I will say that the slide that said “Hope is not a strategy.” irked me a little. When the Governor declared a state of emergency for the California drought, why didn’t we immediately start to implement the State Drought Plan? Oh yeah. Because there isn’t one and no one contemplates writing one. There are some scattered concepts, like letting ag fend for itself and starting a drought water bank. But really. The state is flailing on this; there is no comprehensive strategy or prioritizing for droughts. Certainly no one thought to write such a thing in the several wet years we had in the early 2000’s.
