From the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) staff Switchboard blog, in a post by Frances Beinecke:
“California can withstand this drought—and the arid days ahead brought on by climate change—if it expands water saving measures. These solutions are already benefiting the state. Los Angeles uses the same amount of water today as it did in 1970 despite adding 1 million people.
“Water efficiency, recycling, and other local supplies will help California flourish in a drier future. But some lawmakers are stuck in the past.”
