California

6 Shocking images that show severity of CA drought, and what it means to you and me

We can fly to the moon, but we can’t anticipate a drought caused by our own daily practices? I don’t think so.

Either this crisis was brought about through careless and reckless disregard for the continuity of our nations food supply, or it was carefully and deliberately engineered to disrupt it.

Just to give you an idea of how important California is to food production in the US:

[A] loss of California ag production would hit hard consumers’ wallets and their diets would become less balanced.This is because our state produces a sizable majority of American fruits, vegetables and nuts; 99 percent of walnuts, 97 percent of kiwis, 97 percent of plums, 95 percent of celery, 95 percent of garlic, 89 percent of cauliflower, 71 percent of spinach, and 69 percent of carrots and the list goes on and on. A lot of this is due to our soil and climate. No other state, or even a combination of states, can match California’s output per acre.
