Another California Drought with No New Reservoirs

Wesley J. Smith on National Review highlights how overburdensome environmental policies in California are making droughts worse.

The C3 Take
  • Excessive government red tape is making droughts worse in California.
  • Since 1979 the state has not constructed a single large-scale water storage project, despite the fact that its population has significantly grown.
  • Even today radical environmentalists in the state are looking to tear down existing reservoirs.
  • If California wants to more adequately deal with climate change’s effects, it should look to first build more water storage.

“In 1979, California’s population was a little more than 23 million. Today, it is more than 39 million. Yet in that entire time, California did not construct one additional, large-scale water storage project – meaning water infrastructure that once suited the state’s irrigation, livestock, and human needs has become chronically inadequate to meet its essential tasks.”
