California Water Markets vs The Environment and Ecosystem Services
Tomas DiFiore
California's water crisis issues have been and continue to be dominated by arguments that portray it as 1) farmers against CEQA, 2) farmers vs fish in the rivers in the north 3) urban household use and landscaping and 4) the candied plea for conscious conservation in the interest of 'agriculture' which is usually framed in the context of farms vs individual homeowner landscaping. But over the course of one year, in one oil field in California, the quantity of water used to steam the earth would serve 60,000 to 70,000 households (single family of four, 3 bedroom) including landscape needs. It is important to know what is really being said, even when a Politician doesn't sound like he's saying anything important, what is being said, alludes to a suite of hidden meanings in jargon carefully constructed to sound like nothing too specific.
