California drought

'We're not all equal': Elitists reveal how they really feel about 'peasants' as California devolves into suburban class warfare

By Heyes: (NaturalNews) As the drought in California continues to worsen, so, too, do residents' attitudes toward one another. Already there have been thefts of water, but it hasn't stopped there: The drought has created a caste system of sorts, with well-to-do residents reserving the right to use their wealth as a means of securing more water for themselves.

The emerging water caste system was on full display recently in a piece published by The Washington Post, in which wealthy Californians claimed, "We're not all equal" when it comes to water access and water rights.

California property values collapse as water shut-offs begin... wealthy community to go dry in days... real estate implosion now inevitable

By Adams: (NaturalNews) Water shut-offs have now begun in California, where government-ordered restrictions are starting to leave large communities high and dry. As CBS News is now reporting, the Mountain House community of 15,000 residents will run out of water in just a matter of days.

Drought-stricken California - Thieves hijack water tanks, siphon private wells, illegally tap industrial pipelines

By Huff: (NaturalNews) Special law enforcement task forces, believe it or not, are reportedly being deployed throughout California to deal with a new crime wave blossoming in what 10 years ago would have been a rather unlikely economic sector: water.

The water wars have apparently already begun, as police battle a growing "gray market" for stolen water, with thieves now hijacking water tanks, siphoning private wells and even digging under city streets to illegally tap into industrial water pipelines, according to reports.

Environmentally conscious inventor introduces device to save water amid California drought

By Heyes: (NaturalNews) If every person currently living in California took a five-minute shower as opposed to the average 11-minute shower, the drought-stricken Golden State would save over 200 billion gallons of water annually. And a new device by inventor Ken Wright known as iMShowerSmart makes it easier than ever for people to conserve water, reduce energy costs and ultimately help protect this much-needed resource from running completely dry.

Five pieces of evidence suggesting that California drought may be a HAARP-manufactured event

By Huff: NaturalNews) California is embroiled in a crisis of epic proportions as it continues to struggle through one of the worst droughts in state history. But emerging evidence suggests that the Golden State's water woes aren't a natural occurrence at all, and that a covert military operation involving "chemtrails" and other weather modification weaponry may be to blame.

California to begin fining residents for taking long showers while the rich use the last drops of water for landscaping

BY Wilson: (NaturalNews) Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) issued an Executive Order on April 1 mandating a 25 percent reduction in urban water use across California. The announcement follows the release of recent data showing that Californians reduced their water consumption by a mere 2.8 percent in February, the lowest reduction in water usage since the State Water Board began tracking the data in July 2014.

Catastrophic California drought causing infestation wave of rodents looking for water

By Devon: (NaturalNews) As California's climate fades to desert, rats are coming out of their hiding places in search of water. They are coming out to parks to steal water from dog bowls and attacking horse troughs in desperate need of something to drink. They are finding new ways into homes and becoming a menace like never before. Pest control specialists are seeing a new wave of rodents this year, and it's not just because it's their normal breeding season.

California's water supply headed for collapse in just one year; state has "no contingency plan" - NASA scientist

By Adams: (NaturalNews) Add California's water supply to your list of "things headed for imminent collapse." The state has only one year of reserves remaining, warns Jay Famiglietti, the senior water scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Caltech.

In a widely-cited LA Times opinion piece, Famiglietti writes that "...the state has only about one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing. California has no contingency plan for a persistent drought..."
