The Dying Salton Sea, and a Plan to Save It

Hosted by

The Salton Sea in Imperial County is bigger than Lake Tahoe. Created by accident 110 years ago, it became a habitat for fish, migratory birds—and Hollywood celebrities. But now it's become a dustbowl of toxic chemicals. Will the State make good on a promise to save it?

Also on the program, Governor Brown has signed the so-called "End of Life" bill, making assisted suicide legal in California.
