California stopped creating reservoirs when we were about 20 million people. Now we are over 40 million, with no planning or leadership to provide adequate water availability .
Our other utilities are similarly managed into shortages.
Meanwhile, the solution is to tax productive people out of the State, while importing welfare Customers from around the world into Socialist California,. They have the Federal government pay for it, meaning the rest of the country pays for Sacramento’s dereliction .
Quite the scam !
You said it I am so sick of the greed and corruption in Calif.. we are dealing with severe drought and transportation of our groundwater to illegal activities aka cannabis by greed driven ag well owners in the very Northern California county of Siskiyou county,the state water board has turned a BLIND eye -dereliction of duty attitude to enforcement of the problem and see no issue with greed driven ag well owners, aka massive pumps that can pump approximately 4500 gallons per about 15 min to fill a water truck to take to water less parcels to grow weed,that is illegal in our county and only allows 6 for medicinal not commercial tainted weed full of chemicals and grown at high speed with propane. The state of California agencies on water and weed STINK of corruption.
When will leftist states/corporations/billionaires decide who does and doesn't get water based on their political identity? How about electricity, food, medicine...
The left has a long and modern history of exterminating the politically inconvenient.
In your show about this you spoke of a town in AZ involved in a suit to divert Colorado River water to their town. They wish to divert a small amount of water to save themselves money since they must currently replenish their aquafer gallon for gallon. Maybe the town is located in an area that has overgrown with people. If they win their case, the related hedge fund will monetize money all over the USA and many will be paying more for water.
