Watch “California’s Water Wars” on YouTube

Some parts of the US will have to get used to restricting their unlimited water usage … use a resource without a long-term consumption and preservation strategy and this is the result.

  1. The three things that strike me are:
    1. Where you sprinkle water you also plant – that lake was a dustbowl and could suppirt vegetation
    2) what an immense cock up over the lake – it was a short term fix and not thought through properly
    3) the wells being dug ever deeper are simply depleting the groundwater table in the long run which will never fill up to its previous levels given the changing climate. California can no longer continue to support the huge agri-business that consumes vast amounts of water. Diversification is required.
