A fitting analogy of the State of California during the current water crisis would be that of a young family with two small children living comfortably in a two bedroom, one-bath house in the early 1960s.

Most of us would have long ago decided to add on or buy a much larger house. When it comes to solving the water crisis, we hear far-ranging ideas from living with dead plants to a call to limit water for the production of food.
