California Water Sept 30
Speaker2: You know, California's water supply isn't just important to California, it is important to the whole country for these fresh fruit and vegetable products, for the nut crops and other things that are produced there that are not produced anywhere in this country otherwise or in very, very tiny percentages elsewhere. All your almonds pretty much come from California. Yet there's all this rhetoric out there like, Oh, the almonds are using all the water. We're exporting all our water. No, the water doesn't actually leave the state. Each M and nut doesn't have that much water in it. It goes back into recharging the groundwater. It goes back into keeping the local economy growing those trees that replace CO2 with oxygen. I'd like you to check out this page on Facebook. It's called the California Water for Food and People movement. Young lady named Christy Deaner on there puts out excellent information all the time on all the different aspects of California water and why that's important to everybody.
