Conservation Nation EP14: What explains California’s water scarcity woes?


By Gabriella Hoffman 

In Episode 14 of CFACT’s original video series Conservation Nation, host Gabriella Hoffman travels to California to unearth the truth of the Golden State’s water scarcity woes.

She speaks with four experts –  William BourdeauErik WilsonJohnny Amaral & California Policy Center‘s Edward Ring –  to get to the bottom of the situation and learn about solutions.

This is also the last video our CFACT colleague and friend, Adam Houser, lent his input on. We will miss his feedback and valuable contributions for the series. 

Please watch and share! Filmed and edited by the brilliant Madison Hughes as always.
