So a California drought constitutes an "apocalypse?"

I got about 1 minute, 45 seconds in before I turned it off. Guy sounds like a whacko.

They produce 1/2 of our food. If that goes away then you've got a big problem.

California does not produce half of American food.

California produces 12.8% of all agricultural products in America by dollar value -- which is inflated by the fact that they produce a disproportionately large number of high-value speciality crops, like wine grapes, almonds, avocados, pistachios, walnuts, strawberries, etc.

That can be grown in other states like they do now.

Some may mock. Some may laugh. Some call me a science denier because....

I believe the potable water issue so far outweighs climate change in importance that they aren't even comparable issues.

I've seen half that vid elsewhere. Hosting a conf with my overnight team in Bangalore... Well I have the bridge. Lol

Don't you realize that no less an authority as Donald John Trump has stated that California is not suffering a drought?


Donald Trump tells Californians there is no drought


True, there is some question on whether the Presumptive Republican Nominee is fully aware of what the word 'drought' means. Some evidence suggests that he believes the word implies a lack of attractive women.

Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska are top 3 in corn

Idaho, Washington, Wisconsin are top 3 in potatoes

North Dakota, Kansas, Montana are top 3 in wheat

Nebraska, Texas, Kansas top 3 in beef cattle

Iowa, Minnesota, North Carolina are top 3 in hogs

Arkansas, Georgia, Alabama are top 3 in chickens

that's the bulk of the American diet, right there. Somehow I doubt that the U.S. food supply is going to be put in jeopardy by a pistachio shortage, or a rise in the price of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Lake mead is down 75 some odd feet from I lived in Vegas, exiting in 2001. Water resources, and not contributing to the drain, is what has kept me from moving back west.
