Indeed. But did you notice no one touched overpopulation and immigration into our fragile state?

Yes, that is confusing.

We need to conserve natural resources because California will face shortages.

... but let's invite thousands of caravaners from third world countries to live among us for free.

Yep, people drink water and the more you have the more is used. Now controlling illegal immigration would have a huge impact on water use. Can't control legal immigration, etc except by ..... COL. That stops a lot of people from moving to CA.

Not sure even COL stops people from moving to California, have you see the posts about people who want to move with no job and just hope everything works out? frightening...

That's why they need to seriously think of taking water from where it is abundant the Cascades in Oregon and Washington. NorCal is tapped out; its a fragile ecosystem that has been already overburdened.

Yes a "few' such post here, but when we look at the actual figures more people leave than move in. It is foreign migration and the birth rate that causes the growth. So COL for many (other than illegals) is a major factor in discouraging migration from other States into CA and drives others out.

The more costly it gets the fewer people who will move in and more will move out, saving water.

OK, where will the money come from to bring in that water?

What do you do when that water becomes less than needed?

More people makes it more costly and drains resources.

Now if every County was required to do a desalination plant that would help ... about 8%. Eventually too many people will simply mean less for everyone.

No, we need millions ore immigrants so that the LA metro area can double in size. We need more immigration so that we can be forced to take 20 second showers and get scolded about “stealing” water from another part of our same state.

Yes and be required to drive in dirty cars as washing them wastes money. Maybe only allowed to do one batch of clothes a week as well. Can't shower alone either.
