Netanyahu Offers Help for California’s Drought – Jonathan Ferziger
(Daily Alert)

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday offered to help California weather its drought with water conservation and desalination techniques pioneered by his country’s scientists. Israel, a country that’s 60% desert, has become a technological leader in countering drought. Desalination of sea water, reuse of treated sewage for agriculture, software creating an early-warning system for leaks, computerized drip irrigation, and careful accounting of every drop have become the norm in Israel.

    “We’re in the midst of a mega drought,” California Gov. Jerry Brown said. “Israel has demonstrated how efficient a country can be and this is a great opportunity for collaboration.”  (Bloomberg)
