People worry far too much. The US and most likely the northern hemisphere are just going through the inevitable dry spell of an El Nino system. Dry
summers, low rain, it comes and goes.
In the southern hemisphere we are just receding from the La Nina event, the opposite where it is very wet and cyclone prone weather in the northern
summers, cool and mild summers in the south. In the last year we had a very mild summer by comparison in the north, with probably half the rainfall of
previous years. The south had very hot and dry conditions, and so far we've been having a mild but cool winter here. The same will eventually happen
in the US. Flashback to around 2000 here and some of the dams were as low as 8%, Three years ago they overflowed and flooded major capitals.
My take is the events are shifting again going on the recurring summers over the last few years, I would suspect within a year or two the US will go
back to La Nina and get the rain it needs.
What most people forget is most of the south western US is desert, tamed and made green by the spread of cities and populace. Given half a chance it
will return to it's natural state. We went through almost 7 years of El Nino here, it just teaches people to be smarter with water.
As for people dobbing people in, the media always hypes up water shortages to make them seem worse than what they are. Add to that the 'name and
shame' fad that's all over the internet right now, it's now surprise people are out doing everything they can to get their five minutes of facebook
fame by snapping shots of water wastage and dobbing everyone and everyone else in. It's just become a sad hallmark of the society we live in.
