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"

Those lakes and rivers should pick a depth and stick to it. Doesn't nature realize that it is supposed to be a static and unchanging backdrop?

Watch for around 32,000,000 folks to start migrating east...

If you like your lake......fuck you!

So serious that it's been causing out of control inflation for decades, even before the drought started.

Aww, who am I kidding? It's under control.

Clearly Mother Nature is a terrorist and should be placed on the no fly list.

Speaking of which..


Now would be a good time for that nuclear false flag on Vegas before Mead dries up.

I'm sure Adelson has doubled his insurance already...

I know some people who paid an extra $180 grand on top of the house price for their waterfront property. Now, they have a wonderful view of the mud flats. On a 'good day' they may see some frogs.

The Californian drought isn't serious at all.  Mother Earth is doing just fine.  I'm tired of all the alarmists.

I'd give a few sleeves of maples for the minutes from that McCain meeting with his ISIS boyfriends...

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.

People need to learn ways to conserve, recycle, and do without!

tonyw's picture

"conserve, recycle, and do without"  that doesn't sound very american

at least they should be able to do some good maintenance on those bridge supports, if not why not???

JonNadler's picture

we can't buy enough water with food stamps, (oh excuse me SNAP) and then fill the lake back up. 46 million on food stamps, ten gallons each, maybe 460 million gallons can do something no

MisterMousePotato's picture

Man, everyone is so negative. This ain't a problem; it's an opportunity (to do some near free maintenance on those bridge foundations, etc. Look at the bright side, Guys.

Are you suggesting the source of salt water would be the radioactive Pacific? 

rosiescenario's picture

Maybe ab ebola false flag? It is natural and organic.


Talking about a complete waste of water, Vegas comes to mind.

Thanks for the Vegas False Flag link. It makes a good argument. Glad I don't live there, but I am downwind, so not good if they "pull it".

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."


MisterMousePotato's picture

Doesn't anyone read the papers? The problem in California is 'white flight', as clearly depicted in this satellite photograph from an official site:

If people would stop drinking the stuff we wouldn't have these problems.

The Feather can fill up in a heart beat. This is Nor Cal bitchez.

The snow will fly and the salmon will spawn, Nor Cal will make's those idiots down south that won't make it.

Nor Cal will always thrive bitchez.

FYI Burning Man is on "mud hold" as it just poured all over the Northern Sierra.

"The snow will fly and the salmon will spawn, Nor Cal will make's those idiots down south that won't make it."

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. 

R-502's picture

UMMM, Sacramento residences don't even have fucking water meters.  :P

BandGap's picture

I know I paid a flat rate of $52 a month when I lived there 20 years ago. Why would a meter be necessary when the city says what I should pay?

TahoeBilly2012's picture

My Father managed the hydro at this lake for 40 years. This is NOT Lake Mead and never will be, get that shit straight. Oregon doesn't have a shed like this! The Feather will always re fill.

Cruel Aid's picture

R u kidding? how can you be controlled if they don't have data on you. I hv 2 friggin meters, so they can keep track of my house and shop. I pay double meter fee.

San Francisco steals all of its water from the Hetch Hetchy.  Absolutely destroying one of the greatest natural sites in the world.

TahoeBilly2012's picture

SF has been stealin that water forever. The eco system has already adapted. Imagine the lunkers at the bottom of Hetch Hetchy if you could get a lure down there.


Four chan's picture

the un is telling ignorant detroiters water is a right and absolutely free and the obomaites have bit the hook. why are they so stupid?

Oldwood's picture

Detroit and Chicago will sign a deal to sell great lakes water to California by way of the Great Obama Pipeline, paid for with government Obama bonds. Canada will sue and then agree that socialist redistribution applies to water as well as all other property. 

TahoeBilly2012's picture

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.

A Nanny Moose's picture

Amen. Water in the west is just another Government "solution"

R-502's picture

Lake Shasta is as bad or worse but they keep releasing heavy for the smelt and salmon runs. If you go to Whiskeytown Lake its full to the brim.... Just saying maybe they shouldn't release so much. :P

Carpenter1's picture

I get a kick out of the californians telling us it's not that bad, overblown by press, etc. 

Their fear is palpable. 

BlindMonkey's picture

Mr Yellen can just print water. Right?

TheRideNeverEnds's picture

Well she can print the money to buy the water from, uh... the chinese? 


oh wait no they are already buying their water from us.




Hey look over there!  The Emmys!

PhysicalRealm's picture

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.

mkkby's picture

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.

Sandmann's picture

I they stopped drinking it from swimming pools, sprinkler systems, dishwashers, and washing machines they would probably be okay......but civilisations die out when the water evaporates

Dr Strangemember's picture

Folks in Cali need to just get smaller boats... it's all relative guys.

Oh, and isn't California basically a desert?  Last time I lived there it was.  What do you expect?  Nothing to see here guys... move on.

camaro68ss's picture

California needs to pass a law mandating that it needs to rain more, should help.

sixsigma cygnusatratus's picture

California will soon run out of Nevada and Oregon's water too, 'cause we're all in it together right?
