LEAFLET: Drought! — The Crisis & The Solution
February 26, 2014 • 1:37PM

The drought crisis now hitting California, Texas, and much of the West may be the worst in 500 years. If measures are not taken immediately to reverse conditions, millions face loss of drinking water supply, and the U.S. faces critical loss of food supply, as California’s Central Valley provides 1/3 of the nation’s produce. Emergency measures can and must be taken by the federal government to bring immediate relief to parched land and people. Farmland, and the nation’s food supply must be saved. Intermediate and long term solutions must be set into motion now, including an FDR-style mobilization to build NAWAPA XXI.
