California and Water

15 Jul

I’ve been thinking about water a lot lately with the drought and all of the fires that are still burning around the state as I type. I am not the only one thinking about this, of course, and there’s a great, locally produced 30 minute program about the future of water in California:
State of Thirst: California’s Water Future
“Are we in danger of running out of water? California’s population is growing by 600,000 people a year, but much of the state receives as much annual rainfall as Morocco. With fish populations crashing, global warming, and the demands of the country’s largest agricultural industry, the pressures on our water supply are increasing.”

Lights out all night?

29 Mar

I just found an article discussing a proposal that would discourage and possibly fine businesses in San Francisco for leaving their lights on all night. I think it’s very interesting idea. But possibly poses a number of problems. I’d love to get some opinions on it. Read the article and tell me what you think!
