The Greatest Water Crisis In The History Of The United States

[Ed. Note: One potential solution you’ll only hear about from the alternative news media: PRIMARY WATER]

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

What are we going to do once all the water is gone?  Thanks to the worst drought in more than 1,000 years, the western third of the country is facing the greatest water crisis that the United States has ever seen.  Lake Mead is now the lowest that it has ever been since the Hoover Dam was finished in the 1930s, mandatory water restrictions have already been implemented in the state of California, and there are already widespread reports of people stealing water in some of the worst hit areas.  But this is just the beginning.  Right now, in a desperate attempt to maintain somewhat “normal” levels of activity, water is being pumped out of the ground in the western half of the nation at an absolutely staggering pace.  Once that irreplaceable groundwater is gone, that is when the real crisis will begin.  If this multi-year drought stretches on and becomes the “megadrought” that a lot of scientists are now warning about, life as we know it in much of the country is going to be fundamentally transformed and millions of Americans may be forced to find somewhere else to live.

Simply put, this is not a normal drought.  What the western half of the nation is experiencing right now is highly unusual.  In fact, scientists tell us that California has not seen anything quite like this in at least 1,200 years

Analyzing tree rings that date back to 800 A.D. — a time when Vikings were marauding Europe and the Chinese were inventing gunpowder — there is no three-year period when California’s rainfall has been as low and its temperatures as hot as they have been from 2012 to 2014, the researchers found.

Much of the state of California was once a desert, and much of it is now turning back into a desert.  The same thing can also be said about much of Arizona and much of Nevada.  We never really should have built massive, sprawling cities such as Las Vegas and Phoenix in the middle of the desert.  But the 20th century was the wettest century for western North America in about 1,000 years, and we got lulled into a false sense of security.

At this point, the water level in Lake Mead has hit a brand new record low, and authorities are warning that official water rationing could soon begin for both Arizona and Nevada…

Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the US, has hit its lowest level ever. Feeding California, Nevada and Arizona, it can hold a mind-boggling 35 cubic kilometres of water. But it has been many years since it was at capacity, and the situation is only getting worse.

“We’re only at 38 percent full. Lake Mead hasn’t been this low since we were filling it in the 1930s,” said a spokeswoman for the US Bureau of Reclamation in Las Vegas.

If it gets much lower – and with summer approaching and a dwindling snowpack available to replenish it, that looks likely – official rationing will begin for Arizona and Nevada.

And did you know that the once mighty Colorado River no longer even reaches the ocean?  Over 40 million people depend upon this one river, and because the Colorado is slowly dying an enormous amount of water is being pumped out of the ground in a crazed attempt to carry on with business as usual

    Water restrictions only apply to the sheeple whereas Nestle’s and Walmart can use all the water they want to resell as bottled water. Both Walmart and Nestle’s say they use less water in a day than 2-3 families in a year. You just can’t make this stuff up.

    Documented Chemtrail activity purposely pushing precipitous weather systems north of CA….HAARP, also, albeit intentional or not…Fukushima radiation in ocean and air, only becoming worse day by day…too many people living in a desert to begin with…all giving new meaning to the Mama’s and the Papa’s “California Dreamin'” East Coast should prepare for major migration from west ooast to rival California Gold Rush of 19th Century. Illuminati master plan is to control the water, thus humanity. Their hubris will be their downfall, but unfortunately, ours, too. Prepare for the worse, pray for the best. +

    Anhieser Busch has been pumping the whole state dry for over 20 years with all of the rest of the bev co’s in on the feed. Wells 200 miles away in all directions feeding the brewery on roscoe blvd van nuys and diverted to richmond as/when heeded. I know, i watched the wells and the pipelines go in and joe property owner get his land taken and fenced off for it. Nestle tapped the last of the ca desert some 10 years ago starting in morongo, indian tribes the last to fold and and get in on and show their greed. The ‘tribes’ are being set up as the front man from idaho/montana and all points south now for this last grab and 25 years ago those of us who knew had no doubt water was the next oil.
    People laughed when you told them so no diff than with it all now.
    Ca.ans will either have to stand up or leave and it has been a long time coming with all of them from brown on down nothing but front men for fienstien and the rest since day one.
    Sick fucks and crooks took paradise first and every nook and cranny of america since…
    Corruption has always been on display in Ca. labeled for the kiddies, the make believe minority, and sickest of the sick devients. The land of sheep and freaks for new freaks to be spawned way back to laurel canyon and haight street. When life is good the wool never needs to be lifted from ones eyes is the story I grew up with in ca. and they will get what they deserve for it. Never mind mr big with wallstreet and the rest because now it is all day everywhere from EVERY state house, county office, and greed mill come tax man fee grabber padding his and their pockets 24/7 365 and people are getting tired of being fleeced and treated like fools.
    Ca exodus and national cop exercise right on time…

    I have some “mixed emotions” about the west coast. For decades, the media has sold the “California dream” and now it’s time to wake up.

    Living in a historical desert is not a good idea for sustaining big populations. Yes, I agree there is chem-trail spraying & HAARP systems in MANY places. Governments & business are doing “bad” things to the environment.

    There is ONE (unintentional) GOOD thing about California drying up. It is being spared from a lot of Fukushima rainfall,, all that wet atmosphere is getting dropped on other parts of the country. (Just wish it was all dropped on Washington DC & all the millionaires-billionaires who control and benefit from selling nuclear power.

    Californians, will be forced to migrate to other areas, and this will be another big impact.

    All the farm produce that used to come out of the west coast is toast. Prices going up (again).

    Time for ALL of us people living in wetter climes,, to start growing all the biggest gardens we can do (at least we can save ourselves from going hungry, & we can avoid all the bad chemicals, GMO’s, etc.)
    I still keep some garden chems available for those times when I must use them, but I prefer to be free of them. (but I refuse to starve to death just to be feeding all the local bugs if they get out of hand.)

    If the agenda is depopulation & control, then destroy a nation’s greatest food producer, induce pain & suffering on a grand scale & sheeple will beg for your (gooberment’s) help. Food has always been a weapon.

    Aquaponics is the way of the future. It uses 90% less water than garden/field farming and is organic by default–unless you feed the fish non-organic food. Notice how that’s not being promoted as a solution. When the price of water goes vertical, people will begin to figure it out.

    This drought is totally engineered and proof is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7iBUkshzHE

    James McCanney has spoken extensively about weather manipulation.

    Follow the money and have possible reason for the weather manipulation.

  • Timco

    Secret deals being done behind closed doors to save the west from sure destruction. I’ll bet you everything I’m worth, It’ll start raining like a cow peeing in an army boot, just in the nick of time.
