    Propublica: Killing the Colorado

    Propublica: California’s Drought Is Part of a Much Bigger Water Crisis. Here’s What You Need to Know

    Propublica has published a series of educational articles on the California drought crisis. The first link above gets you to the main website of the articles. The second link is a summary article covering all facets of the crisis with links to other articles. For anyone interested in the drought crisis, I found these articles to be informative without a political spin.

    Thanks for sharing, Schmidt. I read these the other week and found them fascinating. Extremely depressing, but still fascinating.

    It worries me that people think this is only a California problem, which it is not. So much of our agriculture is grown in California and once the prices on grapes, almonds, walnuts, avocados, olives, etc. start skyrocketing then we will begin to pay a hell of a lot more attention to the crisis going on there.
