Just got back this week from California. Had a grand time there with loved ones who treated me royally. Bless their hearts. How I love them and appreciate their consideration and kindness.
Still, there was a strange feeling of unease in the air. Something’s going on….
California is short of water again and that’s no joke. Residents are being careful with the precious stuff while the state is dealing with wild fires. Folks have had to evacuate and some even lost their homes.
I, myself, saw burned down trees and brush right off the freeway we were driving on in the San Fernando Valley. It was also hot, which they tried to hide from me with air-conditioning, but they couldn’t fool me. I’m too smart for them.
California grows much of the fruits and veggies we in Canada buy. Those groves of trees and fields of veggies need water. Lots and lots of it. Luscious avocados, so popular
with us now, need to be watered 2-3 times a week. Lettuce fields need to be watered. I just told you they’re short of that liquid. Where do you think they’ll try to get it from?
Aha! Think man think!
Naturally, they’ll declare war on Canada so they can get their unwashed hands on our glorious, clear water!
Listen, just maybe that’s the real reason why Trump withdrew his U.S. troops from Turkey and Syria — because he wants them at home so they can be well-trained and ready to invade his northern neighbor and grab possession of our lakes and rivers! Then, he’ll build a few golf courses to rub it in.
We must stop this disaster from happening. WE need to build a wall along our southern border — and the US should pay for it. What’s fair is fair, right?
P.S. I apologize to all my dear American friends. Just couldn’t resist being naughty.
Water wars could be a real thing in the future.
Actually, I believe it WILL happen. Love ya, Maughm
As a popular saying goes, “Water is Life”. I do hope that peace will prevail!
Ditto. Stay well Val.
I wouldn’t put anything past Trump. He’s the pits.
I actually have believed this is a real possibility for a long time. Regards….
Yeah, even without Trump as president, Global Warming is going to be such a horrible crisis that prob the US will need to come to us for water… All over the world there are water shortages just because we are using up the underground aquifers, esp in the SW states.
Then you throw in the disappearing glaciers, and there won’t be water in the summertime in rivers.
I wonder if we can get reparations from the oil companies?
Except that the evidence now points to glaciers actually growing in most parts of the world, including the Antarctic and Glacier National Park. Even NASA is quietly starting to say that. Here is one article on the subject: https://principia-scientific.org/climate-shock-90-percent-worlds-glaciers-growing/ Some very good scientists point out that we are entering a period known as a grand solar minimum, which has huge consequences for the climate. Have you heard of Valentina Zharkova? Her models actually predict severe global cooling! Whom to believe? I really don’t know, but either way, we look to be headed for some rough times on our little blue marble!
Opinions do vary, but I agree that either way, it won’t be great. Love ya, Maughm
Interesting comment as usual Chris: Reparations? Are you kidding?
And it sounds very, very scary for the poor people in California with the forest fires destroying homes. Horrible, viscous winds combined with bone-dry trees and grasslands…
I agree. It is sad to see the homes going up in smoke on the news. Imagine being there.
