In Detroit, the city is cutting off water to residents who are months delinquent on paying their bills. In California, water is being cut off by various levels of government because there is less and less of it to go around.
As reported by CBS Sacramento, some communities like the city of Mountain House are just days away from running out of water altogether – after the state cut off the only source of water residents there had.
That has led some locals to being sort of stockpiling drinking water just to have enough to live on, something most never thought they would have to do.
“My wife thinks I’m nuts. I have like 500 gallons of drinking water stored in my home,” Mountain House resident Anthony Gordon told the local CBS affiliate.
As the affiliate further reported:
The upscale community of Mountain House, west of Tracy, is days away from having no water. It’s not just about lawns—there may not be a drop for the 15,000 residents to drink.
“We’re out there looking for water supplies as we speak,” said Mountain House general manager Ed Pattison. “We have storage tanks, but those are basically just to ensure the correct pressurization of the distribution system. No more than 2 days are in those storage tanks.”
Overturning a century’s worth of water rights – something has to give
The suburb’s only source of the valuable commodity, from the Byron-Bethany Irrigation District, was one of 114 senior water rights holders eclipsed by a curtailment notice issued by the state in recent days.
That means the community’s leaders have to find someone to sell them water – to at least have enough, the GM says, to last the remainder of this year.
“We don’t want this town to become a ghost town, it was a beautiful master-planned community,” he said.
So were scores of other California communities all over the state, but with more than 38 million residents trying to survive a historic drought – all while attempting to sustain the California agriculture industry, which produces more food for the country than any other state – something’s going to have to give.
Some water districts think legal action is the answer. They plan to sue the State Water Resources Control Board on grounds that it has no legal authority to cut off some of the state’s oldest and most protected water rights holders.
That decision has put communities like Mountain House in the unprecedented position of having to secure water from a different source. The town’s leaders say they believe they’ll be able to purchase water but only for the short-term.
Meantime, others are viewing California’s worsening drought as more of an overpopulation problem: too many people, too little water and too many competing interests that depend on it (agriculture being the primary interest).
Some of them are longtime depopulationists, like Professor John Schellnhuber. As reported by Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger:
Professor John Schellnhuber has been chosen as a speaker for the Vatican’s rolling out of a Papal document on climate change. He’s the professor who previously said the planet is overpopulated by at least six billion people. Now, the Vatican is giving him a platform which many expect will result in an official Church declaration in support of radical depopulation in the name of “climate science.”
A new hybrid religion?
Adams notes that Schellnhuber envisions a “Planetary Court” guided by a new “Earth Constitution” which would hold power over every nation and government on the planet. As he explains himself in this document on HumansandNature.org, he’s an advocate of an all-powerful world government that uses so-called climate science to manage (rule over) the planet… a literal “science dictatorship” based on whatever “science” the climate change proponents can cobble together each year.
And now, it seems, a convergence between radical science extremism and one of the world’s largest religious groups has taken place – a sort of hybrid new religion combining God and Mother Nature. Ironically, the fewer members of this religion, the better.
