U.S. Drought Monitor: Drought levels in the U.S. lowest in 17 years

At the end of April 2017, just 6 percent of the United States was afflicted by drought, the lowest level in 17 years of analysis by the U.S. Drought Monitor. That’s a substantial turnaround from a few years ago, when long and short term droughts spread across much of the nation.

The news marks a downward trend from mid-2011, when many areas of the country began to experience drier-than-average weather. That summer, a headline in the U.S. Drought Monitor read: “‘Exceptional drought’ record for United States set in July.” By July 12, almost 12 percent of the contiguous United States was in an “exceptional” drought—including states as far flung as Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Florida.

California Drought Hoax: Absolute Proof They Drained The Dams On Purpose, Causing Severe Flooding And NEVER Gave California Growers A SINGLE DROP

Conspiracy FACT: The end of the California Orange

I lived in the San Joaquin valley, and saw this myself: CALIFORNIA HAS NO DROUGHT, IT IS A HOAX. THE ISRAELI CONTROLLED FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DRAINED THE DAMS ON PURPOSE TO KILL THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND ARE FRONTING AN INTENTIONAL CATASTROPHE CAUSED BY DRAINING THE DAMS AS SOMETHING NATURAL. THERE HAS BEEN NO SIGNIFICANT DROUGHT, THE FOLLOWING PROVES IT:

PHOTOS OF DAM DRAINAGE AS IT HAPPENED – THE END of the California orange

The following photos are absolute proof they drained the dams on purpose, causing severe flooding and NEVER gave california growers a SINGLE DROP for the sole purpose of killing all the orange orchards, grape vineyards and almond groves. It is important to note that with any war effort waged by the usurpers of a conquored government, that fake documentation will be produced by the government to support the lie. That is when you have to use photos to prove that the documents, which show a drought and reduced out flows, are fake.

Too Much Snow Closes Ski Resorts ,Ice Pillars & California Drought Erased in One Storm (Video)

Jan 14, 2017
Description:

With over 10 feet of snow falling in the last weeks in California and Colorado, ski resorts closed from too much snow, highways completely cut off and with one storm, California filled all of its reservoirs again. So much for the doom and gloom of the IPCC telling us the drought would intensify due to CO2 warming and Gore told us our children would never know what snow is again.

Scientists can’t get this N. Hemisphere‘s brutal winter forecast correct, yet we should believe 100 years Forecasts (290)

‘Megadrought’ Looms In American Southwest, NASA Warns

‘Megadrought’ Looms In American Southwest, NASA Warns:

A megadrought lasting decades is 99 percent certain to hit the region this century, said scientists from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. “Historically, megadroughts were extremely rare phenomena occurring only once or twice per millennium,” the report states. “According to our analysis of modeled responses to increased GHGs, these events could become commonplace if climate change goes unabated.

California Drought Worsens – El Nino ‘Gains’ Flushed Into The Pacific As Water Storage Runs Dry

California Drought Worsens – El Nino ‘Gains’ Flushed Into The Pacific As Water Storage Runs Dry:

Californians were recently warned that water levels in the San Luis Reservoir were dangerously low and that water deliveries from the project would likely be shut down as early as this weekend.

 The San Luis Reservoir supplies water to the Santa Clara Valley, San Benito County as well as farmers in the Central Valley.  As of July 22nd, the reservoir stood at 11% of total capacity (226k AF) which puts storage well below the levels recorded during the driest season recorded in 1976-1977.  This news comes in spite of a robust rainy season in California with YTD precipitation roughly 16% higher than the long-term average and over 200% higher than the driest 1976-1977 season.

So, why are California’s reservoirs drying up in spite of a solid rainy season?  The answer lies in the environmental regulations implemented to protect the Delta Smelt, a 5-7cm fish and endangered resident of the California Delta.  Regulations designed to protect the non-native species have prevented pumping of water from the California Delta in Northern California leaving many reservoirs in Southern California empty.  So rather than take advantage of a solid rainy season the State of California has opted to squander the opportunity to refill its water infrastructure and pump the water through the San Francisco bay and into the Pacific Ocean instead.

Leaking Las Vegas: Lake Mead Plunges To Lowest Level Ever As “The Problem Is Not Going Away”

Leaking Las Vegas: Lake Mead Plunges To Lowest Level Ever As “The Problem Is Not Going Away”:

The hopes of an El Nino-driven refill from last summer’s plunging levels of the nation’s largest reservoir have been dashed as AP reportsLake Mead water levels drop to new record lows (since it was filled in the 1930s) leaving Las Vegas facing existential threats unless something is done. Las Vegas and its 2 million residents and 40 million tourists a year get almost all their drinking water from the Lake and at levels below 1075ft, the Interior Department will be forced to declare a “shortage,” which will lead to significant cutbacks for Arizona and Nevada. As one water research scientist warned, “this problem is not going away and it is likely to get worse, perhaps far worse, as climate change unfolds.”

