San Francisco Pushes More Standing, Less Sitting on Public Transport

In San Francisco, the city’s public transportation system is doing an upbeat rollout of a new layout for trains where seats are being removed so more people can be crammed by standing.

Less comfort, more crowding — there’s winning sales pitch!

Nobody mentions the cause of increased crowding but it must be at least somewhat due to [...]

Population Explosion Planned by Open-Borders Elites

If the powerful of business and politics have their way, America will be burdened with a historical high percentage of immigrants.

As shown by Census figures for 2010, the United States is already headed for a record proportion of foreign-born, even without the monstrous Senate bill which doubles legal immigration and hands out millions of work [...]

Isaac Asimov's 50-Year Predictions from 1964 Are Considered

When the brilliant futurist, biochemistry professor and science fiction writer Isaac Asimov visited the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City, he was inspired by the array of new technology to prognosticate about how American society would look five decades hence.

The Business Insider recently had a fascinating analysis of the many things he forecast accurately: [...]

Crowdifornia Has a Very Dry Year

On the last day of 2013, one bad statistic is the amount of rainfall for California; this year has been among the driest around the state, and the driest ever on record in San Francisco.

The average precipitation for the city, as recorded from 1849, is around 21 inches; this year saw only 5.59 inches.

Elsewhere, Yosemite [...]

Rapid Population Growth Returns to California

The failing economy of the once-Golden State has perked up enough to start drawing newbies once again, with more than 300,000 new residents in the last year. California had unemployment over 10 percent for four years, so October’s 8.7 percent joblessness indicates the uptick that is so attractive to outsiders.

In San Francisco, the tech industry [...]

California Rainfall Outlook Is Dreary

Water supply in California is such a serious issue that even journalists report on it.

Of course, scribblers describe the problem in terms of supply only (rainfall, reservoir levels and snowpack), never the growing demand (immigration-fueled population growth).

In recent decades, following a bad state-wide drought in the mid 1970s, Los Angeles installed millions of water-conserving toilets [...]

California Central Valley: Land Is Subsiding from Overuse of Water

West of the Mississippi, water supply is a problem. (Check out the Drought Monitor map, updated weekly, to see the current state of dryness which is concentrated in the west, not the east.)

California is overpopulated at 38 million residents, and several years of sub-average rainfall have added to the stress on water supply. The majority [...]

Population Lecturer and Physicist Al Bartlett Is Dead at 90

Physicist and Professor Albert Bartlett was responsible for instructing many thousands of Americans about the indisputable connection between population growth and resource use. His true genius was the ability to take wonky math facts and make them clear and even interesting regarding explosive human growth on earth.

Prof Bartlett practiced his signature speech a lot, giving [...]

California in Severe Drought, but Senate Amnesty Would Admit Millions More Residents

At 38 million residents, California is overpopulated from a water supply standpoint. Any normal reduction of rainfall for several years is now a source of concern that rationing is likely to follow. The state has had two years of sub-normal rain which puts a strain on water supply for drinkers, farmers and fishermen. Plus, long [...]

Los Angeles Considers Development Fees to Mitigate Traffic Congestion

In the Senate Gang of Eight’s immigration bill, much attention has been paid to the amnesty aspect, namely rewarding foreign lawbreakers with work permits, the true object of their desire, which is a topic worthy of objection because it turns normal jurisprudence upside down.

However, the legislation includes hugely increased legal immigration, millions more foreigners jammed [...]

Senate Immigration Plotters Overlook Water Supply

The big suits in Washington are currently licking their chops in anticipation of passing a monstrous immigration bill that would increase US population by tens of millions over the next decade. Jamming in a Canada-sized bunch of new shoppers should goose up the GDP pretty good, business types agree!

Meanwhile out in the country, the inconvenient [...]

Happy Earth Day, California Water Drinkers!

It’s been two years of below-average rainfall in the Golden (Brown) State, so water supply is concerning. The snowpack is only about half of historic levels, but new water users keep coming from around the world. How will newbies wash their lowriders if water use is restricted?

Below, California Department of Water Resources hydrologists measure the [...]
