Growing up in Southern California, I was always aware of two things: Summer time was hot and winter was NOPRMALLY wet! In addition to this knowledge, I also knew that MOST of the water in CA came from the Colorado River and without that water, the southern part of California would revert BACK to the DESERT it is! With me so far? Good, because now it gets 'dicey'-
EVERY year that I can remember there has been a drought! Not some years, EVERY year! Again, without that river from Colorado, there is scant water to be drank. Alright, now let us look at a few 'truths' -
EVERY plant native to southern California is drought resistant, not because it was 'man bred' that way, but because NATURE made them this way. Hmm, must mean there has ALWAYS been little water down there. Now, with that knowledge; EVERY year there has been 'water conservation'! Not some years, EVERY year. Great idea for an area always short of water, right? So, IF this area IS a natural desert that DOESN'T have mch water, wouldn't it also make sense that part of the reason California is seeing LESS water for the people is because the POPULATION has grown WAAAAY larger than what could be kept up with? It IS a desert, how much water could be saved to keep everyone drinking? That is, what is the break point where the number of people is too many to support? How close are we to that? Wy do people keep moving to California and putting mpore of a strain on the drinking supply, and then complain that there ISN'T enough water?
Seems to me that IF people looked at a map, not a road map, but that other kind, the one that shows the vegetation of an area, people would easily see they are moving to a DESERT!!!!
Anyway, come on and move out here, just be warned, IT IS A DESERT WITH DESERT LIKE WEATHER all the time!!!!
