In Northern California we have a huge watershed that supplies huge underground aquifers. These have remained essentially full during the drought years. Ground settling has been small and very limited in area. It is not clear that a warmer ocean surface will not produce more precipitation here. We know it will globally. The climate models have failed miserably! Measured warming is 0.11 degrees C per decade; the model predictions average 0.25 C per decade. These predictions are fed to the media by the climate establishment that continues to assert we are having a global-warming climate crisis. However, the data show that crisis is 100 years away, if at all.
