It’s no secret that California is in a permanent state of not-enough-waterness, but now, it has reached serious bad times. Shit, as the kids say, just got very real.
The basics, from not watering your lawn and flower garden to wearing your clothes more than once before laundering and, to put it delicately, letting things mellow, are no longer sufficient to keep California running.
(And before you say “well I don’t live there, so it doesn’t matter to me” allow me to point out that yes, it very much does matter to you. The California Central Valley, on less than 1% of the nation’s farmland, produces 8% of the nation’s agricultural output. And 90% of the nation’s avocados. So if you ever want to see your guacamole again, you’ll help us out.)
