It’s The End Of March And 99.85% Of California Is Abnormally Dry Already

It’s The End Of March And 99.85% Of California Is Abnormally Dry Already (ZeroHedge, March 26, 2015):

With NASA scientists warning about California only having one year of water left, it appears The Kardashians and March Madness continue to distract Americans from the ugly looming reality of water shortages. With summer around the corner, the US Drought Minitoring service reports today that a stunning 99.85% of California is “abnormally dry,” and 98.11% of the state is in drought conditions leaving over 37 million people in harm’s way.


As we concluded previously,

Right now the state has only about one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing. California has no contingency plan for a persistent drought like this one (let alone a 20-plus-year mega-drought), except, apparently, staying in emergency mode and praying for rain.

In short, we have no paddle to navigate this crisis.

Several steps need be taken right now.

First, immediate mandatory water rationing should be authorized across all of the state’s water sectors, from domestic and municipal through agricultural and industrial. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is already considering water rationing by the summer unless conditions improve. There is no need for the rest of the state to hesitate. The public is ready. A recent Field Poll showed that 94% of Californians surveyed believe that the drought is serious, and that one-third support mandatory rationing.

Second, the implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014 should be accelerated. The law requires the formation of numerous, regional groundwater sustainability agencies by 2017. Then each agency must adopt a plan by 2022 and “achieve sustainability” 20 years after that. At that pace, it will be nearly 30 years before we even know what is working. By then, there may be no groundwater left to sustain.

Third, the state needs a task force of thought leaders that starts, right now, brainstorming to lay the groundwork for long-term water management strategies. Although several state task forces have been formed in response to the drought, none is focused on solving the long-term needs of a drought-prone, perennially water-stressed California.

Our state’s water management is complex, but the technology and expertise exist to handle this harrowing future. It will require major changes in policy and infrastructure that could take decades to identify and act upon. Today, not tomorrow, is the time to begin.

Finally, the public must take ownership of this issue. This crisis belongs to all of us — not just to a handful of decision-makers. Water is our most important, commonly owned resource, but the public remains detached from discussions and decisions.

This process works just fine when water is in abundance. In times of crisis, however, we must demand that planning for California’s water security be an honest, transparent and forward-looking process. Most important, we must make sure that there is in fact a plan.

Call me old-fashioned, but I’d like to live in a state that has a paddle so that it might also still have a creek.

  1. I agree with the article. What I find disturbing is that everyone is going on as if nothing were happening to our state. I was in college during the drought of the 1970s, and it was far less deadly than this one. People were not allowed to water their lawns, wash their cars, except at a self serve car wash that used recycled water, or through a professional service that also uses recycled water…..

    We were told to abstain from flushing except when essential…..NOTHING is being said or done! Just like everything else……….nothing works…….there is no leadership, just idiots drawing paychecks……

    We are in deep trouble because we have fools in power who are too lazy and self serving to care about the long term effects of an enduring drought on our future……………….

  2. To my simple mind, it is most unlikely that this continued drought is natural.

    We can’t even blame the Christ Child.

    Logic points to HAARP, and obvioulsy with a complict US Gov.

    But what for?

    It can only be a precurser for Agenda 21…food shortages, riots, martial law, FEMA camps, civil war.

    As Kissinger said…control the food and….you control the people.
