    Because of persistent drought and water crises due to unsustainable practices, California is facing many challenges to its very existence. It is water that built California and opened the West to expansion; and it is water now that poses the single-most challenging aspect of its future. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will share headlines of the last few weeks related to the water crisis, and will suggest that to find a solution we must look to an entirely new value proposition built around the rightful use and distribution of water.