As USA Today reports,the nation’s largest reservoir has broken a record, declining to the lowest level since it was filled in the 1930s.

Venezuela Declares Every Friday A Holiday To Conserve Electricity

Venezuela Declares Every Friday A Holiday To Conserve Electricity:

When we last checked in on everyone’s favorite Latin American socialist paradise, Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro’s opponents “had gone crazy.” Or at least that’s how Maduro described the situation in a “thundering” speech to supporters at what he called an “anti-imperialist” rally in Caracas in mid-March.

Maduro

Meanwhile, thousands of demonstrators had been holding counter-rallies calling for the President’s ouster. Maduro angered the opposition – which dealt Hugo Chavez’s leftist movement its worst defeat at the ballot box in history in December – the previous month when he used a stacked Supreme Court to give himself emergency powers he says will help him deal with the country’s worsening economic crisis.

Lake Shasta has risen 100 feet since December

FYI.


Lake Shasta has risen 100 feet since December:

Folsom Lake in drought-stricken northern California has risen ~90 feet in the same time, says reader H.B. Schmidt.

“The website, cdec.water.ca.gov, maintains daily, monthly, and annual reservoir records going back at least to 1985,” says H.B. “It is extremely interesting what the data reveals if you’re willing to search for it.

Lake-Shasta-Rises-100-ft

“For example, the last El Niño in 2010-11 replenished virtually all the major reservoirs managed by the state water board after the droughts began in 2007. Yet at Trinity Lake in northwestern California, from 1986-93 there was an equally impressive drought and decline in lake levels as seen today, and in 1977 there was a catastrophic decline to its lowest level in the past 30 years — which matches with the lowest seasonal snowfall on record at Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort (94.0″, or 26.9% of average).

Caught On Tape: Dramatic Footage Of Russia’s First Airstrikes In Syria

Caught On Tape: Dramatic Footage Of Russia’s First Airstrikes In Syria:

As we reported earlier this morning, at the “request” (whatever that means in the context of Russian politics) of Vladimir Putin, Russian lawmakers have approved airstrikes in Syria and unlike the rather deliberate pace of Washington’s efforts to rout ISIS, Moscow doesn’t appear to be wasting any time.

As CNN reports, Russia has conducted its first strikes near Homs after effectively warning the US to stay out of the sky.

California Droughtrage – LA County Supervisors Have Cars Washed 3 Times A Week

California Droughtrage – LA County Supervisors Have Cars Washed 3 Times A Week (ZeroHedge, Aug 28, 2015):

Great news – Californians have managed to reduce water usage by 31% in July, surpassing the mandated 25% reduction amid the worst drought in centuries. However, this dramatic reduction is in now way thanks to local government in Los Angeles, where, as Daily News reports, the majority of LA County supervisors have their take-home cars washed two or three times a week, service records show, and actually washed them more frequently than before Governor Brown’s orders. Once again – do as I say, not as I do!

What Drought? Nestle Pays Only $524 To Extract 27,000,000 Gallons Of California Drinking Water

Nestle Pays Only $524 To Extract 27,000,000 Gallons Of California Drinking Water (The Anti Media, Aug 21, 2015)

Nestle has found itself more and more frequently in the glare of the California drought-shame spotlight than it would arguably care to be — though not frequently enough, apparently, for the megacorporation to have spontaneously sprouted a conscience.

Drought-shaming worked sufficiently enough for Starbucks to stop bottling water in the now-arid state entirely, uprooting its operations all the way to Pennsylvania. But Nestle simply shrugged off public outrage and then upped the ante by increasing its draw from natural springs — most notoriously in the San Bernardino National Forest — with an absurdly expired permit.

Because profit, of course. Or, perhaps more befittingly, theft. But you get the idea.

Europe hit by the strongest drought in the last 12 years

H/t reader squodgy.

He commented here “Engineered Drought Catastrophe, Target California (Video)“:

“And Europe perhaps?”

* **

It is all planned.

There will be hunger and civil war (also in France, Italy and Germany) in Europe after the financial collapse.

And after that the Illuminati have WW3 (no full nuclear exchange) planned for us.


Europe hit by the strongest drought in the last 12 years (The Watchers, Aug 21, 2015):

One of the worst droughts since the heat wave of the 2003 summer season affected a large part of continental Europe during June and July 2015, European Drought Observatory (EDO) reported. The drought has been especially strong across France, Benelux, Germany, Hungary, the Czech Republic, the areas in northern Italy and northern Spain.

The drought resulted from the combination of rain shortage since April and very high temperatures brought by the heat wave in July. The combination of these conditions resulted in high plant evapotranspiration levels, and strongly affected the soil moisture content and vegetation conditions.
