Lots of action at CofAPundit these days

There's no place else to go. I'm here to ride out the environmental collapse and everything that comes with it. I keep forgetting how frightening it is down the mountain, I have to put up with some stuff I don't like here, but that is true everywhere. At least in Tahoe we have water, and there is a way to get around even if it is difficult. Everyone tells me if you keep looking in South Lake, you find a place to live that fits you, especially in September. So I have to stick it out. Truth is, I have no place else to go. . .

I've been a Californian since 1955 and I'm angry at what locals have let happen to Lake Tahoe. It's all about making a quick buck off the lake, no one is talking about all the damage being done to the lake by fossil fuel burning engines going off everywhere here.
Someone smart should have made this place pristine and set it aside a century ago, but today they only make national monuments out of places that don't have profit potential.
There are hundreds of empty houses here while people have no place to live. The owners salivate and they only care about outsiders coming with credit cards. The Owners put all their attention on the fast buck they can make off the lake, while the lake itself ceases to be beautiful, just becomes a "vacation destination" that makes money for one percenters who live in other states, or even other countries.
So while the water turns more green every day, and the fish in it become toxic, you can buy dollar beer in a plastic cup at the Commons.
Where can a Human go?
