In December 2014 NBC Nightly News reported on a massive amount of rainfall that fell in a 24 hour period. In Southern California it was 8” or more in spots.
During the broadcast an NBC reporter interviewed Fritz Coleman, a Southern California Weathercaster for KNBC who stood aside the swelled Los Angeles River and said: “All of our water – we sit and watch it run down the L.A. River and we go – see ya.” The reporter then claimed that in fact “85% of all the rain water that falls in Southern California is wasted.” It is not collected or diverted. It is allowed to simply run out to sea.
And why is that? Well of course – it’s radical environmentalism and the extremist policies they push, with the aide of their willing accomplices in the California State House and Governor’s Mansion.
Just as they do nationwide to our energy sector – forcing the closure of hundreds of coal plants, not allowing drilling on federal lands or permitting the construction of nuclear plants, these environmentalist wackos have all but caused the drought conditions in California.
No, they didn’t cause the actual drought. To my knowledge they are not gathering in field to perform a no-rain dance, but the policies pushed for decades by these loons have certainly caused the conditions we see today.
