Default Candidate John Cox, Ca Gov, water shortage.



Advertise Here

While I was traveling about today, I heard a radio commercial for John Cox (R), candidate for Governor in California. He made a statement that I find pretty damn disturbing. To paraphrase, he said he'll end water rationing in California.

I have a relative who is in a position to know about Lake Mead conditions and the water that goes from Hoover to So Cal. I was told that even with the current water restrictions in place, based on a 5 year forecast, Hoover Dam is expected to reach a "Dead Pool" condition by 2022. That means no water AND electricity from Hoover Dam.

I'm extremely conservative and shocked to hear a Rep say something so foolish.

How do Californians feel about water restrictions? Do Californians even realize the dire situation in coming years?

There's no reason to ration water if they are allowed to adjust pricing to take into account scarcity.

Doesn't sound like a great way to win votes, but the alternative is worse.

Absolutely, Sites Reservoir would send more water from the North State.

I've heard the same commercial and he doesn't say HOW he would end it. Until I heard his actual plan I can't really make a good judgement. I would guess he said that to get farmers votes.

Cox isn't my first choice but I hope he beats the hell out of that empty suit pretty boy Gavin Newsome. That guy is a waste of space.

There are no good solutions to the water issue in the entire desert south west.

Even if you get a couple wet years to refill storage, Southern California is a desert, Los Angeles is a desert.

Over 20 million people live in a desert, and they have already stolen all the water.

The only solution is fewer people.

Deport the ****ing illegals and you might stand a chance.

Raise prices and desalinate the water. What 400+ miles of coastline with the Pacific Ocean?

Use all those free renewables. Its a simple matter of passing legislation to say all water must be from renewable desalination by 2025.

Before they start raising prices in a place that's already ridiculously expensive they should stop Nestle from taking 36 million gallons of water annually to bottle and sell all across the country.
Nestle had a permit to operate their 7 mile long pipeline to run the water out of the San Bernardino national forest to be bottled, that permit expired in 1988 but the forest service has allowed them to keep pumping the water out as long as they keep paying the $524 a year that the permit cost when it was active.

That's as ridiculous a situation as can be imagined. A region in America is experiencing an extended, profound drought and a corporation is allowed to pay $524 a year to pump 36 million gallons out of that area every year.
If anyone needs to have the price raised due to scarcity it's nestle, not American citizens. They're paying $524 a year to collect water they sell in stores for about $143,000,000, ****ing ridiculous, and should be criminal.

Cox is referring to a new CA Law, which will restrict water usage in households to 55 gallons per person per day.

The law goes in to affect 2020, and people are ****ed about it

If you believe that the Hoover Dam will be producing zero electricity in 5 years, I have some beach front real estate in Arizona to sell you.

Global Warming = Redistribution of wealth Ponzi scheme


Los Angeles County is trying to invest 3 billion in the Hoover Dam to siphon more energy from it.
A project that is expected to take 10 Years.

If the libtards in LA aren’t buying your Hoover dam theroy, then what are you smoking ?

Circa 1973 the city of Los Angeles implemented “water rationing”. If people used to much, LADWP would place restrictors in their meter to limit usage.

They need a fix? I got a fix.

As mentioned:

Deport all illegals out of the country! (Not send them to invade other states)
Invest in massive desalinization plants.

Can't find the budget? Try **** canning that boondoggle of a speedy rail line to nowhere.
That plus no illegals mooching off the economy should be more than enough to get them tapped into the ocean.

Northern California doesn't have a water shortage. Lets get on with Jefferson already.

water is a hot issue.
if I correctly remember the numbers domestic conservation really has little real effect. domestic water use is about 10%of the total use in the state. so if that 10%actually all cuts back 10% it is really only 1% of total resources. all that work, effort and cost for a overall savings of 1%. imo
to many drinking to much Kool aid.

A city I could see this possibly happening but the entire state? I don't think they have the manpower.

Just a few years back they put restrictions, in some cities, on watering your lawn. Most people followed it. Guess who was caught leaving the water running down the street from over watering. Politicians.
