Rain of terror

RM, a faithful reader, sent this clipping on a "rain free January," which concludes:
2015 is shaping up as a year that will threaten California urban areas, agriculture and environment alike. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Californians should hunker down and get ready for them.
That's a terrifying thought, but what can we do about it?
  1. Some people would say "drill deeper and expel the illegal aliens"
  2. Others would say "shower with a friend"
  3. The remaing majority would say "what water problem? Didja see the Superbowl?"
The sad fact is not the majority's indifference and ignorance -- it is that Californians -- and many other people in the world -- find themselves in dire straights after failing to live within limits, buffers or even rational acknowledgement of reality.

Bottom Line: Nature makes a drought, man makes a shortage, and fools ignore their role in creating problems.
