California Drought

I am ashamed that California has not built a new reservoir in over 30 years, despite population growth. I am ashamed we have three million illegal aliens here drinking our water. I am ashamed that we live next to the largest ocean in the world and don't desalinate water.

California is in a desert.  We have cyclical droughts, the present drought is not an anomaly.  Droughts like this have happened before and they will happen again.  Despite this our government fails to plan for them.

We rarely use gray water for irrigation.  We keep trying to take water from other states, but do little to improve our own water storage  ability.  We don't do much to prevent rain water from flowing into the ocean, rather than soaking into the ground.  We need to do a better job of managing our water; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
