This article discusses the severity of the California drought and its consequences. This impact on the US in general should not be overlooked. So much US food is grown there, and the consequences can be quite long term.
Has this been man-made?
It’s hard to say for certain, but we know TPTB can and do manipulate and indeed control the weather. I am satisfied that the repeating patterns causing the flooding in the U.K. and impacting Western Europe have a very high likelihood of being man-made. The low pressure cells have arrived with high frequency and then parked off the western coast of the U.K., pouring rain forth. I have also been watching the patterns bringing heat into Alaska and triggering the cold pushing south over the continental US. These have been unusual, repetitive and long-lasting. It is difficult to know what agendas are being pushed and when.
For the most part, humanity is a play toy in the hands of those who run the game; in large part a play toy to be dispensed with because they believe there are way too many of us. About 6.5BN too many.
