Climate history and the scenarios of conservation will be among the topics discussed Thursday when Tom Ash speaks at The Ojai Retreat. He will focus on the state’s drought and water management and will discuss what is known of past West Coast drought cycles and what might be expected of the state’s water resources in the decades to come.
“Tom is in touch with the highest levels of California government and what their plans are concerning the state’s water,” said Ulrich Brugger, founder of The Ojai Retreat. And the government appears to be thinking ahead, he added, drawing up plans for a 50-year drought should one continue for so long.
