Bay Area’s Low Income Communities Hard Hit by Drought

6872786713_93afb7f6af_mA new report by the Pacific Institute and The Environmental Justice Coalition for Water has found that low-income communities in the San Francisco Bay Area are being hit especially hard by the prolonged dry spell in the state. Show host and Earth Island Journal editor, Maureen Nandini Mitra, discusses the reports’ findings and possible solutions that can address the inherent inequities in our state’s drought responses with Heather Cooley — director of the Oakland-based Pacific Institute’s Water Program and lead author of the report, and Max Gomberg — environmental scientist and climate and conservation manager of the California State Water Resources Control Board.
