In autumn 2014, Ebola consumed all major headlines and was a major focus of the federal government, the CDC and the NIH. President Obama sent thousands of troops to West Africa to set up infrastructure to fight the disease. While all this unfolded, as the troops scattered to a faraway land, California descended into a time of relentless drought, as water supplies dried up for thousands. Large-scale water shortages continue to multiply in the Central Valley, a problem unfolding quietly before the world’s eyes.

Always quick to fix problems overseas, the federal government failed to address what was happening right in their own borders, in the golden state of California. The major headlines failed to mention the large-scale dry-up of water wells throughout the state and the loss of agricultural production. While Ebola distracted the masses, many in California were faced with greater problems of their own. Running water came to a trickle. Warm showers came to an end. Toilets stopped flushing. Americans living elsewhere couldn’t hear the calls for help within their own country because they couldn’t see through the sheets of rain in front of their own eyes, the very water they take for granted each day.
