Ecology Lab California is currently in a water crisis where we are in a loss of water. Californians need a solution to this water crisis or else the entire state may be stuck without water to supply our water needs. Water is necessary in all of California to maintain a sustainable biodiversity. In order to survive, we need to figure out ways to reduce water use in California, which is famous for its farming and weather.
From: Mr.Jazayeripour the manager of Mojave Desert community to: The California Environmental Protection Agency Water is one of the necessary sources for organisms to survive in many ways. and did you know that (The United States uses about 346,000 million gallons of fresh water every day. allaboutwater.org-water.facts ) Mojave river, colorado river and underground water are the main sources of water for animals, plants, residential, industrial and agricultural uses. ground-water depletion is primarily causes by sustained groundwater pumping.
In the article, “Op-Ed In the water crisis, it’s time to move beyond the farms vs. cities mindset,” Nathanael Johnson informs the public that some individuals do not condone the amount of water that farmers consume, as opposed to the people who live in the city. People believe that irrigation is making farmers rich and the vast percentage of water that is being distributed to the farmers is aiding them. However, farmers need the water much more than the people living in the city because all of the farmer’s living is based on farming. For instance, whenever there is a drought, then farmers are the first to pay the price; people living in urban areas do not really understand the important of water, therefore, water is taken for granted. Unfortunately,
Climate Change’s Effects on The Mojave Desert The problem known as climate change is causing a domino effect of devastating blows to the Mojave Desert’s ecosystem. Resulting in damage to plants and animals. Given this, if not changed now the effects will damage humans too. Sadly, it starts the pain by first taken out the most valuable source to any living creature: water.

California is very diverse state it has desserts, mountains, and is next to the ocean. This creates endless possibilities for growth in many different economy drive industries to flood this great state. The major industries that have made California this mecca are the movie studio system, the aerospace industry, and the agriculture business. In my option the most important industry in California is the agriculture business, I will try not to bore you with my two cents on this topic. Agriculture is a major industry for the Golden State. With 80,500 farms and ranches, California agriculture is a

What will happen when there is no longer water in California? California’s drought has impacted thousands of lives over the past three years and now entering the fourth. California-Nevada Climate Applications Program states usually, water evaporates from the Tropical Pacific Ocean as winds transfer the water vapor toward the U.S. West Coast. Oppositely, in 2014 the water vapor split and carried to either North or South of California. Although, many people know of the situation, many don’t understand or take into consideration how to solve the problem.
Our beautiful 31st state, California, is in a major drought. What is causing the valley to sink more than it ever has in recent years? “Sipping California Dry” authored by Matt Richtel, goes beyond the issues at hand by interviewing the farmers themselves, detailing exactly what is happening in the golden state with pictures that show just how bad it is in California. This drought is a real issue, and the author works very hard to bring to light certain aspects of it that we may not know about in a detailed, informative way.
Have you ever sat down and watched the new well when you were watching the news did they talk about the California needs more rain.well they say that because we're in a drought and a groght is when we don't get much rain or no rain so that means are reservoir doesn't have much water a reservoir is a large natural or artificial lake used as a source of water supply.We won't have much water the reservoir was once full but this year 2015 it's only half full that's bad because one day we won't have any water.
Due to a shortage of water in California, the governor has proposed a diversion system to move water from the Northern California to Southern California. As for this will probably help since there is more farming, and more climate changes in Northern California. This will make a big bad and good difference.
California dry from all of its water people trying to sell or just moving anywhere else.The drought has been going on for many years and slowly California is running out of water.If the government of California does not do anything the people may start to attack farmer to get water or the government may go for the people.
The drought will negatively impact our environment. Drought is a cause of wildfire in California. Wildfires will affect to environment quality, property and lives. Drought leads to arid land forests and high temperature. It is a cause of the wildfire. California received lower rain and wetter less than average. It is one of some reasons wildfire in California. Another cause of the wildfires is dryness weather, wildfires are most frequently in hot areas where there are extended periods of drought and higher temperature. So higher fire season in California is in the summer. The forest is providing the oxygen and fight with global warming. It is also fight flooding, help flash flood and reducing property damage by block the flow. So wildfire
We typically do not give much thought to what we call “home”. We perceive home as somewhere we go after a long day, somewhere we can enjoy the simpler pleasures in life away from the restlessness of work. However in The Droughtlanders by Carrie Mac, it challenges our general notion of home for an unorthodox one—a notion that a home goes outside of comfort zones, rather than inside them. At face value, the Keys have everything: it is rich, secure, and organized. But by glimpsing outside its walls, we discover that those qualities can bring more problems than we see at first glance. Rather, home is somewhere that we can fully trust and agree morally, somewhere that promotes freedom, but most of all, somewhere that allows us to develop our characters and nurture
So many lands, farms, fields of fruits and vegetables are gone because of the drought. All this happened because of a shortage of water from once green and healthy crops to dead dry brittle crops that are abandoned by a drought. For example, we had to cut back on watering my lawn and it went from a green lawn to a dead lawn, because of cut backs. Mat Wiser said that, “ Water will become one of the defining limits to human development and a compound factor in human misery,”(2009 Wiser). If we don’t have water we will die faster without water than food, we can’t be greedy on something that we thrive and survive
