California – A Food Powerhouse In Peril ( Sinclair & Co., Oct 25, 2014):

Now in its third year, the drought in California has forced local farmers to switch their water use from rivers and reservoirs, which are at historic low levels, to underground sources. This has mitigated substantial production losses, but given that underground reservoirs take a long time to replenish, if the drought continues the food situation in California might get much more dicey.

Who’s Afraid of Wilhelm Reich (suppressed science)

Wilhelm Reich – Man’s Right to Know

Description:

Why would the United States government seek out and literally burn all the books they could find that mentioned a particular scientist’s work? Don’t you owe it to yourself to learn what it is they’ve worked so hard to suppress?

The life story of Wilhelm Reich should be taught in schools across the globe! If you don’t know about this important 20th century figure, you owe it to yourself to watch this free documentary on his life. I found it at Archive.org and reposted. Below is the description and information I found at that site. Continue reading »

- 60% Of California Will Remain In Drought Through Winter, NOAA Warns (ZeroHedge, Oct 17, 2014):

Just wehn you thought it was safe to shower again, NOAA issues their US seasonal drought outlook and crushes dreams of wetter winter helping Californians. Hopes for heavy rain from El Nino will not be enough to change the drought situation for 60% of Californians, as MotherJones reports, NOAA forecasters warn, “While we’re predicting at least a 2 in 3 chance that winter precipitation will be near or above normal throughout the state, with such widespread, extreme deficits, recovery will be slow.”

- “Nobody Has Any Idea How Disastrous It’s Going To Be” Warns California Water Expert (ZeroHedge, Oct 5, 2014):

Newly released images created from NASA satellite data illustrate the staggering effect the California drought has had on groundwater supply in the state. As Mashable’s Patrick Kulp explains, the images show the amount of water lost over the past 12 years, with different colors indicating severity over time. “Nobody has any idea how disastrous it’s going to be,” Mike Wade of California Farm Water Coalition told the Associated Press, as RT reports a growing number of communities in central and northern California could end up without water in 60 days due to the Golden state’s prolonged drought. While California is bearing the brunt, experts note “We’re seeing it happening all over the world, in most of the major aquifers in the arid and semi-arid parts of the world.”

Via Mashable,

California is currently experiencing the third year of one of the most severe short-term droughts ever recorded. Data from U.S. Drought Monitor shows that as of Sept. 30, 82% of the state is facing extreme or exceptional drought conditions. Continue reading »

- Weather Warfare Assault On California Intensifies (GeoengineeringWatch, Oct 3, 2014):

The climate engineers continue to hammer California with record heat and drought. Meteorologically speaking maps like the one below are historically unprecedented. This is what climate engineering can do, fry one location while temporarily cooling another. The geoengineers can and are continuing to cook California under a virtual target of heat and drought. Meteorologists have coined the term “ridiculously resilient ridge” to describe the engineered HAARP induced high pressure that is being kept locked in place over the West.  Are maps like the one below also meant to send a message with their bullseye of blazing heat centered exactly over the once golden state like a target? Let’s keep this in mind, the NOAA mapping is done by the private defense industry contractor Raytheon who is major player in the ongoing climate engineering nightmare. Those who are controlling the weather then issue maps like the one below that tell us all what they have “scheduled” for us . The unprecedented heat and drought is yet again scheduled for the western US is indicated by the map below, this continuous scenario is completely engineered and unnatural. In addition to systematically destroying the biosphere and contaminating all life with highly toxic metals, we should also consider this, the already operational global spraying network could be used to spread a deadly pathogen any time the power structure wishes to do so, who can stop them when the public is even now generally unaware of geoengineering and the atmospheric spraying?

Below is the latest NOAA map for October showing even more intensified heat and drought scheduled for the already decimated state of California.

- Water rationing hits California: limit of 50 gallons per person per day or face fines of $500 (Natural News, Sep 29, 2014):

Millions of Californians are about to be hit with strict water rationing — daily “allocation” numbers that represent the maximum amount of water you’re allowed to use for any purpose. Households that exceed the allocation limit will face stiff fines of hundreds of dollars per violation.

“In July, the State Water Resources Control Board passed stage one emergency regulations, giving powers to all local water agencies to fine $500 per violation,” reports the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. [1]

Keep in mind that these are only “stage one” emergency regulations. Stages two and three have yet to be invoked and will only become more severe. Continue reading »

Almonds

- World’s almond supply approaching collapse due to California drought (Natural News, Sep 25, 2014):

Almond farmers in California’s Central Valley, where about 80 percent of the world’s supply of almonds is grown, are desperate for water. As most of the state hobbles through one of its worst droughts in history, growers are reportedly siphoning off water wherever they can get it, robbing taxpayers and the general public of a shared and increasingly scarce resource that could take many years to replenish.

