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.
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.
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,
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.
"I got sick and tired of looking at what looked like a pile of hay,"(Cave) said one of the residents in California. This woman was talking about using a spray paint to color her front lawn green. She may find that the sprayed grass solves her problem in her own yard, but everyone in California knows that there is a much more overwhelming problem that must be handled. Since 2011, there has been a serious problem of water shortage in California. Because of climate changes heating up the Earth and people using an extraordinary amount of water, California has become one of the worst drought areas in the United States. According to the report from PNAS, about 58 million big trees are under threat of dying (Woollaston). Some homeowners cultivate
California may have gained statehood on September 9, 1850, but the roots that the early Spaniards created, has made California the mecca it is today. 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
California and the Drought What is happening to california valley? It used to be green and rich with agricultures. Now with the lack of rain, it is becoming a dry state. Then there are the problems we are facing.
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.
Hurry hurry conserve the water before it’s runs out! Did you know California is in a drought? Animals and crops all over California are dying because california has been in a drought for four years now. The government is limiting the water uses to farmers.
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.
The cause of all this is the unregulated pumping of groundwater out of aquifers by California 's farmers in the Central Valley. As water is drawn out of these reservoirs, their structural integrity fails and they consequently collapse, causing the land above to sink. Once the aquifers collapse, their maximum capacity is reduced, so they cannot be fully refilled during wet periods. Less water will be stored and pumped, which is a major concern for drought years in the future.
People in this society believes every statement that is said by an important person true. In California, new reports has claimed California to be in a drought due to the waste of water. However, is California’s drought report an actual problem?
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
Article of the Week Response “The Wrong Way to Think about California Water” is an argumentative piece of writing that was written by Michael Hiltzik in the Los Angeles Times. This article stresses mostly about the mere fact of how people waste water; especially in California. The major drought is causing people to use more water than we actually need to use normally. We don’t need to use as much water as we do
