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.
We can clearly see a pattern of droughts throughout history in the United States. There is no way to control this, droughts happen all over the country, especially in the Great Plains, but we have never and most likely will never see a drought or dust storm as severe as the dust bowl. In the 1930s unusually cool temperatures were occurring in the Pacific. This created a very dry climate across the United States, which was especially bad in the Great Plains.
Due to this unwritten law made before the drought, Parvinder Hundal, a farmer that started his business in 1986 is feeling just how devastating this drought really is. In February, he received several emails from his main water districts telling him
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?
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.
In the past with the drought, we always had problems such as agriculture, water in wells, lakes, and rivers decreasing. Now we 'll be more have problems such as groundwater level declines, money costs, lands sinking, and that most of our waters sources are decreasing. “Several California Water Science Center streamgages have recently recorded streamflows that are below all-time record lows for specific days of the year”(drought impact). According to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab,“This sinking of land, known as subsidence, is a known consequence of groundwater pumping and a problem that California’s been dealing with for decades. But it’s gotten worse as the state’s become drier ”(drought impact).We always had that problem but now it becoming worse through the lack of water.
Out of all the explanations this one has the most evidence proving that the drought is the most logical theory. This evidence was found by a team led by David Stahle, who has a Ph.D. and a M.A. in Geography. His team made a very sophisticated study with the tree rings of the remaining trees that are still in the area. They discovered something incredibly surprising. In the summers of 1587-1589, they had the worst drought in almost 800 years.
In the article “Water Worries Grow in the Desert Southwest,” Rice (2013) talks about climate changes and causes that impact on water in the desert Southwest. The author mentioned Native Americans, they used canals and dams to bring water since 10 centuries. Today, there are 56 million Americans growing up in Southwest and they have region’s natural dryness. Also, Arizona state has less rain every year around 7.5 inches. In addition, Colorado River is most important to help 30 million people in Southwest.
water is necessary to survive for plants, animals and humans. and we are destroying our community primary sources of water by using too much of it. it 's predicted that water withdrawal will drains rivers and destroy habitat for many species of fish and wildlife. Cities like Las Vegas water is pumping from the colorado river,
All of the dry weather led to this severe water shortage which caused the drought. Even the little rainfall that came, was sucked up by the soil, leaving the people helpless and out of luck. When there was no rain, there was not enough water for the crops that were trying to grow, or the people who were thirsty. However, some farmers realized that deep under the soil, there was water left behind from the last ice age that occurred millions of years back. The water that they found underground, was used to water plants, that still did not end up surviving.
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
