Victor Davis Hanson, the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, discussed the California drought in his talk entitled “A Tale of Two Droughts.” Hanson began by giving a historical perspective on water sources and usage in California. He went on to outline how California politics has exacerbated the tensions of a three-year drought and discusses his rationale for this behavior.
