Jerry Brown’s myopic view of climate from 2016:
California Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr.: “California droughts are expected to be more frequent and persistent, as warmer winter temperatures driven by climate change reduce water held in the Sierra Nevada snowpack and result in drier soil conditions. Recognizing these new conditions, the executive order directs permanent changes to use water more wisely and efficiently, and prepare for more frequent, persistent periods of limited supply.” 9 May 2016.
