A drought is a prolonged period of unusually low rainfall and its severity depends on the strength and duration. Persistent high pressure in the atmosphere curbs cloud formation and leads to lower relative humidity and less precipitation. In 2011, Texas underwent the worst single-year drought in its history. During this drought, Texas saw the highest number of fires, square miles burned, homes destroyed, drought-related deaths and agricultural losses in years. This drought encouraged the state to come up with a Water Plan.

They looked to past civilizations to better understand how to avoid ecological ruin such as flood control, soil erosion, and farming techniques. Even today, politicians and many in society are
The Tragedy of the Commons was first illustrated in 1968, by Garrett Hardin, which describes how shared environmental resources are overused and depleted as time passes. The Tragedy of Commons focuses on how individuals decisions and actions can lead to environmental ruin. One example that illustrates the Tragedy of the Commons is the groundwater of Los Angeles and the drought (water conservation). Today, California is experiencing a drought and we are limited to the amount of water we use on a daily basis. The drought has affected California in many different ways, for example, managing the water systems in California, water levels in lakes and reservoirs fall, and streams and river flows diminish.

Our water supply has decreased, and the quality of water also declines during the severe drought. Moreover, our agricultural industries have lost a lot of money because they do not have enough water to plant their plants, so there are thousands of farm workers that have lost their jobs; the California state also loses a lot of their tax revenue from agricultural industries. Furthermore, our environment becomes unstable, especially due to the loss of wetland, it impact wildlife to migrate from the dry and hot places to better places. Some of the environment impacts are permanent and some are temporary. Because California has encountered a serious loss by drought, our local and state government passed several bills to have water regulated, drought reduces surface water and groundwater so quickly, and it is very crucial for the government and all citizens to start to save our environment and water for our next

Snitow and Kaufman’s study was on the water crisis in the United states and the impacts it is making. People don’t realize this, but the water crisis has become more and more of a problem in the United States. Snitow and Kauffman give a lot of valuable information on topics such as making water private. This privatization of water is allowing for companies and corporations to take control of water rather than it being a public resource, like it is supposed to be. In the text it says, “The conservative agenda of small government, deregulation, and privatization has given big business an opening to create a private water market to replace a public service.”
