The correct answer is that the multi-year drought started and ended the way they always have, cyclically and naturally.
Humans can no more control temperatures, sea levels and storm activity than the can the Earth’s orbit or solar activity itself.
This extend well beyond California by the way -- it's actually a national problem.
On Nov. 12, 2009, Gore told the Tonight Show the earth was several million degrees two kilometers below the surface. He was only about 100% off which is as close as most of his predictions. Normally when someone is that far off they are not considered an expert.
Here’s (some of the) epic email suspended Christian sent his Muslim professor to challenge her flawed lessons
I think it’s great to be a theological apologist but not in a secular setting — I don’t know whether this was just a mistake or not so I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. In order to stop a textual embarrassment in the Quran from coming to light in class you proceeded to ignore the facts when I asked a pertinent question about Mohammed. He had an adopted son which divorced his wife so he could marry him and although you finally admitted it was twisted, it took until I looked up the verse that you believed me.
Your bias is blatantly evident in your misinformation about the historical Jesus and moreover manifested in the lack of discussion about Wellhausen’s documentary hypothesis (with you taking the theological position that Moses wrote the first five books of the Torah). No one takes either position that you gave in the archaeological or secular biblical fields.
There’s no getting around it: For a girl raised on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Salt Lake City is a very weird place.
I went to Utah precisely because it’s weird. More specifically, because economic data suggest that modest Salt Lake City, population 192,672, does something that the rest of us seem to be struggling with: It helps people move upward from poverty. I went to Utah in search of the American Dream.
Once I got there, I found that it’s hard to even get a complete picture of how Utah combats poverty, because so much of the work is done by the Mormon Church, which does not compile neat stacks of government figures for the perusal of eager reporters.
Trump takes biggest swing yet at Obama climate legacy
President Donald Trump will direct the federal government on Tuesday to begin dismantling his predecessor’s most significant climate change policies, with a sweeping directive telling agencies to stop trying to reduce the carbon pollution of electric utilities, oil and gas drillers and coal miners.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past.
Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries.
“Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said.
Every week it seems more and more as if San Francisco doesn’t really want to be part of the United States anymore. Perhaps that Calexit thing needs a second look…
Out in the City by the Bay, activists are very concerned that Donald Trump will be “George W. Bush on steroids” when it comes to ICE officers locating and deporting illegal aliens. (The fact that Barack Obama left Bush in the dust on that front seems to be lost on them.) But fear not, campers. The Social Justice Warriors are prepared to fight back and are training thousands of “expert witnesses” who can be deployed the scene of ICE activities and hopefully hinder them from doing their awful, evil work of, you know… enforcing the law.

Comparing any player with Tiger Woods has always been patently unfair. Only history and Jack Nicklaus are playing the same game when you consider Woods at his best.
That matrix hasn’t changed regardless of Woods’ continued inactivity or the ever-growing cast of would-be world-beaters. But as Dustin Johnson put the finishing touches on another seminal week any alternative comparisons ring hollow.
Since winning the U.S. Open last June, Johnson has won six of 17 starts, including the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in dominant fashion. That’s a 35 percent winning clip that includes a major and three World Golf Championship keepsakes to become the first player to claim all four WGCs.
Jason Day’s tear through the fall of 2015 and spring of ’16 is a fair comparison when the Australian won seven times in 17 starts (41 percent) including a major, WGC and The Players. Jordan Spieth had a similar run in ’15 when he won four times, twice at a major, in 12 starts (33 percent); and Rory McIlroy went 4-for-14 (28 percent) in 2014-15 for two Grand Slam triumphs and a pair of WGCs.
Someday, someone is going to explain to me -- rationally and logically -- why apologists for violent Islamists bring up Timothy McVeigh when trying to draw parallels between Christianity and Islam. It just doesn't make any sense. McVeigh was not invoking Christianity in his attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. He was invoking the memory of Ruby Ridge and Waco -- two questionable actions by the federal government that resulted in numerous innocents being killed. Neither one of those incidents had anything to do with religion either (the ATF raid on Waco was for illegal weapons and the FBI assault
Pardon my French, but what a steaming pile of horse manure. No one ever said that a single act of Mohammedan violence could shut down a great city; what shuts down a great city is its takeover by Islam. Has any city ever had its quality of life, art and culture improve by a Muslim conquest? The point of the recent attack was not to "shut down" London but to remind the native English that it's only a matter of time before their city falls, as Baghdad, Cairo and others have fallen before it. Like SPECTRE, Islamists have people everywhere:
