The "drought" in California is not due to government interference because of the "endangered" Delta Smelt. No no no, you bad people, COWS did it. Yes they did, the New York Times says so.Money quote, waaaay down at the bottom after you get past a whole lot of "hundreds of thousands of gallons per ton" bullshit is this:
Meat Makes the Planet ThirstyBy JAMES MCWILLIAMS MARCH 7, 201
It’s understandable for concerned consumers to feel helpless in the face of these complex industrial and global realities. But in the case of agriculture and drought, there’s a clear and accessible action most citizens can take: reducing or, ideally, eliminating the consumption of animal products. Changing one’s diet to replace 50 percent of animal products with edible plants like legumes, nuts and tubers results in a 30 percent reduction in an individual’s food-related water footprint. Going vegetarian, a better option in many respects, reduces that water footprint by almost 60 percent.
See, its important to understand that this drought, and all the displaced farm workers and all the social injustice in California is YOUR FAULT, America! If you would only give up your horrible Redneck ways, particularly the disgusting practice of eating poor helpless animals and become a wholesome, morally and politically correct liberal Vegan like Mr. James McWilliams, then you could atone for your sins and reach Enlightenment.
Or possibly suffer a slow decline from protein starvation and vitamin deficiency, which is what usually happens to pinheaded liberals who become Vegans. I think the fact that there is even a word like "Vegan" in our modern lexicon is entirely due to propaganda from the Caring Left, and is yet another demonstration that there's a sucker born every minute.
Sadly, my caring liberal friends, Human Beings are omnivorous for quite a few really good reasons. Chemistry and physics are what you call "inflexible boundaries" in the sciences. A purely vegetarian diet violates quite a few of those boundaries.
Here's another inflexible boundary that's been violated: The Imperial Valley of California is THE most productive agricultural area on Planet Earth, by a looooong way. The -entire- reason there is a drought in California has nothing to do with rainfall. The reason is the Greenies have decided that fish and birds are more important than human beings, Greenies have taken over the water management systems of California AND the federal system as well, and Greenies have wasted the stored water on increased flow through the creeks and rivers instead of storing it and spending it on agriculture the way they were supposed to.
The reason there are dams and reservoirs in California at all is because the place is an uninhabitable DESERT, and without water it will return to its previous uninhabitable state. That is I believe the main goal of Greenies generally and the ones infesting the California state government in particular. To destroy human habitation wherever it is found, and return the land to its primeval condition.
No word on what they plan to do when the Russians and the Chicoms move in to the deserted territories and put up coal fired generating stations all over the place.
