    Isn't it ironic that years ago everything was working perfectly, we had millions of waterfowl we had millions of salmon in the Klamath we had enough water to take care of everything than but now we don't.... We had droughts before and we were able to get through them just fine....What changed?.....We had plenty of money back than to do things and now we don't?...Were spending trillions of dollars on non essential projects.......Come on people wake up!

    You're preaching to the choir here.
    Aside from a population boom with a 1950's infrastructure this was expected.
    We're building more homes btw, so it ain't getting across to the powers that be,,,,,well it is, but they got theirs.

    Remember the idea of getting water from Oregon? They're dry as a bone too.
    When the wells dry the chaos that will ensue will be expected, stock up on ammo.

    How about converting the "train to nowhere" right of way to a water distribution system connected to the Great Lakes. That might address the CA supply issue, but then water allocation would still be a pizzing contest.

    I only have enough time to worry about one crisis at a time. So should I worry about this one, or the toxic drums off LA?

    Population increase and urban sprawl? 10mil in CA in 1950, 40mil now? Higher demand for industrial and agricultural water?

    At what point will desalinization become cost effective to support densely populated costal to semi coastal population centers?
