|A hydroelectric dam had to be shut down in California. Something people might not have thought of because the West is going dry.|
|With Lake Powell https://www.yahoo.com/finance/m/2798a521-d45b-3070-b7c0-7f66b3f264a6/lake-powell-dips-to-historic.html, it feeds Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam https://www.azcentral.com/in-depth/news/local/arizona-environment/2021/05/27/hoover-dam-drought-water-levels-lake-mead/5134031001/. With the reservoir behind Hoover Dam clearly showing that its water level has significantly dropped, it's possible that in the West that more hydroelectric dams will have to be taken offline. |
As is mentioned in the 2nd link, the water for hydroelectric dams is also used for residential and agricultural purposes.
Am sorry ya'all, am just bored. Who knows, maybe the research that I've been pursuing might allow for "clean" coal and improved sea water desalination. And that's just by improving the common solar panel. It would allow for energy to be removed from one source which would decrease the amount of energy necessary for the system in question to function. ie., decrease the amount of "new" energy into a system where;
p.s., if work is done on the system then it's q + (-w). A negative number is less than 0. Basically a better solar panel could recycle heat that changes the state of matter.

|Why worry about California? They are just being punish for their wicked, nasty ways. It a sign from god, and a warning for all the other democrat states. They want to preserve their disgusting lifestyle choices, over survival. Instead of expending the time, money, and labor to manage their resources, and mitigate the impact, the just want to have 'fun', in the most perverse ways.|
|The Hoover Dam also provides electricity of both Arizona and Nevada. And as someone mentioned, why try to create jobs in America? We simply don't need them. And if made in the USA, could they be exported? Who cares, right?|
Kind of why I don't understand Americans. It was manufacturing that allowed for the Middle Class. And now that has been disappearing because jobs are being exported in too large of a number.
p.s., this image is from Florida. I think it's called "Twin Moons Over the Beach".

It might be a matter of interest if it were someplace with more credibility, like the peanut gallery, for example.

It is inappropriate to blame Mother Nature for California's mandatory mismanagement.

I'm on about a lot more than just that. For all we know the thermohaline circulation is slowing as a result of tectonic plate rebound. And this is what's causing weather patterns in the western US to change.
To give you a clue as to how I think, I was in a desalination forum and made some friends with a couple of guys who live in Cairo, Egypt. I asked them what they thought life might be like in 4,000 years. They didn't understand the question.
And then I reminded them that 4,000 years ago Egyptians were building pyramids. And there are Egyptians today. So in the year 6,000 A.C.E., what will life be like on Earth? What you see now is the result of 4,000 years of change.
Simply put, we can shape the future.
