Green New Deal: California To Cut Off Water Supply Over Drought — After Dumping Trillions of Gallons of Freshwater Into Ocean!

Last month, Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom declared a drought emergency and announced a new $5.1 billion “water infrastructure and drought response” spending package. The US Bureau of Reclamation reported in May that the 2021 water year for the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Basin is currently the driest since 1977, but the year is only half over.

While California is having a dry year, California has been dumping TRILLIONS of gallons of freshwater into the oceans in recent years to protect a non-endangered bait fish called the Delta Smelt. A Central Valley Farmer said, “Our reservoirs were designed to provide a steady five year supply for all users, and were filled to the top in June 2019.” She said that by emptying reservoirs, California is on track to have a man-made drought crisis every time there is a dry season.

“The 2021 water year for the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Basin is currently the driest since 1977,” the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation warned in May.

Additionally, all residents are being asked to conserve their water consumption.

But how did this drought really start?

In recent years, California has been dumping TRILLIONS of gallons of freshwater into the oceans to protect a non-endangered bait fish called the Delta Smelt.

And that practice of emptying the reservoirs is continuing to this day, according to Central Valley Farmer Kristi Diener.

“Are we having a dry year? Yes,” Diener said. “That is normal for us. Should we be having water shortages in the start of our second dry year? No. Our reservoirs were designed to provide a steady five year supply for all users, and were filled to the top in June 2019.”

“How can this year be the driest year on record when it has more than 7 months left? That’s just fake news and crisis creation.”

“Before our magnificent reservoir projects were built, California never had a steady and reliable supply of water. Now water is being managed as if those reserves don’t exist, by emptying the collected water from storage to the sea, rather than saving it for our routinely dry years,” Diener explained.

“Our water projects were designed to be managed for the long term providing a minimum five-year supply, but California has now put us on track to have a man-made drought crisis every time we don’t have a wet season,” she added.

Once again, the Democrats appear to be creating the very crisis they themselves are claiming to address by spending more money the state doesn’t have in the name of saving the environment.

Federal Appeals Court Finds CDC Eviction Moratorium Unlawful

July 27, 2021 MSN 2

A federal appeals court ruled that the CDC exceeded its authority by temporarily halting evictions amid the pandemic. The moratorium is set to expire at the end of July. Landlords argue that the moratorium amounts to unlawful government overreach that costs property owners $13 billion each month.

I’m so saddened its come to this. This means extremely high costs ‘n shortages. Melbourne Australia is looking at August, I think stage 5 Martial law shut downs ‘n curfews.
