It was a very informative hour. The biases were easy to see. I was glad that Peter Gleick made the point that the environmental view is a weak player in the game of allocating water. The PPIC Report calls for the abandonment of many acres of prime farm land.
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla did a good job of pointing out the economic issues that had not been considered in the report.
I would urge everyone to listen to the report later in the day or tomorrow. It is not yet available online, but will be.
