  • Trump tells California 'there is no drought'

    Wow! Really? So the answer to the drought in California is make believe that there is no drought!

    FRESNO, Calif. — Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told California voters Friday that he can solve their water crisis, declaring, "There is no drought."

    Speaking at a rally in Fresno, Calif., Trump accused state officials of denying water to Central Valley farmers so they can send it out to sea "to protect a certain kind of three-inch fish."

    "We're going to solve your water problem. You have a water problem that is so insane. It is so ridiculous where they're taking the water and shoving it out to sea," Trump said to cheers at a rally that drew thousands.

    He is correct.

    The other factor is the insane water usage of California's big cities.

      Yes, just open up the water! This is the kind of bs that many Americans like to hear nowadays; it's all so simple, just listen to the big words! They're so huuuge, and there's so many of them.

      Sigh, it's a sad thing American politics nowadays; every TD and H thinks their worldview from PETA to guns is the most important viewpoint. And that the answer is the simplest common denominator since it's the "easiest". Some of those folks are right here....and what's more hilarious is that they're perfectly willing to be led to the trough of idiocy because it's the simplest solution from a "machine politics" standpoint even though Trump is nothing like the machine has ever since in the modern era. Adults with brains succumbing to oral flatulence because there apparently is no other choice. So sinks the republic.

        Old infrastructure is another problem. All the water pipes underground in SF are aging and leaking everywhere. They are replacing them but not until they need to repave the surface streets above.

          That's ironic coming from an Angelino that is one of those responsible for draining the water away from everyone else in California.

              In 2014, Ninth Circus Judge Jay Bybee actually decided Californians could only use the smelts' water if they got an exemption from the God Squad.

              In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court declined review the case.

                Nothing to do with an area being in a drought. Anyone one that believes that large parts of the western US have not and are not suffering a drought is an idiot.

                And why the sea is boiling hot—

                  The reality is that even if the God Squad did somehow manage to legally turn around the water usage, the actual process of making the courts the place to solve the water crisis creates even more of a bad situation. The courts cannot force the heavens to start raining. If the Delta is drained dry, the insatiable ag investors, largely from out-of-state, will find a way to suck water from somewhere else. They've been doing already by draining the aquifers so people who actually live in certain areas have to truck in water. They even use horizontal well drilling so if you live on a plot that has good water, they will come over and steal it.
                  Even as some "experts" have posited that we simply build more reservoirs, those reservoirs would be empty since there's already a drought (lack of precipitation) going on. Who ever gets to build the reservoirs can make some money but no one is going to get any water because there's only so much coming out of the atmosphere.
                  As for Southern Californian cities draining the rest of the state, it's definitely true that LA and Mulholland are responsible for a lot of past bad feelings. And if it were true that water should dictate where people live efficiently, then the entire Southwest should be bereft of civilization. Phoenix, Las Vegas, most of Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, even Texas, should be composed of nomadic tribes moving to whereever and whenever the water comes down. Or maybe better yet, we should move everyone from arid lands that are in drought to places that "claim" to be such superior locations. What happens to the local water then?
                  Oh wait, there's plenty of water around! Just open it up!!!!

                  BTW, the total urban water usage in California is somewhere around 10%. The rest? About half goes to agriculture, the other half mostly is in rivers in Northern CA. Southern California doesn't really have rivers; they're streams except in flood stage. It's a myth that the cities use SO MUCH WATER. HUUUGEEEE. SOOO SOOO BIGGGG. OMG, the words.......

                    How quickly they forget--





                    it has EVERYTHING to do with putting Farmers out of business, which has become a fetish with the Govt lately. THem and those evil, horrible Ranchers.
                    Its as if "rednecks" are marked for societal elimination.

                      Those guys are screwed because they're literally Johnny-com-latelies. If they had descendants from early California days, then they would have first water rights. As it is, most of the people are probably further away from the water and don't have full access to it. But their neighbors probably do and retain first water rights. It's a California thing and most people just don't understand it and many people who have farmed didn't realize it was going to be an issue until a big drought occurred. And at that point, the people with senior water rights get as much water as they can which means the water available is just so much less in a drought. The fish are just a symptom of the problem, they are not the problem. But an vidiot like Hannity with a half a brain is perfect for not explaining the problem and using the fish as a reason for the problem.

                          Yes there is a drought, however water management in California is not adequate due to environmentalists blocking dam constructions and choosing fish over people.

                          Mountain Man is right. Los Angelos has been stealing water from the rest of the state. You may not like the sound of it, but that is how the Northern and Eastern Californians feel about it. The California Water Wars have been going on for over 100 years.

                            That and California's political incompetence when it comes to water resource management.

                            California did noting to improve in-state water sources for the Southern half of the state from the 1950's on. Instead, they relied on purchase of Colorado River water that belonged to Nevada and Arizona who weren't taking their full share.
                            In the 1980's Arizona and Nevada began taking their full share and the first water crisis for Southern California began.
                            Since the state won't build dams, increase reservoir sizes, and treats minnows like the Delta Smelt as more important than humanity, they don't have the capacity to withstand drought years like Nevada or Arizona do.
                            Nevada and Arizona have had the same drought conditions Southern California does. Yet, neither state has had the horrible shortages of California because they practiced good water management and have steadily increased their access to supplies of water.

                              The unspoken thing is the illegals packing houses full of families, (four or five families to a standard house.) I remember a liberal buddy who changed his tune when a bunch of families moved in across the street from him...

                              It went from a place where you could park your car on the street to a totally congested area without any increases of housing...

                              They use water as well, Right? We just are getting massive over-population due to illegal immigration...

                              Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman
