  1. Climate change is real. Too bad all the epa restrictions were gutted by tRumpf. CA had it's dirtiest air since 1973 RISE.
    GQP built this!!??

  2. not global warming, not your SUV…. this is the start of a GSM Grand solar min. makes crazy weather… you can stop pollution 100% right now… the Sun dont care about that….

  3. Oh look, the consequences of the necessary and continual pursuit of profit by exploiting the earth’s resources caused by a capitalist mode of production. If you’re like most people and this is way over your head, you should look into so we don’t fking die. That would be nice, right? For Christmas your future kids can open up a present of Not Dead. They’ll love it, and so will you.

  4. I was diagnosed of herpes 1 and 2 years ago but no doctor could cure me until i came across Dr osaba on YouTube. who gave me his medicine that revived my life and today i'm tested negative to herpes. I don't need to talk too much about Dr osaba on YouTube but you too can reach out to him on YouTube for any kind of cure.

  5. Nature's revenge
    If we had respect for God's creation, maybe we'd love it enough not to abuse it

  6. The new normal… the stupidity of it all is this country could build a massive water management system nationwide to move mountains of water to where it’s needed. Yet nope… no one wise runs things.

  7. Too bad the last administration did not disclose what was happening with the environment in your country. Global change is real

  8. Oh so Oregon doesn't matter?! We are having drought here too! Solid rain for months hasn't been a thing since 2019 and the only reason why fire season stopped in 2020 was because we finally got some rain! But winter rainy weather didn't happen in 2020 nor in early 2021! We need the rain back, which has decided to move on to the Gulf and the East!

  9. There's NO climate change.
    As the earth continues to warm, you may plant your fields, but, there will be no harvest.
    As you once came here in the latter time.
    You will leave here in this time.
    END OF DAYS.

  10. And if it downpours, the first thing people do is complain that everything is getting flooded. Hardest species to please humans are.

  11. 48% of `merica doesn't believe in climate change; an orange floor stain told them so. Good luck doing anything about it, now that its too late.

  12. Its not nice to mess with mother nature ! When you transform forest's into deserts you get droughts. I thought these people had educations?

  13. Are you pronouncing "drought" as drout? Saying drought as drout is like saying trought as troffed.
    Sometimes the confusion of languages leads to a confusion with reality,
    and that can take you away from being in an awefull position.

  14. Y'all are killing yourselves and your way of life voting Republican. Hard to muster up much empathy.

  15. 인도국가는,천주교 관련 종교인들이 들어가기에는,(종교전파하면 죽게되는 일들)위험한 일들이 많다고 하시는듯 함.인도 국가는 천주교 관련 종교전파들이,몇백년 정도로 늦더라도,스스로 바뀔수있게,착한일들을 알게해주는 일들과,착하게 바뀌도록 해주는 일들로 해도,되는듯 합니다.관련 책들도 주는 일들.반성들과 속죄들이 되는 일들.이렇게 해도 된다고 하시는듯 함.
    God(our Lord),given this messages.

  16. to my parents the president of America and my citizens of America, I am an American, a failed product, America, who already thinks that the president of America is no longer someone else and the American country considers my country and I do not want to be disobedient to my parents, Indonesia has a bad impact on their world, they have no mind and mind They are still young to build ones whose functions are not bad for the world they cannot yet, this will cause chaos in America later, to the parents of American President Joe Biden and Americans we must act more to maintain good world relations, we are looking for solutions to stop the economy Indonesia until I go home that I bought Indonesia, sure regret comes later hatri, there was my comment before on msnbc nbc abc american youtube news, facebook ade munandar munandar was diligent in reading on the facebook wall ade munandar munandar is very important to translate it into English.

  18. Huh, how exactly did climate change cause the drought, which normally appears cyclically, because there’s been no actual change in New Mexico’s climate? Been no change in the climate anywhere in else in the US? Stop listening to these idiots who cite “scientists & experts say”, but never name the scientists or experts.

  19. Who was there before your family took it over? Why are you surprised that this is happening to YOUR land??

  20. Every bitcoin investor right now is just smiling at the price of bitcoin as it held strong and indeed valuable enough to generating good ROI. More persons are gonna become millionaires and we have bitcoin thanks for that

  21. Mexico is experiencing one of its most widespread and intense droughts in decades. Nearly 85 percent of the country is facing drought conditions as of April 15, 2021. Large reservoirs across the country are standing at exceptionally low levels, straining water resources for drinking, farming, and irrigation.

