Good question, but I don't think the answer is just one simple thing. (I've never heard of China seeding their clouds for rain, but I'll give you
the benefit of the doubt for now.)
I've never been a believer in Global Warming. Just recently, UK's Telegraph published data that scientists have been mis-reporting S. American
temperatures as too high since the 1950s.
Also, Alaska's HAARP was involved with scientists from Berkeley and Stanford who were studying "how to heat up the ionosphere" just about the time
Global Warming was being trumpeted in the lamestream media. (HARRP Alaska was shut down in May 2013 - and the drought index for the continental U.S.
dropped fast by the end of the year.)
I lived in Los Angeles for a few decades in the last century, and I noticed how the weather ran on a cycle of a few years of drought - then
cloudbursts of rain. It was just a cycle for that environment that many residents found hard to adjust to.
There may be other factors that are not yet understood. The West Coast is still getting some ocean-borne radiation from Fukushima, that may be
heating up the Pacific. All the Cruise ship fires in the past few years may be the Chinese Navy testing their EMC weapons. And California setting up
"sensors" the length of the state to monitor the San Andreas quake may be somehow interfering with the normal rain or moisture pattern.
I'm not sure about that last paragraph of ideas. They are just my speculations that may eventually prove to be wrong. If you want to dig in and
study this complicated idea, here are some "drought monitor" sites. Maybe you can figure out at least the biggest contributing factors:
U.S. DROUGHT MONITOR
CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER: DROUGHT INFORMATION
HISTORICAL PALMER DROUGHT INDICES
This is fun! I put in May 2013 - when HAARP Alaska was shut down - and ended with December 2013. The difference is startling!
