cue alien infestation in three...two...one....
so what do they actually DO when the water runs out?
We're still arguing on just how little water humans really need, so we can save water for our precious almond, rice and citrus farms
didn't know you hated Mexicans so much
As a washingtonian, i would trade the population of california for a coke
residential water use doesn't amount to much for California.
Even if we entertained garcets and lurchis genocidal hatred of Hispanics and wiped out all non-farming water use in the state, it still wouldn't be as much as almond growers alone use.
Seattle and now Portland is being conquered by Californians.
I recently watched San Andreas and while it was a shitty movie, seeing some of the worst places in America get totaled was pretty nice.
The answer to Lurchi's question is that they will move to the PNW, which is predicted to have some of the best weather over the coming century. There is likely going to be a megadrought starting in the middle of the century that will last decades.
So sorry Sexy Duck Cop, but your precious hot tub equipped Los Angeles apartment that mysteriously costs 0 a month and is "within walking distance to everything" is pretty fucked.
Have you read Bacigalupi's "The Water Knife?"
Maybe fix the antiquated water rights laws that are still wasting what water there is
The long and short of the problem in California is;
Farming is 80% of all human water usage in the state.
Farming is 2% of California's GDP.
Any idiot could see where water use needs to be catastrophically cut, but the farmers have good lobbyists.
So in other words, SolRo hates farms and would rather we eat Mexicans instead.
Even if we entertained SolRo's cannibalistic hatred of Hispanics and replaced all farms with squat concrete slaughterhouses, I don't think the plan would go over very well. It's a fine idea, but Latinos have good lobbyists.
As the Native Americans said:
Only when the last almond tree has turned brown,
and the last rice paddy dried up,
and the last citrus orchard plowed under,
will we realize that we can't eat hispanics.
Just popping in from the future, where water is still used stupidly in CA: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-36161580
