Different context, but…

What an interesting quote from Jerry Brown:

“We need a centralized base of arbitrary intervention to overcome the distributed political power that is blocking forward progress,” Brown said.

I’m not a fan of desert solar, but it does seem as if Gov. Brown is emerging from his intense focus on the budget. Could get interesting around here.

LATER: I got an email asking for more context. I haven’t heard that Gov. Brown is turning his attention to water. My perennial complaint is that the state is incapable of making decisions, especially decisions that create winners and losers. I’ve long thought that there are too many veto points in all of water’s different venues. So I am very intrigued to hear the governor making the same critique and sounding willing to make decisions that ultimately must be arbitrary.

    Habitat destruction. Blight upon the landscape. I like deserts a lot.
