It is raining in California as I write this but most of it will do little good
. The rain is going to go to a gutter and the gutter will go to a stream and that will go to an ocean.
Yes, much of the fresh water that California has runs into the Pacific Ocean. You might wonder why the Pacific Ocean needs so much, since 96 percent of Earth's water is already in oceans, but the oceans are not asking for it. Instead, it is due to anti-science policies lobbied for by well-heeled California environmentalists.
