Now the musician has started a petition on Campaign Courage urging Brown to “stop corporate agribusiness from tapping out” the state’s water supplies. He is asking Brown to realign the state’s water rights, “put limits on irrigating super-thirsty cash crops like almonds, beef and alfalfa, and ensure our groundwater is not overpumped and depleted.” Those products, he told Forbes, are “the worst water offenders.”
The musician and activist discusses how policy-makers are like record executives in the Nineties: ignoring inevitable change and how his work with Courage Campaign is hoping to change the game.
A los manifestantes les preocupa que el escaso abasto sea usado por una corporación que da prioridad a la ganancia sobre el acceso de la gente, cuando el estado sufre una de las peores secas de su historia
As one of the self professed “poster children for California for advocating for California water reform,” musician/DJ and activist Moby says California’s water crisis’s biggest problem is that no one wants to face reality. “As a species, it’s almost like we hate consequences and being realistic. I know I do,” says Moby over the phone from his home in Los Angeles. “I hate the fact that I’m short and bald, but I am. I’ll never be a hair model or a basketball player. Actually, maybe that should be the solution. If the state is going to subsidize alfalfa, get me hair implants and figure out a way to make me taller. If we’re going to live in the land of unrealistic fairytales, that’s one I could support.”
