"The state of CA is quite literally bleeding itself dry (with over population) to sustain an unsustainable population that otherwise would never grow on its own in this state. But money talks, and Democrat Voters are a cash crop. (There are many companies like Amazon that propose that more immigrants, Legal and Illegal plunge into California to supply industry with cheaper labor. It hits on some points that are actually occurring)

The people of Chiapas Mexico’s southern most and poorest state drink more soda than anyone on earth. Every man,woman,and child drink on average 2.2 liters of soda a day. Many of those people have no access to potable water. The small town San cristobal is blaming the coca-cola bottling plant for draining all the ground water there. 8A49641C-5FB4-44A6-AC3D-2440C7FA1272.jpegEBC025AE-7995-4033-9EC9-353623BDFFB2.jpegA723620C-FF52-452E-8177-A4FA265259C2.jpeg

Does anyone here really believe that 'Coke' is the reason that a third world area in Mexico doesn't have enough potable water? Who here remembers the Chiapas Rebels?

95% of natural rubber comes from southeast asia, 85% of that comes from small subsistence farms. There is drought there and a disease/ leaf blights is killing rubber trees . The COVID shut down and supply chain is all screwed up and where many tire manufacturers ( the biggest user of natural rubber) canceled orders and held back moneys , it is said China has been stock pilling all available rubber knowing this will be the next global shortage.9B88C4BE-EBD4-4624-914E-E53AC8CD1FC1.jpegB2A66B9D-68F9-4037-A13F-1B2C5B66C9E3.jpegEAF8E0C1-5B79-4EC1-84CB-B40CE8F23BE0.jpegdwindling rubber supplies and snarled shipping lanes has forced Michelin to start air shipping cargo planes of rubber to France before the market gets worse.

This shortage is raising the price of latex so there is a lot more farmers in Brazil and Guatemala planting rubber trees , it take 7 years before a latex tree is producing.

So funny how we have all thought similar things. For years I’ve talked about the need to built a water pipeline system that can divert and move water from state to state as needed. New Orleans is in a flood, drain or pump it into a system that filters the water and moves it to Wyoming. Wyoming does not need the water but Nevada does. transfer the water to Nevada etc…

This could also be done with desalination plants around the country, feeding into the pipeline as needed, or used locally in the region.

Not only would a Nationwide water pipeline create Millions of jobs, but hundreds of thousands would be needed Nationwide to maintain it with the pump stations, filtration stations and pipeline workers. If there was an issue it’s not a toxic disaster as it’s just water! Also this could be revenue generating as they could measure the water a state puts into the system, and they could collect funds from other states that buy water from the pipeline.

San Diego has the San Diego River which starts in Crest area and works it’s way directly to the ocean. In the Mission Valley area, I’ve never seen it empty or even low. All the water washes right into the Ocean. It’s free water that San Diego could be capturing down by Sea World and cleaning and pumping back into our reservoirs or used for irrigation. I asked some politicians about this a few years ago and I got the “deer in the headlights” look! It’s like I was speaking French and they had no answer and changed the discussion to air pollution or something.
Having had lived in San Diego until 2003, I always wondered why there was not a resevoir placed where the stadium was, seems to flood every time it rains.

not sure if someone already posted this, but it’s a great (greatly infuriating) nat geo documentary on the true state of California water. It’s a few years old but still accurate.

Most of the hotels are kept cold as refrigerators with no front doors to close. Gotta have the fountains pools and golf courses or no one would come.

Its a good thing that the Ca state water project was built when it was, or we'd really have no water. The system was built for a population 1/2 the current population. The newest reservoir, New Melones, was started in 1966, and opened in 79. The Aqueduct that supplies LA and western Fresno County, from Lake Shasta, has largely been cut off to farmers south of the Delta, with 85% of the water going out to sea for environmental reasons. Farmer's allocation this year are at 0%. All of LA's water was supplied early in the season, to fill the SoCal reservoirs. The lack of surface water has caused farmers to rely on groundwater for irrigation. The mismanagement of surface water in California has created the groundwater overdraft in drought years. The CA water system was designed to sustain a 7 year drought, not uncommon in CA. However, here we are, 3 years removed from a 200% snowpack in the Sierras, in a drought, and the reservoirs are dropping quick. The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, passed by Gov. Brown, states that groundwater extraction does not exceed replenishment by 2040. We account for every gallon of water used, with all sorts of high tech stuff. Water is expensive and precious, and we know it. We need more reservoirs as the population continues to rise (open borders and all).
The party in power would love to see the Central Valley dry up and go back to the Coyotes, while San Francisco has an inalienable right to Hetch Hetchy water (a valley once as beautiful as Yosemite). Ag is a $50 billion industry in CA (2019), and a nation that can't feed itself has real problems. the SJ Valley is the most fertile soil in the world, and we can grow nearly anything. We farmers are facing challenges that most people would never understand- like putting everything you've worked for all of your life on the line, every year.

All the levees throughout the sac area are another time bomb. The banks were originally built with organic material and they have been braking down for a long time.

I will agree w all of your post but this line . W farm
Ground values way over what they can ROI with using crops the worst ending possible for most is to sell out for a huge profit . I support farming everyday but not victim class farmers .

Actually, with the high value crops grown, IRR is 8-9%, and properties without surface water are dropping in value quickly. Fair enough on the dramatic statement. Early on, 1 bad season would have done me in. would probably take 2 now. And no victims here, I'm 1st gen, living my dream. I just think Ag often gets a bad rap here in CA and I was being a whiny bitch.
