    Jerry Brown Worries About ‘Overpopulation’ Amid California Drought

    9:25 AM 06/10/2015


    Gov. Jerry Brown is worried that the Golden State will eventually have too many people for the state’s water supplies to support.

    Brown made the comments before the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Board and also warned that global warming was exacerbating California’s drought.


    California’s four-year drought has put huge strains on the state’s water supplies and forced a public discussion on state water infrastructure and how officials allocate water rights. Gov. Brown has imposed draconian water restrictions in the hopes he can cut water use of metropolitan areas across the state.

    Water restrictions have even touched California’s agriculture industry, which is expected to shed 18,000 farm jobs this season, equalling about $1.2 billion in lost wages. But even as thousands of farm hands could lose their jobs, California officials are still flushing millions of acre feet of water every year to protect the endangered Delta Smelt fish.


    When it comes to the Delta Smelt, state officials are in a bind. Environmental groups sued state and federal officials for putting human needs over fish needs and redirecting more fresh water toward cities. The lawsuit ironically came as state officials curbed farm water supplies coming from Mount Shasta.


    “It is catastrophic in the San Joaquin Valley, but it will also become catastrophic for large population centers, but right now they are down to where they can water their grass twice a week and they had to cut their use to 25 percent,” California Rep. Devin Nunes told The Daily Caller’s Kerry Picket in an interview.


    “That still allows your grass to be green and all of that. One more year [like the previous two] and nobody will have anything,” Nunes warned.

    The first solution is to deport all illegal aliens that the federal government allowed to enter the country and cause problems for every state.

    Send their anchor babies with them so they don't break up their families.

    Is this the same Jerry Brown who signed AB60, so that illegals can get drivers licenses in California?

    I'm no longer shocked by politicians' hypocrisy, but it remains disgusting.

    Today I saw a taped broadcast about California's water crisis.

    Jerry Brown, a.k.a. Governor Moonbeam, mentioned a couple of times the projection that California's population would increase by 20 million. He also said at least once that he believes we can take 10 million more.

    He also mentioned that some growers have federal contracts for water. No mention at all about any effort to re-negotiate those contracts, based on changed circumstances, a.k.a. Climate Change.

    Yikes.
