**Yes, we are going to be in a whole lot of hurt this coming summer.
This is now going on the third drought since 1976 that Calif. is in
( although this is going to be the worst it’s looking like ), so you would
logically think that Calif. would be putting in desalinization
plants all along the coast since there is plenty of sea water every year.
BUT NO, the Gov. is bound and determined to spend millions and millions of dollars
building a stupid bullet train ( that is not essential ), and millions and millions more
money building two stupid giant tunnels to run water from Northern Calif. to Southern Calif.
Northern Calif. gets it’s fresh water from storing rain, and from the snow melt from the
Sierra Nevada Mountains all summer. What if it doesn’t rain/snow again say, for ten years ?
All the stupid tunnel would do is sit there dry, doing nothing. It does look like there will always be an ocean,
so you would think that all the big cities right along the coast would do the sure thing and make their own water.
Spend the money from the bullet train and the tunnel to help the big cities build desalinization plants.
( and Calif. produces oil and we do have areas were we would get more oil from fracking ) to power the plants.**
