The small amounts of rain in California can be viewed as cure to the 25 percent reductions. The problem persists in changing the models for conservation. The rain for those who desired to consume water despite restrictions will see this rain as way to reconcile usage.
California has to employ sustainability education by either carrot or stick as in organizations.
The drought is a game changer not only for California but for the U.S. as probable steps to conservation’s across the states. Today it is California’s water and other state’s energy. The work of California is just at the beginning. The education is to convince the citizens that their hose and showers are tied to the overall problem.
I have beat the drum to convey the role of sustainability in planning and intelligence. It is not enough to gather the data. The challenge is in convincing the users the role of the data and then how to convey the end user that the information is relevant and timely with consequences.
