    I'm comforted that previous droughts have ended with floods and massive snowstorms in the mountains, but I'm scared that this drought caused by global warming could be endless. The upside of that emergency would be people leaving California, plans for thousands more suburban houses will be shelved, and water won't be wasted in fracking.

    Meanwhile, the Merced National Wildlife Refuge is not getting the water it needs - the farmers have priority it seems. Where will all the wintering snow geese and the sandhill cranes go?
