If you’ve haven’t been living life in a bubble, you already know that California has been in the worst drought ever for the last four years. We are told not to water our lawns, to flush toilets only when necessary, and to take either very quick showers or bring in a shower bucket to collect run-off water to perhaps water plants afterward. We have an ocean alongside our great State, but not a drop can be used for drinking or to sustain life (unless we start desalinating ocean water).
But the real story is how the water we do have is sometimes mysteriously disappearing. This past week we heard about how the 5,800 acre Mountain Meadows Reservoir (commonly called Walker Lake) dried up completely overnight leaving thousands of fish to flounder and die. The day before, people were fishing on this very lake. It’s as if someone pulled the bathtub plug during the night. Area residents blame Pacific Gas & Electric for emptying it, but PG&E claims they didn’t do it. Maybe they did and maybe they didn’t. It was the general consensus that the reservoir would probably dry up in another two weeks anyway, and PG&E would have had to relocate all the fish before then. Granted, we will never know if it was done to save time and money—or perhaps other culprits were responsible.
California has been beset by water thieves for the last few years. Numerous reports of water tank trucks pulling up to aquifers in the dead of night and siphoning off thousands of gallons of free water is well-known. Even actor Tom Selleck was caught and arrested for stealing water for his ranch.
So let’s looks at some of the villains in this water scarcity problem:
- GEOENGINEERING: To start, many geoengineers believe the California drought is a man-made disaster. They point to the U.S. military’s “High Frequency Auroral Research Program” (HAARP) for manipulating the weather, by seeding clouds with chemicals (causing chemtrails) to make it easier for their weather and spy satellites to function over greater distances, without interference, along the Earth’s curve. Unfortunately, this pushes away rain-bearing clouds. While HAARP dries out the largest agricultural food producing lands in our country, it makes weather more extreme in other parts of the U.S. (READ MORE)
- THE WATER BARONS: “Familiar mega-banks and investing powerhouses such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Macquarie Bank, Barclays Bank, the Blackstone Group, Allianz, and HSBC Bank, among others, are consolidating their control over water. Wealthy tycoons such as T. Boone Pickens, former President George H.W. Bush and his family, Hong Kong’s Li Ka-shing, Philippines’ Manuel V. Pangilinan and other Filipino billionaires, are also buying thousands of acres of land with aquifers, lakes, water rights, water utilities, and shares in water engineering and technology companies all over the world.” While the government limits citizens rights to become water self-sufficient, it has no problem selling “water rights” to the corporations and banks.

- NESTLE: You might love their chocolate, but they have been given free rein in California’s San Bernadino National Forest to continue bottling their Arrowhead 100% Mountain Spring Water in the midst of a severe drought. They are operating on permits that have lapsed and without government and/or environmental scrutiny. The people of the area are protesting this special treatment, but so far their concerns have fallen on deaf ears. (READ MORE)
- MARIJUANA GROWERS: “One of the other major culprits in California’s rising water thefts appears to be illegal marijuana cultivation. Particularly in rural areas of Northern California, large-scale illegal grow operations have been discovered siphoning billions of gallons of water from nearby rivers and streams. Many of these sites are operating out of state and national parks, where environmental damage is an additional concern.” (READ MORE)
- FRACKING: California oil producers use 214 acre-feet of water, equivalent to nearly 70 million gallons, in the process of fracking for oil and gas. Not only does fracking use up an obscene amount of water (which then contaminates groundwater), but it also destabilizes the earth and makes California more earthquake prone. (READ MORE)
- MISCELLANEOUS: This one is pretty far out there (only a theory), but since there have been reported UFO sightings around the Walker Lake area in the past, one cannot totally rule out possible ET involvement in the lake drying up mysteriously overnight. Many international UFO sightings that occurred above lakes have reported seeing ET craft siphon off large amounts of water. What ET craft might need water for is anyone’s guess. An Australian video, with multiple witness testimony (including local authorities), occurred over a Lake Gosford. Believe it or not, it is only one of many on the subject of ET water theft.

Every day thousands of Californians pray for rain. Even when a few drips come down, we celebrate. If we could only get rid of the thieves, the greedy corporate profiteers, and government weather interference, we could rightfully reclaim the natural resource that’s meant for all of us to freely share.
