California is a desert. In the 1960s our great governor and state officials created the best water storage and diverting system in the world. California became a garden and supplied food to much of the world. It was and is because of a man-made system that California became more green.
Now the governor, the State Supreme Court and our president are more concerned that the Smelt fish get all the water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, despite the drought – made worse because they have shut off the water to the diverted systems. The farmers have suffered for years because of the shut off water, but because of a cycle drought, it is worse.
The president and governor have given the farmers a BILLION dollars but no water (which instead goes to the Smelt fish, then directly to the ocean). Food prices and shortages will happen all over the world because of this.

California was made green by a man-made system; California is being made brown again because of bad leadership shutting off the water.
