide 42% of a all U.S. food for the country.
Restaurants, still serving water without request, golf courses still open and green, car washes using 1,000 gallons per car wash still keeping ’em shiny, and wineries still sucking while Nestle is being given precious water at little to no cost to turn around and put in plastic, which ends up in the ever grown “Pacific Garbage Patch”, the size of Texas while rich can enjoy water at will and the rest of us get more and more restrictions with higher and higher usage fees.
As you can read in this link here, Jesuit trained Governor, Jerry Brown, has passed legislation to end private well rights to all Californians beginning in 2017 while planning to spend some $400 to 500 BILLION dollars of taxpayer obligated future debt to our children money to dam up the entire CA basin to help PG$E utilities create hydro electric power to run the mass produced battery Google and Apple driver-less cars as well as provide Community centered battery electrical plants to be installed by Tesla.
PG $ E is seeking, and will get, some $40 million dollars in state funding to install 125,000 battery charging stations throughout the state. Privatizing profits, socializing costs.
Meanwhile, the promised SUPER EL NINO ON STEROIDS, so far, has zero rain in the forecast as the Geoengineering of our skies has flipped a switch to drop temperatures, but continue to halt any Winter weather rain off the Pacific Coast from happening in a deliberate action to maintain the 5 year ongoing drought in CA.
While residents of the state go on their merry way, absolutely clueless about what happens to all when the water doesn’t show up…again this year….or next year…or the next.
APPLE VALLEY, Calif. — Outside her two-story tract home in this working-class town, Debbie Alberts, a part-time food service worker, has torn out most of the lawn. She has given up daily showers and cut her family’s water use nearly in half, to just 178 gallons per person each day.
A little more than 100 miles west, a resident of the fashionable Los Angeles hills has been labeled “the Wet Prince of Bel Air” after drinking up more than 30,000 gallons of water each day — the equivalent of 400 toilet flushes each hour with two showers running constantly, with enough water left over to keep the lawn perfectly green.
Only one of them has been fined for excessive water use: Ms. Alberts
Four years into the worst drought in California’s recorded history, the contrast between the strict enforcement on Californians struggling to conserve and the unchecked profligacy in places like Bel Air has unleashed anger and indignation — among both the recipients of the fines, who feel helpless to avoid them, and other Californians who see the biggest water hogs getting off scot-free.
