WATER IS LIFE. Nestle and Oilers and Frackers = DEATH

Apparently the dead heads in government don’t know this. Well then, try this---- throw some big money bills into a blender guys and see if you can drink it!

We knew that the water wars were next. We can live without fossil fuel but not without water. The end game of capitalists is to kill us off.

Water delivery must become socialized for a start.

I was down in Southern California over the holidays and saw a new subdivision under construction in the desert near Palm Springs – 6,000 large luxury home, each with a full back and front yards. These homes will join approximately 5,000 already built and occupied in the area.

Of course this situation is not sustainable, since California’s weather patterns are changing and drought is becoming the norm, not to mention the billions of gallons of water required to fight the state’s apocalyptic fires.

However, developers seeking to make money will build, build, build if public officials – either stupid or corrupt-- allow them to do so, and the future be damned.

When state officials support projects to take more of Northern California’s water and send it south, one never hears about these water guzzling developments or the thousands of acres of nut trees soaking up water in the Kern County desert, the nuts to be shipped to Asia.

When the ducks come home to roost, and there’s not enough water to sustain life in California, by then it will be too late.

And a company called Cadiz wants to take water from the desert and sell it to LA?

WATER IS PART OF THE COMMONS-----WATER BELONGS TO ALL OF US ----WE ALL HAVE A NATURAL RIGHT BEYOND THE STATE TO HAVE CLEAN DRINKING WATER. ANYONE WHO SAYS THEY OWN WATER IS A THEIF.
