How Serious Is The California Drought?

Tyler Durden's picture


A picture paints a thousand words... but these 3 before-and-after images in California (over a period of just 3 years) suggest only 3 words - "What a Disaster"

Upwater storage is Lake Almanor of which my family owns one the olders cabins on the Lake (resevoir).

Storage is WAY above the big drought years (see graph!).

The LOWER resevoir, Oroville, the Durden Twins of LA have posted, doesn't mean shit.

Here is the official flows from (Lee Marvins) upwater.

They have learned to keep precious cold water HIGHER to allow the salmon fingerlings to hatch.

Nor Cal ain't out of water yet. The South Central Valley, So Cal (Jew Movie Landia) and Vegas Baby are!

Fuck off and pack a load! Sept 18th-21st historic Johnsville Skibowl circa 1860.

If these are worse photos to sensationalise the topic, then you haven't a problem. I lived in Oz where lakes were dry for years. When I mean dry you could walk across the bottom and not get muddy shoes.

California Drought Amazing Satellite Fraud 8 14 14


By The HAARP Report

Published on Aug 14, 2014


This shows the REAL reason for the California drought (along with chemtrails, of course). It is AMAZING that hurricane Julio is still shown on the visible satellite, but it DOESN'T EXIST ANYMORE. The other three satellite images prove that it was destroyed by a HAARP downburst of dry air, on August 13, but on the next day, the visible satellite image is still showing it, like nothing happened.

The tropical depression Julio was killed before it could be pulled over to California, by the jetstream. This would have brought tons of rain to California, and Oregon, but it is now destroyed, so the California drought is extended another month.

The Gakona HAARP kills EVERY low pressure system, while it is still over the Pacific, before it can bring rain to the west coast. Several of my videos prove this is happening, so to hide the breakup of this strong tropical depression, they killed it when it was 2,000 miles from California.

It was killed, very suddenly, over a six hour period, for no apparent reason, while spinning over warm water, and no jetstream to tear it apart. To avoid the suspicion that HAARP did it, they decided to STILL show it on the satellite maps, even though it is GONE!!!


The people of California must start talking about who is buying up their private water rights. You will find many land owners have sold out, for large sums of money, and the people who bought those rights are the prime suspect in the man-made California drought.


A comment there: "CA is the salad bowl of the US and is NOT a GMO' ed state! Another reason for the drought effect by the mad scientists."

Those idiots in SoCal will make it because they steal a good portion of NorCal's water. 

Sacramento has two large rivers that flow through it but has the most draconian water restrictions in the State to keep most of the water flowing south.

3 winters ago I skied 15 feet of snow on July 5th. A drought in Nor Cal isn't teh same as a drought in So Cal. Granted the Central Valley goes offline the nation eats Chilean veggies year round. That said, Nor Cal will always be an oasis for the hunter/gatherer who can make his way. So Cal and Vegas Baby are a complete and seperate can of worms.

I spent 45 years in So CA.  So CA is a desert and yes of course there are droughts, it's a regular thing.

I'll consider thinking it's serious when gold courses turn brown and there's no longer any water in the swimming pools.

This is all about money.

I love it when morons say they lived somewhere a long time ago and assume nothing changed.

A lot of muni course closed or were sold to private companies because they couldn't afford the water.  But yes -- nothing will be solved until people pay the actual cost of their water.  It's all wasted because the subsidized prices are artificially low.

As a Left Coast resident my entire life, this isn't anything new.  Those aren't really lakes, those are reservoirs.  We have these things called "winter" and it drops a lot of snow.  They fill up and slowly release the water all summer long and into the fall before they fill up again the next year.

They would be fuller, but the EPA mandates that we release more than we need to to help the various fish.  If one isn't endangered, just give them time, they'll find one.  At least they've given up the idea of making us tear the dams down.  At least for now.

Dude, it snows.  The resorts are doing OK.  And when there isn't any or a lot of snow, they make it, which means they have water.

There's plenty of water.  I turn on the tap, it flows.  A drought is Mother Nature's way of reminding us to use resources wisely.  The reservoirs are emptying because people insist on having lawns, the most useless vegetation ever cultivated by man.  That's why we have parks: you want to walk in the grass?  Go to the park.  Otherwise, grow a garden.

And the same is happening in Brazil "Rio Paraiba".

