Despite recent “spring showers,” California is in a desperate drought. There are many rivers without adequate flow for young salmon to make their way to the ocean. The state is actually trucking these fish from their birthplaces up river to the delta so they can safely migrate out to sea. It is so despairing, farmers are pulling out trees because there is not enough water to support them…trees that take $1,000’s and $1,000’s to plant and years to grow. When rain does finally return to the state, it will be a long recovery for the entire nation. The attached graphic depicts the dependence on California grown nuts, fruits and vegetables.
