California’s Big Water Plans; The End of Private Water Rights?

by Jamie Lee, Activist Post:

Drought-stricken California, which just had its driest January ever recorded, smashed another dismal record last month: the hottest February. This will be the 5th year in a row of historic drought in California, breaking a 120-year-old record.

California is the largest populated state in the country. One out of eight Americans reside in sunny, warming, no rain, CA. Our economy is recognized as the 8th largest in the world with Central Valley farmers producing some 42% of the nations food supplies for decades.

For the second year in a row the Federal Water Agency, which controls CA mountain snowpack runoff, announced that zero water would be allocated to the 3300 state water agencies that it has supplied water to from the Sierra Nevada Mountain ranges for the past 54 years.

    Its really amazing and mind boggling that the California govt is moving forward with the high speed rail system when in reality we need a water pipeline.

    Without water, there will be no population and there will be no food to supply the states back east that rely on California produce

    It was ridiculous the amount of housing they allowed in the 90’s to today…did the govt actually think they had enough water for the houses they let build?

    I guess as long as it doesnt happen on their shift, they didnt care.
