Extravagantly Wasteful Suburban Lifestyle in the Desert.

Note how all the portion of the California Desert Valley shown below is as green as all of Ireland, and how everything is sprawled out and accessible only by 4-lane and 6-lane highways. Utterly extravagant, as if Peak Oil were no object, and California were not presently in a water shortage.
