Water is in a category of problems all by itself.
Check it out:
Last week’s state water usage report was both shocking and sobering. Not only did California not meet its projected statewide reduction goal, overall water usage actually increased! Talk about playing with fire (no pun intended). We are on the verge of a catastrophe and no one seems to care.
I realize the forces of Mother Nature, politics and money are part of the problem and solution to our water crisis. Despite the fact that California is 100 percent in drought, some things are constant: First, we are a state of 58 counties and nearly 500 incorporated cities and towns; second, our economy is the 8th largest in the world; and third, we number more than 37 million residents. Having said that, nothing and no one trumps the obvious: We have make sure the state has enough water.
