A major and unyielding drought in California is causing concern in the nation's "food basket," as farmers there say the U.S. food supply could be hit hard if the conditions in their state don't rapidly improve.

"This is the driest year in 100 years, says grower Joe Del Bosque, expressing concern that the hundreds of workers he employs for each year's harvest could be without a job this season.

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, 2013 was the driest on record for most areas of California, "smashing previous record dry years" across the state, including regions where approximately half the fruits, vegetables and nuts in the U.S. are grown.

Those conditions have not relented as 2014 begins with most of the state experiencing official 'severe' or 'extreme drought' conditions.



Get ready for food prices to respond--and like The Chief says, ready to adapt.


Hey The Chief, can you go stick your finger in the lake again and comfort us, by telling us in your knowing way, that there is no drought.

^^^^which is being caused by pacific tectonic plate activities..
C'mon, Ron, you've declared this twice now -- back it up.

Totally made sense.
The current western drought being caused by tectonic activities makes no sense to me. But I'm curious whether anyone can figure out what Ron actually heard.

"Totally made sense."


So, these plates are moving so fast that they disrupt our weather patterns?

Yes, totally makes sense. Just like rick sumner makes sense.

My well just got checked yesterday.... 106% and the feed rate is normal.


Right on queue, The Chief. Nice to know your finger is wet.



So now that's settled, there is no drought in California. Thanks for contributing The Chief.

Oh hi Dave.

Don't fret, you're probably still among the top five fooking idiots here. You've got stiff competition, but I have faith your utter fooking stoopidity will shine through.

Wow. Ron. Are you serious? You think that plate tectonics is changing the weather?

It actually has affected the weather in the past, but those changes were far too slow to measure in human-time scale.

We are discussing inches of movement per year. Unless you have a super big volcanic eruption, structural geology has little to do with weather. Nothing happens fast, anyway.

Back and catching up. Interesting exchange between the professor and the oil man over the initial 2005 article about reserves and estimated production costs, but it's so yesterday. Anyway, if the rabid enviro types could be cleansed from positions of influence where they exercise extortion and out right lies to enhance their funding stream then perhaps an avenue of cooperation could be opened to our energy future. Natural gas and nuclear are our bridge energies to the imagined promised land of completely safe and clean fuels and electrical generation. If an all out worldwide effort to produce gas from all sources, conventional and otherwise, were coupled with coals replacement with gas in powerplants and converting all commercial vehicles from gasoline to cng, while simultaneously dispelling the paranoia over nuclear we could get very meaningful reductions in anthro plant food (CO2). There has been some testing going on in Canada, Alaska's north slope, and Japan on technologies to unlock methane hydrates (by some estimates methane hydrates rival or exceed all conventional sources) in economically feasible quantity. Below is some info on Japans ongoing program.

Skills?

Yes, skills. As in, it looks good, is clever, and makes a good point illustrating what a laughable asshat you are. Butt jokes made in an unprofessional, childlike scrawl would clearly fall more in your bailiwick, for a point of contrast.
