The article states:
Quote:
The state produces 99 percent of the artichokes grown in the US, 44 percent of asparagus, a fifth of cabbage, two-thirds of carrots, half of bell peppers, 89 percent of cauliflower, 94 percent of broccoli, and 95 percent of celery. Leafy greens? California’s got the market cornered: 90 percent of the leaf lettuce we consume, along with and 83 percent of Romaine lettuce and 83 percent of fresh spinach, come from the big state on the left side of the map. Cali also cranks a third of total fresh tomatoes consumed in the U.S.—and 95 percent of ones destined for cans and other processing purposes.
Well, this news is probably a boon for Mexico as it grows a lot of the same produce! It also would help if some of the state and federal EPA rules on use of water were revised. Instead of “saving” some stupid fish somewhere, why not let the scarce water be used to irrigate fields and farms that produce the food Californians need?

Oh yeah! Forgot! Let's blame Man for all of this. It can't possibly be a natural occurrence that happens in the area on a regular basis. Let's ignore severe droughts in the 1700s and 1800s – okay?

Does posting an article from a radical who thinks the world is coming to an end benefit your argument?

Or the most recent drought, in 1988. Which led to predictions of gloom and doom, starvation, etc. Funny, after the rains finally came, that was completely forgotten.

There is no doubt that droughts are not good. But when every 25 years it's declared that the drought is the "worst ever", I tend to tune out.

And when nature switches to lots of rain, there will be wailing about flooding and mudslides.

And, as always happens, after the rain, vegetation will explode everywhere, providing fodder for more fires!

It's called NATURE and when Mankind messes with it, Man pays the penalty.

I think YOU need to learn to understand humor/satire.

Oh, so BOTH of your posts were meant to be sarcastic? Thanks for clearing that up.

Actually, it's called hypocrisy, and not humor, or satire. One post you claim no man made interference, and in another everything is man's fault. Which is it?

Yet, you call for divergence of river water to benefit agriculture, at the expense of "stupid fish".

Just one silly doomsday howl thread after another.
