California Drought: Finding a Fix

May 28th, 2015

Episode 262 of 679 episodes

From southern California we report on how ordinary citizens are coping with the drought, 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.
