Record Drought At CA Reservoir A Warning Of Climate Change’s Impact On Renewable Energy

The water level at Lake Oroville, the second-largest reservoir in California, is the lowest it’s ever been. A severe drought, exacerbated by climate change, is not only impacting the water supply but also the renewable energy infrastructure. A hydroelectric power plant on the dam is unable to operate.

  1. THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THE OVERUSE OF THE RIVER WATERS , you keep building in deserts and growing grass and more and more people there is the problem

  2. climate change is nature ..if it could be changed by man then the scientist would be doing all they can to stop yet all they do is say the us must spend their money for the rest of the world ..thats their solutions is the usa must finance the rest of the world while the usa cuts back and the rest of the world gets to expand ..meanwhile the global elite buy ocean front properties and lives like kings they demand that the peons cut back and suffer for the greater good ,OF THEM

  3. not to far away from the sea, pipe it from the sea

  4. Just stop draining the dams….liars….

  5. What about Tesla Towers and Free Energy? Oh ya we can't get nothing for free due to capitalism. What about creating a high tech rain/storm watering capturing system and pushing and pulling water where it is needed? Within every Country? Oh ya we can't do that because there is no ROI and the profit margins are not there!!! As a species either we become proactive and tackle climate change head on or we will become extinct! Enough with the Greed for Money and power!!! I hate to call myself a human being when I realize that human nature and greed will lead to the extinction of the human species and the planet.

  6. I call BS on the Whole Climate Change Industry. Yes it’s an industry made up of energy companies, oil companies, mining companies and lumber companies etc which are all trying to profit off of Climate Change fear mongering. It’s the old sales con job of presenting the problem so you can sell the solution. I call it deceptive fraud. Let’s review, the black in solar panels is coal, the bio fuel industry is burning trees that produce oxygen, Wind generators require a base of 800 yards of concrete that requires kiln dried cement, and the energy companies are replacing old smoke coal power plants with new invisible smoke natural gas plants 5 times as large. They emit more carbon dioxide than ever before, you just can’t see it. None of these products reduce the “carbon foot print” over their useful lives. Now we have high tech entering the market with cars and batteries which are again not reducing carbon foot prints over product life spans. They require a natural gas grid to work. It’s the greatest false advertising program of all time. See Evidence:

    Let’s use some good old fashion common sense to evaluate this situation. First of all our atmosphere is Photosynthesis based. The miracle of plants and plankton converting C02 to Oxygen thru photosynthesis. All life on earth requires oxygen to survive. An important fact the climate changers omit in their carbon based presentations. See Evidence: Our atmosphere according to NASA contains: Nitrogen 78%, Oxygen 21%, Argon 0.93%, Carbon dioxide 0.04% percent, and finally trace amounts of neon, helium, methane, krypton and hydrogen, as well as water vapor. Nitrogen & argon are both inert gases so no worry there. Oxygen is required for all animal & marine life to survive on earth, that’s important!. Ah Carbon Dioxide the problem child comes in at .o4% percent? Yep way less than 1%! Are we capable of rebalancing? Absolutely! Which is the cheapest solution to adjusting the balance of gases in our atmosphere? Studies have been done, results are in. We basically can fertilize the ocean dead zones with six ship loads of floating fertilizer pellets to increase phytoplankton growth (photosynthesis) creating marine life eco systems. Only small areas of the dead zones are required to increase the necessary oxygen production to correct the imbalance. It also does wonders for dwindling fish stocks as a side effect. Which is the most profitable solution? Make everyone buy expensive products to “reduce carbon output” that don’t really solve the problem or increase oxygen production but in fact make the problem worse. Later of course they will make everyone buy the new improved products that supposedly work better. Think computer and cell phone upgrades. Why do governments around the world throw their support behind the carbon approach? It gives them more control over you and undermines you r rights. It’s the new form of modern slavery. Do some more research before you buy into the big carbon lie. Here’s a couple fun links on Glaciers and Sea Level Changes.

  7. 2000 thousand years ago people talked about climate change.

  8. If you are looking for a way to help the environment you can switch to ecosia they are a search engine that plants trees

  9. Climate change is fake, another way for the government to regulate your life. Live free or die

  10. So a manmade reservoir is drying up…..and climate activists are blaming climate change….
    its been a desert for thousands of years before that……why the shock?
    Its like planting a flower on the moon, watching it die and then blaming climate change……

  11. We are in the last days ..Birth pangs have begun . Believe in the Lord and be saved says the Word of God..Now is the acceptable time and today is the day . Repent says the Lord,for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The second coming of Lord Jesus is near.
    " I wilt shake the heavens and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come.”says the Lord in the book of hebrews chapter 12:26 .With sin rampant and increased wickedness all over, the judgement day is coming near. The shaking of the earth refers to the commotions among the nations that would prepare the way for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ..

  12. The wind doesn't always blow,
    The sun doesn't always shine,
