Besides another commentators comment on how..unrealistic..using diesel fired desalinization plants would be, there's another much bigger problem if you cut water to California: A third of the country's vegetables and two thirds of the nations fruit and nuts are grown here. ( A few nuts are also born here but we try to ship them off to Florida or Texas as soon as we can) ?

Florida supplies most of the country's winter vegetables. And our voters are college professors, compared to the dumbasses in CaliFAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGULA.

California has no business whatsoever getting even ONE DROP of Colorado River water. With the few billionaires left (the ones too stupid with Wokeness to leave that communist shithole) can  pay another 10 percent of their earnings in taxes and desal plants could be built all along the Pacific Coast. A modest investment in this idea could flood the state with drinking water.

You should take this up with the court system. The Colorado River allocations were negotiated in good faith before you were born.

Desal IS an expensive way to get drinking water. The problem with CaliFAGula is the fact that the state's population is growing faster than the household of a welfare queen, and those residents assume water will appear every time they turn on a tap. Apparently that third world shithole hasn't bothered to compute the ratio of water needs of an expanding population (especially the wetbacks who stream across its non existent borders), and so a lot of liberals there wring their hands and are stupid enough to act surprised when presented with the problem of a finite supply of drinking water. Liberals were never very sharp with math.

The California of Governor Reagan was the best economy in the country and there was plenty for everybody. Problem is, a series of liberal governors not only put that fagg state in the red, budget wise, it didn't bother to take the time to run the numbers on the needs of an exploding population.

Personally, I think it's funny as hell. And those who live there who voted for those idi0ts DESERVE all the high taxes and misery that they live in now.

There is a good reason that desalinization plants have not popped up all over the west coast. Your bias gets in the way of you comprehending this.

So was Dred Scott V. Sanford. And it took a Civil War to overturn that Supreme Court ruling.

Oh, I know the good reason. CaliFAGGGula is a giant mooching welfare state, wanting to take another state's cheap water rather than create a source of its own.

Yes California has many nuts and fruitcakes.

Drive down I5 and I99 from Stockton to LA and the land between. Thousands of acres of dead farmland because drought has forced government to pick and choose which areas and crops get water. Arizona is facing the same thing as more and more people move into the state and urban areas are demanding the water farmers need. Never mind drought conditions that are compounding the problem.

Rising sea levels are increasing salinity levels in soil and threatening Florida farmland.

If you think food is expensive now, just wait.

So is California losing population or gaining it? Is it a shithole because people are moving in or leaving?  You guys can't seem to make up your minds, it's one or the other depending on what narrative you are trying to peddle.

Facts and data do not back up your claim. The colorado river water allocation was decided legally.. Guess what? the other states agreed to this. So there was no theft or unwillingness. Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada (all of which had considerably less population in 1920 than today)... all signed off on it.
