“Crowfoot said officials should curtail Southern California’s reliance on water delivered from the northern reservoirs including Lake Oroville, reducing pressure on the state’s infrastructure by increasing water recycling or stormwater capture. Another step could be focusing on sending more water to underground aquifers, replenishing groundwater supplies.”Sounds reasonable but each solution means to move more toward the reduction of productivity and the availability of water. Notice “curtail” means cut the water. An they want to force more water into the ground which means less for salad greens and showers. All three concepts of the mantra of the greens is here: Reduce, Recycle and recycle. We see this a few paragraphs later.
“California has always grappled with cycles of drought and deluge — Gov. Leland Stanford used a rowboat to reach his inauguration in 1862 — but the problems are expected to be exacerbated by climate change.”They admit that water is not a new problem. The concede that California has always had a cycle of “drought and deluge” but then throw in the canard about climate change as if that was the reason for the cycle.
Climate change is a socialist term for more government control. What form it will take at this point I don’t know but it won’t be the old result of producing more water for a growing economy. It will take the form of less water, used more wisely. Who will determine what is wise? Your local water commissioner. You don’t have one? You will. Maybe they will call the position Aqua Czar. Don’t worry it will be for your own good. It is the nature of socialism.
