California is Unsustainable

At first glance, California may seem like one of the most sustainable places in the world. With its abundance of both tech companies and natural resources, it seems impossible that the giant, tourist drawing state could be anywhere near unsustainable. At the very least, its residents seem to have some crazy sustainable values right?
However, despite all of the supposed sustainability, California’s government has made the state a little rocky. Or, a lot rocky.
You see, California has an outdated water system, built in the 60s for a population of around 20 million. With the current population skirting around 40 million, this water system just isn’t working. Too many people many people and too much need for water is causing water shortages. Over five percent of the state’s bridges are structurally unsound, and roads are in severe disrepair.
California’s government doesn’t quite seem to have enough money for these new water and road systems, which is probably because the state’s debt climbed to over one trillion dollars in June 2017.
Of course, California is the highest taxed state in the United States, which makes it just a little ironic that the state is drowning in debt AND can’t seem to find the money for new bridges and water systems. As the state moves farther and farther left, budget cuts are not being made anywhere, and taxes are slowly rising to accommodate new costs such as the 70 billion dollar high speed railroad system that most Californians agree was not the best idea.
Obviously, we can’t completely blame California for its lack of sustainability. With such a huge state and so many people, it would be hard to keep up with the constantly growing population and challenges coming at such a huge state. However, for a state that gets some of the most tourism, has huge amounts of natural resources, and huge tech companies operating out of it, it seems as is California could make a better choice here or there.
