- Last week, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a
drought in California, "Water is like gold! We have to treat it like
- Jennifer Steinhauer, correspondent for the New York Times,
said, "The drought declaration - the first for the state since 1991
- includes orders to transfer water from less dry areas to those that are
dangerously dry. Mr. Schwarzenegger also said he would ask the federal
government for aid to farmers and press water districts, cities and local
water agencies to accelerate conservation. Drought conditions have hampered
farming, increased water rates throughout California and created potentially
dangerous conditions in areas prone to wildfires.
- "The declaration comes after the driest California
spring in 88 years, with runoff in river basins that feed most reservoirs
at 41 percent of average levels. It stops short of a water emergency, which
would probably include mandatory rationing."
- "A survey this year found that the state's snow
pack water content was 67 percent of average, and the Colorado River Basin,
from which California draws some water, is coming off a record eight-year
drought, contributing to the drop in reservoir storage."
- "This drought is an urgent reminder of the immediate
need to upgrade California's water infrastructure," Mr. Schwarzenegger
said Wednesday in a prepared statement. "There is no more time to
waste because nothing is more vital to protect our economy, our environment
and our quality of life."
- Steinhauer said, "Across the state, many districts
and municipalities are instituting or considering recycling, rationing
and higher fees for excessive use. For instance, Los Angeles officials
recently announced their intentions to begin using heavily cleansed sewage
to increase drinking water supplies."
- "Some cities and regions are rationing, some are
doing nothing and a group of people are in the middle," the director
of California's Department of Water Resources, Lester A. Snow, said in
a telephone interview. "The governor thought it was important to step
out in front and get ahead of this. It is in part to avoid an emergency."
- Steinhauer said, "A bill to require Californians
to cut water use 20 percent recently passed the Assembly. The bill, which
requires Senate approval, puts most of the onus on residents, and little
on the agriculture industry, underscoring tension over conservation between
city dwellers and farmers, who consume most of the state's water.
- "Across the state, many districts and municipalities
are instituting or considering recycling, rationing and higher fees for
excessive use. For instance, Los Angeles officials recently announced their
intentions to begin using heavily cleansed sewage to increase drinking
- Does anyone see the irony in California's water crisis?
That state houses 37.5 million people. It grows by 1,600 people per day,
which exceeds 584,000 people added annually. (Source: <http://www.capsweb.org>www.capsweb.org)
Governor Arnold pretends to instigate water rationing with people drinking
recycled sewage--but refuses to address the injection of 1,600 people daily!
Is that stupid or what?
- In addition, that number of people added every day adds
400 cars and other vehicles EVERY DAY to California's already gridlocked
traffic in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bakersfield and other large cities.
It's a living nightmare! And, it's getting worse by 1,600 people every
single day in California!
- Can you tell me why that's happening? Consider this:
America immigrates 182,000 legal immigrants and illegal migrants every
30 days. How many immigrants? That many people nearly fill the Pasadena
Rose Bowl twice! That number stems from a line that grows by 77 million
annually around the globe. It stems from Mexico, which grew from 50 to
104 million in the last century-but will triple their population to 300
million in this century.
- If you think California suffers, consider that five million
residents of Atlanta, Georgia depend on Lake Lanier, which stands on the
brink of vanishing. Ironically, Georgia at 8.4 million expects to grow
to 16.4 million!
- Does anyone understand that this nation immigrates itself
into irreversible consequences with unsolvable problems?
- As you write candidates McCain and Obama, please suggest:
"National Carrying Capacity Policy"; "National Environmental
Impact Policy"; "National Energy and Water Usage Policy"
and "Strategic National Sustainable Immigration Policy."

- Our immigration policy today fails us miserably! It
fails our culture, our language, our environment and our sustainable society.
In fact, our immigration policy kills our future and that of our children.
We stand nostril-deep in consequences without any water to drink!

- Final note: I am looking for thinkers, writers and advocates
to add to my monthly "Master Mind Think Tank." In reality,
our politicians foment the problems that they campaign to solve. They
never solve them; thus we spiral into deeper national chaos. I need new
ideas and new creative thinkers to help me bring our most pressing issues
onto the front burner: overpopulation in America caused by ceaseless legal
and illegal immigration. As you know, the recent PEW report shows immigration
adding 100 million people to our country in 30 years. We need to stop
it and we need to stop it now. Join me in saving our civilization. <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>email@example.com

- This three minute interview with Adam Schrager on "Your
Show" May 4, 2008, NBC Channel 9 News, addresses the ramifications
of adding 120 million people to USA in 35 years and six million people
to Colorado as to water shortages, air pollution, loss of farmland, energy
costs and degradation of quality of life. In the interview, Frosty Wooldridge
explains the ramifications of adding 120 million people to the USA in 35
years. He advances new concepts such as a "Colorado Carrying Capacity
Policy"; "Colorado Environmental Impact Policy"; "Colorado
Water Usage Policy"; "Colorado Sustainable Population Policy".
Nationally, the USA needs a "National Sustainable Population Policy"
to determine the carrying capacity of this nation for the short and long
term. Wooldridge is available for interviews on radio and TV having interviewed
on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX.
