- A lot of water problems can be blamed on lawyers. (Just read that the Colorado River is the "most litigated" in the world.)
- These folks are not hearing from very many non-lawyers. I am obviously thinking of myself, but -- seriously -- can't they get some other views in the room?
Bottom Line: It will take a lot of different views to come up with a solution to California's water problems, but law views are more likely to hinder than help.
