BizDaily: California Drought, Finding a Fix

May 28th, 2015

Episode 263 of 643 episodes

We have a report from southern California on how ordinary citizens are coping, and whether social pressure is helping to shame extravagant water-users to scale down their consumption. We also have an exclusive interview with the state's veteran Governor, Jerry Brown, on why he reckons a state-wide low-carbon agenda is part of a sensible policy response. And we speak to Dr Alex Money, a Research Fellow at Oxford University's Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, who assesses how business can be better harnessed to find a fix to the global water-supply problem.
