Drought? More like expansion

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 11/28/12

Bill Kocher says in the article, "New report highlights hidden costs of desalination projects" that desalination will be only used in periods of drought. He also can see the future and guarantees another drought. Sorry Bill, but even when you are faced with the absolute truth about desalination you still think its worthwhile putting us in debt and other fixed costs for years to come by building this plant. Even on the chance you are remotely right about a dry year or two we will conserve and your plant will sit idle. Perhaps its the UC Santa Cruz expansion drought you are thinking about. Guess no one needs a crystal ball for that prediction.
