Water is an important topic here in the western half of the United States, because we don’t have enough of it. In California, we are in the third year of a severe drought, and nature is not supplying much water in this winter’s rainy season.

The Los Angeles Times has been doing a fair amount of drought coverage that can be worry-making (e.g. “Severe drought? California has been here before”), but on Monday it assured readers that 70 years of low rainfall won’t be a state killer.
Well-read water worriers know about the Medieval mega-droughts that struck the west from 900 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Among elites in Washington, population growth of any kind, even of stubbornly retro third-worlders, is preferable to a sustainable society. The reason is simple: expanding population causes GNP to rise, which looks good, even as per capita income of the citizens decreases. The idea of the country being full never occurs.
Yet even without a strong [...]
The former Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani, has blasted the President for the failure to build a modern system of infrastructure, largely because of an anti-energy agenda of extremist environmentalism. As a result, millions of people affected by Hurricane Sandy remain without power five days after the storm blew through.
The Obama administration and [...]
The Lone Star state is suffering a terrible drought, and as often the case, the issue is portrayed as agriculture vs. people, which is true up to a point. But while droughts come and go (along with floods), immigration-fueled population growth is going only one way — up.
Texas has known terrible droughts, like the one [...]
In California, Gov Jerry Brown and his Democrat cronies are trying to jam through a high-speed rail project from San Francisco to Los Angeles that has been a gold-plated turkey from day one.
When first proposed to the voters in the form of an initiative in 2008, the price tag was pitched at a ludicrous $34 [...]
Why don’t we ever get nice straightforward polls like this in America? It would be a welcome change if Gallup or Rasmussen would ask whether we little citizens think the country is full, but no such honesty of inquiry has been forthcoming.
Australians think their country has enough people, and therefore the policy that allows the [...]
Immigration-fueled diversity is on the march in America!
How crazy can a nation be to welcome the tribe that killed thousands of its own people just ten years ago?
