The Drought Project (Essay)
The state of California is in the midst of one of the most profound droughts to date. In fact, it's being noted as the most severe drought in the last 1200 years. While drought conditions are expected to be intensified as a consequence of anthropogenic warming and increased evaporative demand, the disparity between surface water supplies and socioeconomic water resources is vastly maladaptive. Citing NASA data, the water storage has been declining since 2002. As of 2015, the state is projected to have only one year of water supply left in its reservoirs. The bottom line is, the sunshine state is running out of water.
