"California survived its historic drought, in large part by using groundwater. It was a lifeline in the Central Valley, where it was the only source of water for many farmers.

California regulators are charged with protecting that groundwater, but for years they failed to do so. Through a series of mistakes and miscommunication, they allowed oil companies to put wastewater into drinking water aquifers that were supposed to be safeguarded.

Now, a KQED investigation reveals that regulators still know little about the actual impact on the state’s groundwater reserves."

Cap-and-trade shouldn't sacrifice clean air
Ventura County Star | Jim Hines, Special to The Star
7.29.2017

The cap-and-trade bill fight in Sacramento was about as confusing as any legislative battle ever gets.

On the one side, you had some very well-known environmental groups and the governor working to pass the legislation, Assembly Bill 398.

On the other, you had some very well-known environmental groups and nearly every environmental justice group in the state opposing the bill.

What gives?

A group I have devoted much of my time volunteering for, the Sierra Club, was one of the bill's opponents. Why did we diverge from the governor on this big bill addressing climate pollution?
