“In North America, California is now setting the pace, and we're very serious about it,” Brown told a crowd of hundreds at a climate change conference in Los Angeles. “We're going to take whatever steps are needed to get the job done, because our future depends on it.”

Given the 3-year drought and reservoirs nearly empty even before the start of Summer this year, have things gotten that grimm?

"Nasa scientists have projected that reservoirs could run dry within a year"

Is (So) Califoria 'turning back' into the desert, and if so how will this affect our investments in the state/region... economic collapse?

OMG, not another California is dying of thirst thread.  

We're about to have a serious revolt over the rice and almond growers.  Hey, everybody, way out here in the desert - we're still growing rice.  Think about that.  What do we need to grow rice?  Lots and lots of water.

Plenty water here for big ag to grow crops that get sent to Asia.  Including almonds.

But, they want the residents of CA to cut their water usage by 25% more?  The population of CA uses 20% of the water in CA.  80% is used by ag.  Ag companies that send most of their crops out of the USA.

How does this make sense.  Yeesh, wag the dog.

The citizens of California voted Brown into office and now they get to live with the consequences.
