    1. The historic drought is now in its fourth year and shows little sign of abating in 2015.

      Fourth year? How and what skills did California come up with to 'harvest' enough water to keep everyone alright? The ongoing drought is even more significant due to the large population of California, and imagining how much water is used frequently everyday. I can't imagine trying to organize the state and instructing everyone to follow the new frequencies in which they use water under the circumstances.

    2. NewsHour’s Hari Sreenivasan spoke Wednesday with Gov. Brown about the cutbacks and the impact that the drought is having on California’s citizens and economy.

      I wonder how much impact the drought has on the economy to the people in the agricultural industry. Because their occupations rely on water, there must be a huge compromise they must make in order to save the water, yet continue their lifestyle/jobs. All citizens have to cooperate in order to defeat the drought, and the fact that California does produce many agricultural foods (fruits and vegetables) for many other places means that other places will be affected as well.
