Dry Land and Deaf Ears

Hosted by

We’re well into the fourth year of a severe drought in California. And this week, Governor Jerry Brown and legislative leaders from both parties announced more than $1 billion in emergency aid. But the governor also faced question after question over whether the State Water Resources Control Board's new conservation actions are enough. That’s in light of a recent op-ed piece in the LA Times that said we have about a year’s worth of water left in California. KCRW's Steve Chiotakis spoke with John Myers, senior editor of the California Politics and Government Desk at KQED in San Francisco, and Joe Mathews, California Columnist for Zocalo Public Square.