It's so bad that the barges in Sao Paulo can't move. Where the rive "Rio Paraiba" meets the ocean (north of Rio de Janeiro), the river is so weak, that the ocean is pushing up the river, thus the people can’t use its water because it is so salty.

My mother lives north of Rio, so she tells me these things.

She also told me that the local authorities are warning the people that the oil is not as much as they thought.

She then tells me that I am lucky because US has oil for 100 years.

I don’t know if I should laugh…. Or, if I should start crying!

Keep up the chem-trailing. Everytime we had a low pressure front come through California last winter, they sprayed and we only got a trace of precipitation. Starve the serfs by depriving them of water. It's all a part of global depopulation plan by the elites. No food=starvation.

Ya, but that doesn't explain why I get them every time I come to the site on Tor. When I open a new browser window, I have no internet history that google ads on here can detect, so even if I WAS looking at that all the time, ZH's google ads wouldn't know about it. Maybe it just thinks that because I am coming from a weird exit node, because every time I go to google with Tor it is in some random Eastern European language. Any ideas as to why from some more computer savvy people would be welcome.

that still provides a good amount of anonymity.  Yes, they had a hand in it, and yes they have trouble tracking and finding people who use it.

Fer Gawd's sake, don't clear your cache. If you are getting AnastiaDating and ChinesWives ads, consider yourself fortunate!  Once you get the bearded twerp in the "manly clothing" ad, or still worse the pajama-boy-wanabe in the "smart underwear" ad, you'll be pining for Anastasia!

Print moar water! All kidding aside though. California is going to need to outsource its cannabis production somewhere. THey wont be able to keep growing indoor grass with no water. Shit grows great in the Great Lakes region. Too bad Nestle is stealing the water there too.

That's actually not a bad idea. Paper water. Pester backed credit default swaps, water backed securities. Water futures contracts with 100 paper gallons for each real gallo of water. Then, we could all short the shit out of it. That way water would always be cheap and plentiful, and we would get rich on the process. Who wants to invest, bitchez?

+ 1. This is the best comment I've read on this post. Just watched the video. It is actually more credible than the benchmark documentary on the subject of chem trails; What in the World are they Spraying?


We have people in our community that get physically sick the day after spraying occurs. Took years to make the correlation. Whood uh thunk citizens would be bombarded by sickness from above? To paraphrase what Jim Kirk once said about Khan...'We weren't thinking three dimensionally.

Thanks, Bollixed.  Where I live, the spraying has nearly stopped.  Dunno if it's because of this guys work or just that the agenda has changed.  Either way, I'm thankful.  BTW, anybody seen Flakmeister lately?

Those are native Oak trees, they're adapted to CA's semi-arid conditions, though they do seem to be dropping acorns earlier than usual maybe this year, (I'm in Oroville & could hit the park's Visitor Center with a Discraft Ultrastar from here if not for all the oaks.) "Lake" Oroville is a reservoir, not a lake - it's a flooded river canyon, its level depends on both river inputs and the releases made by the human engineers to downstream buyers. Funny thing, the golf course here isn't brown yet. I don't play, I agree with Carlin on this:

oh hey CW, like your posts. My sister and her family were up here a month ago, talk turned to the drought. My boomer dad w/ Alzheimer's was bragging about how they'll never catch him watering.

I said, "Look out back at the park. (Oaks, Gray Pine, tall grass.) All the land up here "wants" to go back to that. Don't mean to anthropomorphize - I mean the energy gradient flows that way. It takes a ridiculous amount of time, energy, water, and poisons to maintain these stupid landscapes, as if..."

Malinvestments are fractal, and have been going on for far too long. The correction will be harsh.

The biggest threat to water supplies in California is the stategov and fedgov.  The bulk of the surface water from seasonal rains and snow pack is collected in resevoirs, whose water release is controlled by stategov and fedgov.  Just ask the farmers in San Jaquin Valley.  To note, I have seen years where we had well above average rainfall and Shasta and Trinity Lakes were very low by this time of year.  And to make matters worse, plans are in play to destroy several of the dams already in place in Northern California.  California does not need to have water problems; at least not in the north.  California is on an 11 year El Nino cycle and this can be planned for with the water storage in place.  But that would assume that intelligent minds were in control of the reins of power.
