    A frikn man made one where ten times more people populated around it because they built that big pool. People wanted recreation and lawns and badda boom all the water went bye bye. And then they're all whining and I'm a big old meanie cause they lost their pond.

    CO2 causes droughts

    Floods too apparently.

    Don't ask

    Maybe there's a left and right handed version of CO2, one for droughts, the other for floods

    CO2, it is Ambidextrous.

    It's also very powerful, 4% of it is more dangerous than 96% of everything else.

    again, shaking my head and laughing, you can't answer a simple question. Again, did California receive the expected yearly rainfall, yes or no? I don't need your coloring book pages, just answer the question.

    Breaking News

    Governor Brown Issues Order to Continue Water Savings as Drought Persists
    May 9, 2016
    Today, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an executive order (PDF) that builds on temporary statewide emergency water restrictions to establish longer-term water conservation measures, including permanent monthly water use reporting, new permanent water use standards in California communities and bans on clearly wasteful practices such as hosing off sidewalks, driveways and other hardscapes.

    More drought-related executive orders are available on DWR's Drought Declaration webpage.

    Most of California still in drought.

    still laughing. I live in Illinois and we have similar restrictions. We're in no drought either.

    So you can't answer,

    Odd that these CO2 driven droughts are so local or are you just taking any news story and trying to convince us your almighty CO2 molecule is the cause?
