Global Warming Discussion: California Drought and Deadly Indian Heatwave

2015-06-05T01:55:46-07:00

"Democracy Now!" airs weekdays at 9 a.m. PT on KCET.

As California's massive drought worsens, new mandatory water restrictions have just gone into effect, requiring residents to cut back water use by a net total of 25 percent. A new study by the University of California, Davis finds that in 2015 alone, the drought will cost the state's farmers and agricultural industry $2.7 billion and more than 18,000 jobs. The study notes: "The socioeconomic impacts of an extended drought, in 2016 and beyond, could be much more severe."

Meanwhile the death toll from India's heatwave has topped 2,300, making it the fifth deadliest heatwave on record. "Democracy Now!" is joined by two leading climate scientists at Stanford University, Noah Diffenbaugh and Mark Jacobson
