Californians are by far the biggest threat to the environment in the US. They moved to a place which is normally in extreme drought, sucked the water dry and stole it from all the other states.
California’s current drought is being billed as the driest period in the state’s recorded rainfall history. But scientists who study the West’s long-term climate patterns say the state has been parched for much longer stretches before that 163-year historical period began.And they worry that the “megadroughts” typical of California’s earlier history could come again
Stine, who has spent decades studying tree stumps in Mono Lake, Tenaya Lake, the Walker River and other parts of the Sierra Nevada, said that the past century has been among the wettest of the last 7,000 years.The longest droughts of the 20th century, what Californians think of as severe, occurred from 1987 to 1992 and from 1928 to 1934. Both, Stine said, are minor compared to the ancient droughts of 850 to 1090 and 1140 to 1320.
Californians demand for electricity made the air I breathed as a child filthy. There were many days when I could barely see the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
And then in their quest for more water and green electricity, they destroyed one of the most beautiful wildernesses on the planet at Glen Canyon.
Now they are killing millions of birds with their “green” windfarms.
California is a cancer on the environment.
