California Drought Sets State Officials on High Alert

If things proceed at the current rate, within two to three months, the state of California may be a parched land. A drought which has wreaked havoc in the territory may be the worst weather condition to affect the place which spawned Hollywood. That is why an emergency was declared by the governor, Edmund G. Brown. 

This was the same governor who saw the 1977 drought. That was the worst time for Californians. But with this new “situation normal absolutely fouled up” it appears that the whole shebang has reached the critical levels of a full-blown crisis. 

Already the salmons are not able to spawn in the seas. This has led to a ban on fishing and the fisheries are facing a tough time. The governor has even gone to the extent of advising ordinary citizens to skimp on flushing their commodes (unnecessarily) and not turn on the shower during the time they apply soap. 

Large reservoirs of water have been wiped out due to the scarcity of rain. The water dearth could be beefed up by bringing in some extra supplies from external sources. But for now the main worry is the eruption of conflicts between various people and parties over the paucity of water in California.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
