It's a lie

It's a lie

It's a lie.

There is no "water shortage" human populations require the movement and acquisition of water, we have been irrigating for a really long time, it's not "over population" it's not "climate change" people any place you settle that needs to be irrigated and isn't is "over populated" the weather changes dramatically, it's normal.

What is "Abnormal" is not irrigating settled locations claiming there is a "drought" and charging people for water for profit.

We pipe Oil we dig from the ground, miles deep, refine it in Alaska and pipe it to sandiego, but no one can bring water via pipe from all of Northern Canada and Alaska lol, lol, lol

There are so many ways and means to bring water it's a joke, they refuse, you pay for the "crisis" there is no other story here.

Trees help keep water levels higher. Read the info on permaculture it explains the relationship of trees and water table levels

No trees or few trees means your water table will be lower. The average depth in forested areas is 60 to 90 feet deep

We raise sheep which require permanent pasture. We don't bother with lawns. We are ultra conservative on water. And yes, we have a well. We know the water table levels in our area. Because we have gone thru this same drought cycle twice before, we don't waste water even when there is no drought.

I'm no Californian but I imagine your reasoning is quite faulty there, as ChesterJohn points you can't just isolate your county from the rest of California and view it as a wholly separate system. I'm quite sure all counties in California are at least somewhat dependent and connected to each other. If they lack water in Los Angeles they'll take some of your water, they're not about to have half of LA dying because of terminal dehydration.

Or are they? Du-dunn! *Conspiracy*

Wrong. There are natural underground rock walls in my county that prevents sharing of our aquifers, some even between cities. That's why we have pipelines in which to transfer water from one area of CA to another.

Pipelines. Uhm, yeah. That would be the kind of versatility and dependency I was referring to.

How are trees going to make the drought end? Wouldn't a tree use more water in a day that humans use? They also transpire an enormous amount of water.

Like they said earlier. The more densely forested areas in California are near valleys and streams. Take a drive through cAlifornia and you'll know what I mean. A valley is going to have drastically more water than that of a flat area.

You can almost see the "tree line" where the foothills start and the flat Central Valley ends. It goes from a prairie like landscape to a forest of healthy oak trees.

I have driven 90% of California And most of it is open farmland or coniferous forests with scarce populations.

The only cities you hear about is Los angeles, San diego, and San Francisco. And if you ask anyone from California about those places that aren't from a larger city they will say those cities are horrible. And represent nothing of the real California. Yet consume almost every resource from it.

There are plenty of trees in California. And all the native plants are very adapted to an arid climate.

Some plants i rarely remember seeing as a kid are now more bountiful from the drought. I have also noticed the decrease in invasive species.
