See, riding a bike makes you younger!  Mr. Johnson sure doesn't look what we usually think a 93-year old looks like.

Re: the drought.  This is what climate change brings us.  In the not-so distant future, the SW will be uninhabitable.

OBTS - Re: drought.  That is unless there is a huge west coast earthquake and then we could potentially be oceanfront property! ;)

Yeah, sorry Adelita.  Even that wouldn't be beneficial--climate change is going to cause the oceans to rise and beachfront property is exactly where you don't want to be in that scenario.  Also, climate change is causing larger, more destructive storms....and again, beachfront property is not optimal during one of those storms. 

Climate change is no joke.

Re: climate change, I would amend tOBTS's original post to read:

In the not-so distant future, the SW will be uninhabitable to people living the way we do now.

While this is a doozy of a drought that poses huge challenges to our current water-use and development regimes, so far it doesn't really rate against most of the big droughts of the last 1000 (or even the last 100) years. A smaller population with a more desert-adapted way of life would be in a lot less trouble...it's when you throw golf courses and parks and lawns and 2 million people into the mix that things get dire.

OBTS - I'm well aware of the devastating effects of climate change.
