In 100 hundred words or less Base, what is your take on the hazard of toxic contamination of water?

Low risk? high? localized rare? very or moderately controlable?

How many explicitly endorse the position that more than half of the global warming since 1950 was man-made?

More than one percent?

Go China:

Last month, China’s State Council announced a new action plan to combat air pollution, which included a prohibition of new coal-fired power plants in the three most important metropolitan areas around Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou (known as the “key-three city clusters”).This followed a previous announcement of a $275 billion investment by the central government in improving air quality. The action plan aims to tackle the increasingly severe air pollution problem in China, which is largely caused by its massive consumption of coal.

Hazardous containment water? I don't know much.

If you are referring to flow back frack load water, it is now cheaper to recycle it and use it over and over again. Early on, some states without a big oil and gas presence did all sorts of crazy stuff with it, such as salting roads. You would go to prison in any of the main production states if you did that.

The biggest problem with that water is that it is high in chlorides. Saltwater contamination is one of the worst pollutants around. It isn't toxic to humans, but it certainly is with plants. A saltwater spill is harder to clean up than an oil spill when on shore.

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.

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

 We buy local organic and grow lots of our own stuff/eggs poultry etc.

 Gasoline is dropping and will continue to do so.

 The fishing on the OR (Upper and Lower) hasn't been better. Finger couldn't be wetter.


So, no worries at all here in the "wash" under the Whites. All is good to go. Situation AOK!




HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!


Oh, and don't forget, this is THE NORM!!!!


Severe Ancient Droughts: A Warning to California
By WILLIAM K. STEVENS
Published: July 19, 1994

BEGINNING about 1,100 years ago, what is now California baked in two droughts, the first lasting 220 years and the second 140 years. Each was much more intense than the mere six-year dry spells that afflict modern California from time to time, new studies of past climates show. The findings suggest, in fact, that relatively wet periods like the 20th century have been the exception rather than the rule in California for at least the last 3,500 years, and that mega-droughts are likely to recur.

I heard it on the Radio Chiloe. You can look it up-- it was from NASA. There are too many links of that nature and i have no idea what title it was.

You fear mongering TARDS are worse then them "Rapture freaks".


Seriously.



If it was pouring rain/snow and flooding the valleys, LA, Freadkville Bay Area etc, the Merced overflowing in the Valley and washing out 120, Sac River flooding the Sac area etc etc , you fuktards would be whinning and crying about that.

it was either the Tom sullivan show or another on 99.1.. Can not remember, but the gist is that the tectonic plate activities are pushing the lows easterly and away from the western regions which in turn makes the dive of the northern weather systems deeper in the trough- although farther to the east. Totally made sense. Thus the reason for our current drought in much of the west.

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.
