- A great article on the New California Water Atlas (I'm advising them)
- Barry Lehrman and I chatted about Los Angeles, Owens Valley and their aqueduct futures (41 min on YouTube or MP3)
- Developing countries are mad that developed countries are not delivering promised money to help cope with adapting to climate change, which is going to "manifest" through a nastier water cycle (Philippine representatives are fasting in protest).
Addendum: 600 NGO groups have walked out, protesting a lack of delivery of promised $ by developed countries; Poland fired its enviro minister (chair of UCOP19). Looks like +4C
- Speaking of adaptation, California homeowners are upset that they will have to pay the full cost of insurance. Politicians complain that risk-adjusted rates are "unaffordable." People should have thought about that before moving into a flood plain. My solution: no insurance = rescue inhabitants but no money for the house. My Dutch colleagues have a better solution -- help threatened [Delta] homeowners see that they need to work together, via games!
