From The Fresno Bee:
“The drought is devastating San Joaquin Valley farms and leaving parched growers with no choice but to drill ever deeper for water. Tapping the aquifer for more water, we know, isn’t sustainable. Nor is it good for the environment.
“In the face of likely catastrophe, Gov. Jerry Brown and President Barack Obama should act on the requests of California lawmakers — both in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. — and declare a state of emergency.”
