Water in California - info proliferated now is dubious

by wetter waterer Tuesday, Jul. 29, 2014 at 12:04 AM

Constant fear productions proliferate our minds and our lives, without many questioning. Water shortage is the latest catastrophe being hawked to TheAmericanLittlePeople who use a teensy bit for clean 3rd worldish lives in So.California. The attempts to cause more insecurity, uncertainty and Blame the Ordinary Residents, i.e. of Los Angeles, vs. the agriculture businesses in No.CA and the commercial businesses everywhere is the usual - YOU must be to blame and we will punish you for using 'too' much precious water. The break-up community aspect is for neighbors to anonymously report about another's water usage with the righteous pride of having caught a 'bad guy' slyly is like East Germany's Stasi's games - spies living amongst each other so everyone distrusts and worries and can thus be Controlled. Oh no, here too ? Water is scarcer than before but still available and drinkable and for cleaning, in individual lives, not just in money-gathering-places of business, anywhere, even in LA. Wonder about what we hear and read and then ask, how did we 'suddenly' arrive at this desert from which we dare not escape or move ? Question those who like to hawk their fear-wares and fame flames of scarcity, that then elicits herd-obedience in that fear place. Can this be yet another 'conspiracy' that is not theoretical but created for political or financial purposes ? Could it be ?

Many other discussions besides the fear-mongering ones on most local news places in LA are questioning the sudden surge not in water-use but in fear-explosions, drowning the media repeatedly.

LA Times published a front page article on Sunday 7/27/2014

"Calculating water usage a tough task" pointing to the incomplete data and thus interpretations of what is actually happening in this southern california desert.

California officials admit they have incomplete water usage ...
