Don't know about your weather over there, here is hell.

Even with an inch of rain last week, we have had only 5 inches this year - less than a third of the average. Hottest ever May, followed by hottest ever June. Currently in Exceptional Drought - the highest level. No end in sight.

Am always exhausted - can't sleep at night, can't stay awake during the day.

Really feel sorry for the poor sods in places suffering worse than this.

But, but climate change isn't real and we can just carry on with mega corporations stripping the planet of all its resources until capitalism literally destroys itself. We're all good here...

You do realise China isn't based on capitalism?

Stumbled across a bloke on you tube doing weekly lake mead updates, that seems to be losing 10 feet of water a week, bloke says a lot of it is climate change and the long ongoing drought, but not putting a water usage plan into effect is worse

There are a lot of utilities who do their very best to improve performance, even in the US. I know they guy who runs operations for a large Texan utility - he goes way above and beyond normal efforts. He can only do so much though when his customers use, and waste, a phenomenal amount of water.

It's a communist Capitalist hybrid taking the worst of both social models.

State control and enforcement coupled with the vanity of uncontrolled growth for the purpose of growth purposes.

Not sure where the war mongering/posturing and invasion of neighbouring countries coupled with the oppression of minorities comes from, not like that's an exclusive club.

Americans won't even give up implements of death, you think we're going to give up 35 minute showers?
