California’s Sen. Boxer says conservation will solve drought

By Wayne Lusvardi | Cal Watchdog

Can California’s zero-sum water wars only be resolved by a system of stern water conservation? That’s what California U.S. Senator at large Barbara Boxer left as an unanswered question at a March 20 Palm Springs water symposium on the theme “Running Dry.” Video here.

Boxer quoted President Obama from his February visit to drought-plagued California. He said Americans should stop thinking of water as a “zero-sum” game.

A zero-sum game is one in which there’s only one winner, and everybody else loses. By contrast, a “win-win” game is one in which, potentially, everybody could win.
