Driest California in 500 Years?

“This could potentially be the driest water year in 500 years,” says B. Lynn Ingram, a University of California at Berkeley paleoclimatologist.

Assuming the drought continues, it’s going to have huge and complex effects. Among them:

* Farmers are going to fallow land or pump lots of groundwater, depleting the aquifers for future years.(And water-stealing illegal pot-growers may get pursued more vigorously.)* Some towns may run out out of water; the small community of Willits in Mendocino, has only a 100-day supply left.* Summer wildfires were bad last year (remember the huge Yosemite blaze?)—but with the state even crisper, things may now get worse.* Some rivers will go dry.(Fish always seem to have the last dibs on water in times of drought.)* Air pollution will continue to be a problem. The unusually hot, stagnant air has made it the worst pollution season ever in the San Joaquin Valley. It’s triggered purple alert days in Bakersfield, worse than the usual red—and that’s may continue for awhile. Bay Area winter pollution is also nearing a record.

Then there’s politics. Water was already bound to be a big topic this year in California, what with the state’s $25 billion proposal to fix the Delta, the confluence of two rivers where much Sierra Nevada water flows through. It’s an incredible sum—far more than, say, the $2 billion in extra spending that Texas agonized over last year. But voters may be more open after a few dry years.""

Yes.

Obama could not have extended it if Bush had not forced it through in the first place.

There were plenty of warning of the harm, now we've seen it with NSA spying on us.

All begun with Bush's blessings.

$17 trillion in debt...

...and...

50 million poor Americans living on food deserts...

and then we have this...

$10.6 billion paid for farmers to PLANT nothing...

"Cumulatively, USDA paid $10.6 billion—almost one-fourth of total direct payments made from 2003 through 2011—to producers who did not, in a given year, grow the crop associated with their qualifying acres, which they are allowed to do."

It's truly funny for a complete moron like yourself to accuse others of being in denial.
For 5 years you have been in denial and attacking Obama for everything you can dream up, from his birth to his parents to his decision making.
Yet he was re-elected in 2012.
So who's in denial,Carol?? It's easy to blame the majority for being misled, but that's truly stupid reasoning.
You're part of a tiny minority. Very tiny any way you slice it. And your minority is filled with racists and conapiracy theorists.
Your continuing lies concerning Benghazi marks you as a mentally disturbed old woman.
That's how crazy you are.
The truth is out, and it makes you look very stupid. Not that a fool like you would even care.
----------
"" The Senate Intelligence Committee made headlines last week by reporting that the 2012 attack in Benghazi was preventable. But frankly, we knew that. The deeper message of the bipartisan report was that Republicans in Congress wasted a year arguing about what turned out to be mostly phony issues.
The GOP's Benghazi obsession was the weird backdrop for foreign-policy debate through much of last year. Sen. Lindsey Graham used it as a pretext for blocking administration nominations. Rep. Darrell Issa used the issue to impugn the integrity and independence of a review conducted by retired Adm. Mike Mullen and former Ambassador Tom Pickering."
""Driving the Republican jihad was a claim, first reported in October 2012 by Fox News, that CIA personnel had wanted to respond more quickly to the Benghazi attack but were ordered to "stand down," perhaps by political higher-ups. Although this claim was promptly rebutted by CIA officials, it was repeated by Fox at least 85 times, according to a review by the liberal advocacy group Media Matters. This barrage fueled Republican charges that the Democrats were engaging in a cover-up.
The Senate Intelligence report addressed this inflammatory charge head-on. "The committee explored claims that there was a 'stand down' order given to the security team at the annex. Although some members of the security team expressed frustration that they were unable to respond more quickly to the mission compound, the committee found no evidence of intentional delay or obstruction by the chief of [the CIA] base or any other party."
The Senate panel also rejected the insinuation, made repeatedly by Republicans, that the Obama administration failed to scramble available military assets that could have defended the Benghazi annex and saved the lives of the four American victims. "There were no U.S. military resources in position to intervene in short order in Benghazi," the report says flatly. "The committee has reviewed the allegations that U.S. personnel ... prevented the mounting of any military relief effort during the attacks, but the committee has not found any of these allegations to be substantiated."
These are bipartisan findings, mind you, endorsed by the panel's Republican members as well as Democrats.""

You already lost this issue, but you're too pig-headed to know it.

<quoted text>The "Affordable" "Care" Act. And boy, is it an act!
Deductibles at 600% increases, premiums at 200% increases. So much for "helping" the middle class, eh?
Sissie can't seem to tell the truth about anything.
If the ACA was as bad as you freakin dipsticks say, why do you need to lie about it.
The exchanges offer a wide range of policies with varying deductibles & costs.
If people currently buy as individuals,they will save money on the exchanges.
Sissie is just the typical mealy mouthed lying little twerp as the rest of the right whiners that post here.

First, explain to the readers why you're such a brain dead fool.

You run off like a frightened lemming when challenged, yet feel you have evdery right to ask questions of others 'in their words'.

Try explaining some of the stupid commments you've run away from first.

All the Senate Repubs and Dems that wrote the report on Benghazi, after seeing all the evidence and hearing from all parties, are in denial.

But a nitwit like you is not in denial.

You really are a sick old woman, Carol.

Not surprising. Another Republican targeted and put on the hot seat by the liberal media during an election year.
Dinesh D'Souza, former policy analyst under President Ronald Reagan and known for his film "2016: Obama's America" (which become one of the most successful political documentaries grossing more than $32 million) has been indicted in New York on charges he violated campaign finance laws allegedly directing people to make $20,000 contributions to a campaign he supported and reimbursing them.
The defense attorney said there was never a corrupt agreement of any kind or any request made that the candidate take any action or refrain from taking any action as a candidate if the Senator in question's political campaign were to have been successful.
But you can bet big money, they'll go after this guy with both barrels a-blazing.
And what happened to John Edwards, you ask?
Edwards was indicted on six felony charges of violating multiple federal campaign contribution laws to cover up an extramarital affair to which he fathered a child during his campaign.
But not only was Edwards found not guilty on one count, but the judge declared a mistrial on the remaining five charges as the jury was unable to come to an agreement. The Justice Department dropped the remaining charges and did not attempt to retry Edwards.
(Surprise...surprise! Good thing Edwards was a fellow liberal and on the same side of the fence as Clinton who also "allegedly" took illegal campaign funds from the Chinese and the corrupt liberal media.)