  22. This story tells very little information and details. Lake Mead is over 150 feet BELOW normal water elevation. Lake Powell at over 140 feet and both are dropping. These two lakes are the storage "bank accounts" for the Colorado River. The river will have one of its worst spring flows this year since both dams were constructed. Lake Powell reached 3708 feet elevation in 1983. It will be at 3525 in March 2022. They HAVE to cut yearly outflow from Glen Canyon Dam to prop up the water level. This will starve Lake Mead in 2023 so guess what? It gonna plummet in elevation too. Do you realize IF there is a low snow pack this winter/spring of 2022 how crazy it will get? The river is over allocated.

  23. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" – John 3:16 The Bible ❤ IN TOUCH MINISTRIES

  24. Ummm I live in Colorado and we have record rainfall since the 30’s… it’s green lush and soggy here… this story is a year old.

  25. Plants free of water deficit events more efficiently absorb available plant nutrients enabling plants to achieve their maximum genetic potential. SWRT membranes installed below plant root systems retain water where it falls, providing continuous delivery of
    drought-free periods up to 3 times longer than intensely irrigated control sands without root zone water retention membranes (Guber et al, 2016).

  26. WOW WOW 😳 WHY IS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA NOT TALKING ABOUT HOW GATES, FAUCI AND OBAMA FUNDED THE DEVELOPMENT OF COVID19 AND CHINA 🇨🇳 RELEASED IT FROM THE WUHAN LAB 🧪???? THE VACCINE 💉 IS A BIOWEAPON!!!

  27. Gee, maybe it's a good time to build desalinization plants to guarantee a water supply. Just a thought.

  28. Have you ever tried to figure it out why WE ARE HAVING A DROUGHT??????? I do know why we are having a drought. Just think about it and you'll figure it out. It's vary vary easy to figure out..

  29. Have no fear of a drought. There is an abundance of water beneath the earth. We are being lied to. The billionaire elites that want to control everything on earth, are not teaching Scientist how to obtain the abundance of water beneath us. The water belongs to all of us.

  30. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you'll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

  31. Wait until 40 million people in the southwest have no water and their property is worth nothing. Think that will make the news?

  32. According to our California Governor the State has a 70+ Billion budget SURPLUS! Just a thought, maybe we should build some desalinization plants…..? Ummm, just a suggestion?! Sorry for thinking logically!

  33. Let me guess, you cut down all your trees and replaced them with concrete and asphalt, drained your lakes, converted grassland into farm fields, and you overgrazed your ranchlands, and you want us the taxpayers to pay for your foolishness.

  34. I don’t know which is worse, building homes in flood zones or building homes in deserts prone to severe droughts. And you want us the taxpayers to pay for your foolishness.

  35. California needs to build Water Desalination Plants and STOP taking Water from Other states….

  36. California historian Kevin Starr said it all: “Mother Nature didn’t intend for 40 million people to live here.”

    It is irresponsible for California’s officials to ignore limitations on natural resources and to continue to encourage more population growth. As ecologist Garrett Hardin noted, “A drought is just as much a population longage as it is a water shortage.”

    Whether the last few years of diminished precipitation marks some shift in climate patterns, and, if so, whether that shift is due to human causes, makes little difference. Extended periods of low rainfall, compared to anything experienced in recent centuries, are natural to California and the West. Research into tree rings indicates that California experienced megadroughts from A.D. 850 to 1090 and 1140 to 1320.

    All of the state’s recent population growth stems from immigration. For the California Legislature to encourage more illegal immigration into the state —as it continually does by providing more benefits to illegal immigrants in an effort to blur the distinction between behavior that is legal and that is illegal —is reckless and a threat to precious natural resources.

  37. my qestion is simple. if we can run pipelines acrose the country for oil and gasoline. why cant we build pipeline to bring water in from the coast. to a desalanation plant to remove thw salt from the water. and put that water in low line areas. picked mathmativly to alow for the water to create rain in otger areas thowe following of weather patterns and time it tack to evaperate the hover dam collected water. but becouse of the heat. and the movement if moister to the north over time has coues a lack of moister to fall in theses places so if we put moister back in places to the south. and east. as the heat coues it to evaperate it will bring rain. one only needs to take thw data from are past. wher moister was. and wher it fell. and the time line of that data. so we can replenish the naturel cycel of mositer. evaperation areas. and fall areas.

  38. Stop trying to grow food in the desert, it takes four times more water to farm deserts. The central and east US don’t need irrigation, and have been having record amounts of rain, and are so productive that the US Dept of Ag is paying farmers not to grow food.

  39. The problem is that they want to raise cattle and grow crops in the desert. A desert is not a place to raise cattle or grow crops. Also they need to stop developing homes in the desert. We are trying to go against Mother Nature and Mother Nature keeps on reminding us who is in charge.
