Water, we drink it, we wash with it, and weused it to grow our food. In California, it’s running out. The historicaldrought in the West is now being felt in grocery stores around the country. Onthe left, that was California supposed to look like. That’s 1 year ago. On theright, that’s how it looks today. That’s right. 2/3 of the state is classified asbeing in extreme or exceptional drought. These are the most serious categories.If it continues, it will be the worst drought in 130 years. This will hurt youeven if you don’t live in California. Why? California’s 80 000 farms producenearly half of US grown fruits, nuts and vegetables. That’s more than any otherstate in the country. Some of those things you put in your grocery cart, you cannot get anywhere else. 90% of thenation’s supply of almonds, walnuts, dates, raisins, olives and palm XX. Theyall come from California. Many of them water-intensive, and water is in shortsupply. And such as Greens, wine, beef, dairy could all face price pressures. Priceincreases. So how high could prices go? A vegetable crop specialist UC,Riverside Mill MXXX told us this drought could hike product’s prices 10% overthe next few months. Law makers are preparing emergency-relief bills. But whatthe farmers need now is rain.
