Global Warming is Happening: Surviving Retirement

If you are retired and live on a fixed income, don't fall into a trap of ignoring the entire global warming concept. According to surveys, two-third of Americans believe in a scientists disagreement on the issue. You might be surprised, but today scientists agreement on climate change exceeds 99%. Global warming is happening. The consequences are terrifying.

Water deficiency leads to a farming crisis in the drought states. Did you know that 90 percent of the broccoli, distributed in the United States, is grown in California, along with 99% of artichokes, 99% of walnuts, 97% of kiwis, 97 % of plums, 95% of celery, 95% of garlic, 89% of cauliflower, 71% of spinach, and 69% of carrots (the list goes on)? There is no other state, or a combination of climate and soil can outmatch California's production per acre. Lemons and Spinach California's supply is 55 percent higher than in any other state. If California farming fails to meet demand, prices will sky-rocket across the country.

While Jerry Brown, the Governor of California, ordered mandatory water cuts for residents, agriculture was exempted from new rules, even though farms are the biggest water users. Not everyone likes this measure, but if you think of a bigger picture, agricultural exemption prevents food and vegetable prices to become volatile shortly. 25% water cuts in California during the state of historic drought means a different world where "we have to act differently", said Jerry Brown.

Changing lawns to a drought-tolerant landscape is the big step toward global warming survival. Cutting down an outdoor irrigation saves more than a half of water usages for an average household.  As far as options for waterless landscape go, artificial grass installed in your front and backyard can save you gallons of water every day. Synthetic surfaces made by AllGreen Grass can last twenty years or longer under standard residential use. It means water compliance with the state requirements and no maintenance fees. Artificial grass looks and feels better than semi-arid desert with concrete pavement, or a rock garden. If you have dogs, you don't have to worry about dust on your kitchen floor nor brown or dead spots of your lawn. The time of old astroturf that looks more like a short-fiber outdoor carpet is gone.

Today, we have more than 75 different types of fake grass that come in various colors, shades, heights and backing for any custom application. If you like to play golf, you can choose to transform your backyard into a tranquil golf course. If you have a dog, our pet turf is the cost-effective, environmentally friendly surface that allows any liquids including a dog urine to drain quickly through the backing leaving no smell and no residue behind.

In the last decade, artificial grass lawns became popular across the United States, not only in California, Nevada, Texas and New Mexico. Earlier, synthetic turf solutions were available only for commercial applications due to the high costs of material and installation, today we provide cost-effective solutions to homeowners and small businesses that can fit any budget and taste. Synthetic lawns significantly cut water bills and eliminate the need of lawn maintenance. If you are retired and getting ready to retire and keep you bills down, we suggest you to put artificial grass on your big investment list.

How Do You Feel About California's Water Restrictions?

Al Madrigal, L.A. resident, wasn't in mood to discuss California drought with Jon Stewart.

"I'm sick of it," - he says. "Back home it's all we talk about. We use to go to dinner and discuss movies. Which stars are secretly gays. But now it's just - "How long was your shower. Did you use a backet? Hey, that's a guy whose lawn is green. Call the cops! "

Man, it feels good! I am taking an advantage of your unregulated East Coast Water-topia! Man, it feels good!

Jon, I have to get it out of my system before I go home and slip the recycled toilet water.

I haven't wasted water like this in years!

I am going to paint this town wet, Jon!

Named Best Stand-Up Comedian by the HBO/U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Al Madrigal's comedy has been called "dynamic" by The New York Times. His unique, spontaneous and fast-paced lyrical storytelling style has made him a regular on television with numerous appearances on Comedy Central including his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents Special and appearances on John Oliver's New York Stand-up Show and Pretend Time with Nick Swardson. Al has also appeared with Conan O'Brien (as one of the first 20 guests during his stint as host of "The Tonight Show," and on "Conan" on TBS) as well as multiple appearances on ""Lopez Tonight," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

California drought worsening: New water restrictions carry penalty of up to $500

As California imposed its first-ever statewide rules to
punish water wasters, a new survey showed why state officials say the drastic
measures are needed: Californians actually increased their water use amid the
worst drought in decades.
The new rules, approved by the State Water Resources
Control Board on a 4-0 vote, impose new restrictions on outdoor water use
starting Aug. 1 that could result in fines of up to $500 per violation.
Gov. Jerry Brown in January asked Californians to slash
their water use by 20 percent. But a new state survey released Tuesday showed
that water use in May rose by 1 percent this year, compared with a 2011-2013
May average.
The survey of 267 water providers by the water board
found that water consumption in the Bay Area dropped 5 percent. But in coastal
California, south of Santa Barbara, consumption rose 8 percent.
"California is in the worst drought we've seen in
our grandparents' generation or beyond," said Felicia Marcus, the water
board's chairwoman. "Fields are going fallow. Thousands of people are
going to be out of work. There are communities that are out of water -- they're
bathing out of buckets and water trucks are coming in to help them.
"But many parts of California don't seem to realize
how bad it is," she said, "because they are so far away from their
source of water. We are all in this together, and this is not a time to waste
water."
The new rules ban washing cars without a nozzle on a hose;
watering driveways or sidewalks; using potable water in ornamental fountains;
and over-watering landscaping so that water runs off into roads and adjacent
properties. Recycled water is exempt.
Under the new statewide rules, any agency that does not
impose mandatory conservation measures could be subject to state fines of up to
$10,000 a day. But it remained unclear Tuesday whether local agencies will be
able to keep in place rules that don't include enforcement or penalties.

More than 60 percent of a regular
residential home's water usage goes to lawns, in order to fight the drought
effectively, changing real lawns to artificial grass or other low water
requiring plantation becomes almost imminent. Synthetic grass company,Global
Syn-Turf, Inc. offers more than 50 different type of artificial grass products
with distribution centers throughout California: From Sacramento to Fresno to
San Francisco Bay Area to Greater Los Angeles, you will be able to find their
wonderful product to fit your preference. ...

Global Syn-Turf Grand Opening in Southern California

We are pleased to announce the Grand Opening of our new location in Commerce, California.


As a manufacturer of the artificial grass in United States, we strive to bring our products closer to our customers. There is no secret in the industry that AllGreen Grass, Inc. has the largest inventory in the country. Demand for high quality synthetic solutions for playing surfaces and landscapes has grown in many states in the last five years, but with a catastrophic drought that hit Californians again in 2008 and intensified in 2012, people start to realize the necessity of adapting and exploring new technologies that can help to conserve water.


While governor Jerry Brown is signing a 687 million-dollar drought-relief package to provide farm workers who have lost employment with needed housing, food and assistance, as consumers we have no time to hope for a better future. Instead, we need to become more conscious about realities of our environment.


Synthetic turf is not like an old-fashioned way to conserve water as, for example, rainwater collection, but according to statistics, between four to eight billion gallons of water were conserved in 2010 through the use of artificial grass.


Long and hot summer awaits Southern California this year. For many companies and home owners it is time to consider new ways to adapt resilient water management for long-term relief for a drought.


Visit us in our new location in Commerce, California. We have synthetic turf for any possible use you can imagine, commercial and residential, from sport and playground solutions to professional putting greens. ...
