    The rain falls upon the just and also upon the unjust.
    But mostly it falls upon the just because the unjust have the just’s umbrellas’.
    .
    Actually the cartoon shows that growth can not go on forever, there are natural limits to everything.

    Well, if California had practiced good water management and conservation for the last few decades like Arizona and Nevada have it wouldn’t be having the problem it is. But, instead California is ruled by Progressives and Environutters who did nothing and even did stuff that was counter productive like tearing down dams on rivers.
    California deserves the government it has.

    You have an excellent point. And Saudi Arabia will be happy to sell you all the oil you need to run your desalination plants. And all that money will be ploughed back into the US economy. I distinctly remember when they sent 19 young economists to the US to help the economy back in September ’01, and we need to keep buying more and more of their oil so they can afford to do even more such charitable work to help the US.

    Desalination is not a liberal or conservative issue, it’s a cost issue.

    It would behoove some posters to stop being so antagonistic. The fact that the world has its problems is not necessarily the sole result of people who think differently than you.

    And there is a world of difference between assigning blame and initiating solutions, not only in the process but in the results.

    Arizona has a population of 6.5 million.
    Nevada 2.7 million, California 38 million.

    Small-scale desalination can be done with solar, but not on a scale that would provide adequate water for California’s current demand. The most cost-effective alternative is fossil fuels, but some people have unreasonable qualms about burning fossils. Fortunately, Nocera of the New York Times points out that we have dinosaurs generating fossil fuel faster than we can possibly burn it. So the question is, Where do we buy it from? Russia or Saudi Arabia? (Actually, given our needs, we’ll need to buy from both. So be careful about annoying Putin.)

    and how are they going to make it rain by doing that?

    I’m glad our drought provides such an endless source of amusement.

    @Enoki

    Just remember the next time you warm up your fingers to bash California (i.e. in the next two seconds), the 38 million of us provide like 1/3 of the country’s food crops and are approximately the eighth largest economy in the world. So, if we go down, you all are going down too, b***.

    Green energy isn’t wasted, that goes for the black oil and GHG’s that are several ways wasted costing more than we pay at the pump for.
    -
    Water wars is California? First with the law suits then with the guns. You just watch, the NoCals will demand to keep their water instead of piping it to SoCal. War is in the drying air.

    Desalination plants are very expensive, like nuke plants only not as dangerous.

    @Michael wme

    Just be sure to figure in the hidden costs of their fossil fuels on the pollution and GHG’s and health effects when you do that.

    Texas is still under drought conditions and that has been going on for at least a decade.

    Or maybe they got smart and decided to take care of their “endangered species” a better way.

    California is still in deep trouble on water. In the 1950’s they were talking about bringing down icebergs, as well as desalinization for POTABLE DOMESTIC USE. There’s no way to “manufacture” enough water to meet the agricultural needs of the state. BTW, Saudi Arabia has long had some of the most advanced desalinization plants, and use that oil money to run them.


    California’s huge water projects are running dry, and there ain’t much of anywhere else to go. But considering all the development was occurring in DESERT areas, not a wise decision, actually, in the first place.
