California And The Drought

The photos here are from an article in the NY Times today concerning actions in California to conserve water in the face of the continuing drought. Article is interesting and shows several bizarre photos of how things have been done there, especially in southern California. Full article is at:

What's wrong with these photos and how did we get here? See the late Marc Reisner's book, Cadillac Desert (1986). Reisner dissects how the West's water mess came to be - his book should be required reading for all decision makers at all levels, from the Central Plains to the Pacific.
