Water, Water Everywhere and Not a Drop to Drink

Yisrael Rutman

The current drought in California is the worst in over 100 years, and though California borders the Pacific Ocean and has 840 miles (1,350km) of coastline, the saltwater can’t solve the crisis. How is the drought affecting life in California? Will it affect the rest of us? And can anything be done?

Chavi Morris was doing her homework. She was copying down notes from a book propped up on the table in front of her. “There was a drought in the land,” she read aloud as she wrote, “and the crops dried up.” “What’s ‘crops’?” piped up Miriam, who was listening with one ear while playing with her dollies. “Things that grow, like wheat and barley,” replied Chavi, not looking up.
