A reader emailed me, "Mr. Wooldridge, everything you write about on immigration, population and environment is coming true. It makes me sick for my children."

NBC anchor Brian Williams said last Friday, "Meteorologists reported that 62 percent of California suffers from extreme drought.   That state stands in the middle of a water emergency."

Additionally, forest fires rage across the state while burning down homes and schools in their path.

If you look back on my Part 4 of "What America will look like in 2050--acute water predicament", I talked about seven states in 2014 suffering from water shortages.

My question: why do hundreds of thousands of people build houses in fire burn-zones?   Answer: because California proves our most overpopulated state, 38 million people forces them to encroach on the wilderness without pause.   Amazingly, California faces an added 20 million people to smother more of the land with houses, asphalt, concrete, malls, airports, schools and accelerating air pollution.

Most of what I address in my columns manifests faster than I imagined.   In my book, America on the Brink: The Next Added 100 Million Americans, leads off with California being the "Bow of the Titanic of America."  

Why? Answer: within 30 years, California will absorb over 20 million more people; 90 percent of them from legal immigration.

If they suffer extreme drought in 2014 replete with forest fires and water shortages for their 38 million residents, can you imagine what California faces in three decades when they jump from 38 million to 58 million?

Does anyone in the media or Washington DC understand the "enormity" of our predicament?   Answer: not a chance. Williams, Sawyer, Pelley, Blitzer, Charlie Rose, David Gregory, Shepard Smith, 60 Minutes producers and the rest of them run like scalded rabbits away from the population-immigration issue.

Yet, it's coming and it's coming fast.   Senate Bill 744, the amnesty for 12-20 million undocumented migrants, increased legal immigration from 1 million to 2 million annually.   If California's problems aren't bad enough already, Washington politicians and Obama vote to make them doubly worse doubly fast.

Almost 99 percent of California faces abnormally dry weather or worse; almost two-thirds of the state suffers extreme drought. The year 2013 became the driest year on record in California.

  "I think the drought emphasizes that we do live in an era of limits, that nature has its boundaries."

-- Gov. Jerry Brown, California

 

Brown urged voluntary water conservation to the tune of a 20-percent reduction.

"We ought to be ready for a long, continuous, persistent effort, including the possibility of drinking-water shortages," he said. "I think the drought emphasizes that we do live in an era of limits, that nature has its b oundaries."
