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

      If this drought can have enough impact to the citizens and the economy of California, in a year, how will the conditions of California look like? California is a very popular state especially known for the produce they harvest throughout the year. Many people in America are relying on California for their fruit and vegetables supply showing that if this drought gets worse, it can effect a whole lot more people. California should have watched out for this drought and tried to find solutions to it in its early stages, now that it got worse, it will be harder to find this solution, and from here everything can go downhill.

      This makes me wonder what would happen if other parts of the world would also receive droughts. It is clearly a big issue and can even effect regular people who are skiing, or trying to fill up a public swimming pool, or even an every day dock. Even though the State of California's water conservation is trying to limit the amount of water use regularly, such as in a water fountain, the water stored won't last long. Larger cautions should be taken so California will not have any future droughts, affecting them in this way or any other states as well.