Though they are fairly drought-resistant, almonds are growing in popularity all over the world. They have exceeded peanuts here in the States as the consumer nut of choice, and developing nations like China are demanding them like never before. This has resulted in the conversion of more than one million acres of the Central Valley into almond orchards, more than twice the amount compared to 1996. Continue reading »

- California Or Ethiopia? “Families Dream Every Night About Water” (Zerohedge, Sep 22, 2014):

It’s worst and getting worst-er. Hundreds of domestic wells in California’s drought-parched Central Valley farming region have run dry, according to AP, leaving many residents to rely on donated bottles of drinking water to get by. With government set to regulate deeper drilling, hope is plunging that a solution to California’s drought will come anytime soon as groundwater levels plunge. The stories of struggle are simply stunning, especially given they are coming from America with Governor Brown signing an executive order that provides money to buy drinking water for residents statewide whose wells have dried up. “We need water like we need air,” exclaimed one charity leader trying to raise money for water tanks, “Families every night dream about water,” said another. And ripped from the famine-headlines of East Africa, “every day [Californians] thinking about how they’re going to deal with water.”

- California Is Burning: Postcards From The Inferno (ZeroHedge, Sep 17, 2014):

As if the drought was not disastrous enough for California, a consequence of the state’s dryness is that nearly 6,000 firefighters are battling 12 separate wildfires raging across the Golden State.

As the Cal Fire chief notes, “We’ve seen a lot more fires, and with those fires, more and more people are at threat. Every day we continue to see new fires ignite, forcing hundreds to evacuate,” and the following images from the infernos suggest there is no end in sight as “we start to see winds pick up and conditions are at their driest.”

- Desperate Californians steal water from fire hydrants as rich community pays half a million dollars for overwatering lawns (Natural News, Sep 15, 2014):

The ongoing water crisis in California has sparked an apparent crime wave in some parts of the state, with desperate residents illegally taking water from fire hydrants in the middle of the night to keep their lawns green and their animals happy. Reports indicate that, in some areas, as much as 10 percent of the water supply has gone missing, presumably due to theft, a premonition of much worse things to come if rains remain at bay.

The city of Lemoore, for instance, a community of some 25,000 people south of Fresno, has seen numerous water thefts in recent weeks — a growing black market for water amidst one of the worst droughts in California history. According to The Hanford Sentinel, thieves are believed to be attaching hoses to fire hydrants throughout the city and pumping water into large plastic tanks affixed to the back of trucks.

Just how dry is California? Here is The LA Times showing every map of California released by the U.S. Drought Monitor since 2011 (the last time there was any drought conditions). More than 80% of California is in extreme drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, and the state’s condition isn’t expected to improve in the near future; and 100% of California remains at least in drought for at least the 4th month in a row… and it’s spreading to the rest of the nation.

- Drought apocalypse begins in California as wells run dry (Natural News, Sep 4, 2014):

Water wells in central California have begun to run dry, reports the LA Times. (1) “Extreme drought conditions have become so harsh for the Central Valley community of East Porterville [that] many of its residents dependent on their own wells have run out of water.”

Tulare County has confirmed their wells have run out of water, and so far hundreds of homes have no running water.

According to the LA Times, rumors are also spreading that Child Protective Services officials will begin taking children away from families who have no running water, although the county claims the rumor is false.

It begins: the collapse of California’s water aquifers

- Government To Regulate Groundwater For 1st Time As California Drought Becomes “Race To The Bottom” (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2014):

The ongoing disaster that is the drought in the West is leaving wells dry across California – which account for up to 60% of water usage. As WSJ reports, as groundwater levels plunge (100 feet or more lower than norm), wells are being driven further and further into the earth (500 feet in some cases) forcing the state legislature is considering regulating underground water for the first time. “We can’t continue to pump groundwater at the rates we are and expect it to continue in the future,” warns one engineer, adding “What’s scary is we’re not fixing anything… It’s a race to the bottom.”

“Everybody was pumping to their heart’s content, until they realized the basin isn’t that big.”

 As WSJ reports, Groundwater was kind of out of sight, out of mind,” said Lester Snow, executive director of the California Water Foundation, a nonprofit policy group in Sacramento, and former director of the state Department of Water Resources. But now… Continue reading »

California Droughts: Then And Now (Erico Matias Tavares of Sinclair & Co, Aug 21, 2014):

The obstinate drought in California is showing no signs of letting up, and is now being compared to the last major drought which took place during 1976 and 1977.

Back then, the state was not as well equipped to cope with severe dryness. The sharp decline of surface water supplies coupled with the lack of backup reservoirs and waterways caused a lot of damage to the state’s agriculture, in particular to the livestock industry. As it turned out, the drought reversed itself completely a year later, and California powered on to become the major agro-industrial player it is today. Continue reading »

The Drought Goes From Bad To Catastrophic (ZeroHedge, Aug 2, 2014):

As we previously commented, when scientists start using phrases such as “the worst drought” and “as bad as you can imagine” to describe what is going on in the western half of the country, you know that things are bad. However, in recent weeks the dreadful situation in California has gone from bad to catastrophic as the U.S. Drought Monitor reported that more than half of the state is now in experiencing ‘exceptional’ drought, the most severe category available. And most of the state – 81% – currently has one of the two most intense levels of drought.

Wide swaths of the United States remain mired in one of the worst droughts in recent times, prompting some to describe conditions as near “apocalyptic.”

California, which is essentially the nation’s fruit basket, has been particularly hard hit. As noted by The Economic Collapse Blog, some scientists and climatologists are beginning to use phrases like “the worst drought” and “as bad as you can imagine” to describe the current situation in the western half of the nation.
