Desalination: That which goes unspoken

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 5/20/12

Despite UC Santa Cruz's admirable progress in recent years conserving water, as praised in the Sentinel recently by Santa Cruz Mayor Don Lane, is anyone so naive as to doubt that the university's north campus expansion plans would result in a huge increase in overall campus water demand? Where will all the additional water come from? Mr. Lane conspicuously neglected to answer that question, but the answer is obvious: desalination, which he actively promotes at taxpayer expense.
