    Re: “…Blaming Environmentalists for CA drought”, I recently read the following piece, which picks apart the green position on water vs. the agricultural concerns. Its an interesting position to take, I don’t know enough on the issue to take sides, but it has been fascinating to see the fallout from this drought, especially the shaming of those that drink almond milk for “contributing” to it…http://www.city-journal.org/2015/25_1_california-drought.html
