One Planet: How Is California Preparing For A Future With Less Water?
On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we're discussing California's ongoing drought. The lack of rain and dwindling snow packs have led to critically low water levels in California’s reservoirs and severe drought conditions in much of the state.
In May, California Governor Gavin Newsom placed 41 of the state’s 58 counties under a drought emergency. With California in the midst of another drought, how is the state preparing for a possible water shortage? What will it take to truly address this crisis?
