California Drought
Lots of different data floating in (pun intended) regarding the snow pack in California and the state of the water reservoirs in California. On July 7, 2016, it was noted that Lake Mead was down to historic lows. The level of Lake Mead continues to fall. See this link (it's a dynamic link). Unless I'm missing something, Lake Mead dropped into Ration Region 1 -- hitting historic lows. [Later, a reader sent me the link to California snow pack water equivalent.]

The Literature Page

In The Celts, Gerhard Herm, has a full chapter on the Druids. Caesar noted that in Gaul, only two groups were important and enjoyed respect: the Druids and the knights.
The Druids would lay down what was right and what was not. They ruled over past and future, healing, the course of the seasons and the secrets of nature; they were university, church, and court of the realm all in one.
The author asks what gave them all that power?
What gave them such immunity from attack, other than their political skills? The Celts, Caesar says, 'were to a great extent religious.' from a political viewpoint, creeds, like ideologies, are the best way of ruling men.
If there is one recurring ideology espoused by President Barack Obama, it has been global warming. That will outlive him and will carry his legacy. Healthcare will not; foreign affairs will not; and, certainly his impact on the US economy will not be remembered. But the ideology -- should we say, religion, or cult -- of global warming will go on for quite some time.
