Tuesday Tidbits - California Dreamin'

Today, April 14th, marks the 
anniversary of the Black Blizzard of 1935.
Does anyone remember (or know of) the Dust Bowl?
If not, I think we need a (re)introduction.

A once a fertile land
turned to dust.

If we don't learn from our history,
our future looks to be even 
bleaker than the 1930's Dust Bowl.

It's called a Mega-Drought.

The land has been over used... 
sucked dry by agricultural practices...
becomes parched.

Californians are told what
but I think this applies
to everyone.

The signs are obvious.

Drop the bottled water.
That's right, drop it!

Eat less meat. Damn you, alfalfa sprout!

But, some people
don't seem to care -

Looking back farther in history,
seems California has
experienced a few
mega-droughts in the past.

However, the hidden
player in this round is 
the effect of climate-change.

But, we keep looking
forward for a solution -
Using less water in farming...

Desperate attempts
turn to the ocean for relief.

Will we ever
find a solution?

What if there isn't a solution?
What if things are already out of our hands?

 . . . 

"This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill -- the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill -- you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes." - Morpheus, The Matrix, 1999
