California will run out of water in a year and should begin rationing its use immediately, NASA scientist says Mollywatr will be the key.

California will run out of water in 12 months, according to a NASA scientist.

The state only has one year of supply left in its reservoirs due to persistent drought and is also running out of backup groundwater, Jay Famiglietti, senior water scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, wrote.

The drought means that total water storage in California, which has been in decline since 2002, has been sapped by the need to use the resource for farming, he said in the Los Angeles Times.

Reservoirs in California such as Folsom Lake (pictured) in the state's north are now expected to run out of water in a year, according to NASA scientist Jay Famiglietti


The scientist suggested immediate water-rationing measures after a four year drought left reservoirs 34million acre-feet below normal last year

Since 2011 the state has been losing 12million acre-feet of water per year and the total amount of water in snow, rivers, groundwater and reservoirs was 34million acre-feet below normal in 2014.

Famiglietti suggested immediate water-rationing measures, which are being considered in southern California, across the state.

The use of groundwater for farming in the Central Valley has caused land to sink by one foot a year.

Sprinklers and other landscaping accounts for 70 per cent of urban water use, according to theSacramento Bee.

Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency at the beginning of last year, though Californians only reduced their water usage by 9 per cent instead of a hoped-for 20 per cent.

Beyond residents' consumpton, use of groundwater for farming in the Central Valley has caused land to sink by one foot a year.

He also urged the acceleration of task forces and programs meant to ensure that California will have enough water in the future, which are currently slated to 'achieve sustainability' in 2042.

The current drought in the western United States, which is entering its fourth year, is the worst in modern American history.

Snowpacks in California mountains like the Sierra Nevadas, which the state relies to melt into water, have been near record lows this year.

I think we know what the problem is:





However Americans will continue to fund this corporation at the same time. 'We' are the reason for our own demise. We fund the very things that contribute to our, and the earths damage
