His ethically and morally unsupportable position of growth trumping nature and safety has added at least 5 years of unabate growth to Travis County. This has dramatically reduced the time for an El Nino to bring rains that would have give the city 2-3 more years to prepare for the likely running dry.
As it is we have only about 18 mos to prepare for the catastrophic "running dry". That is far too little time for 1.7 million people to replan their lives, and government services like police, fire, and medical facilities to prepare. For example all nursing homes with need to install generators capable of running 24/7, and most will not be able to afford it.
There are many other major problems that must be taken into account, and these can be found in my many earlier posts on the drought.
But the A A-S has given the city a humaitarian warning of the catastrople that loom.
We should all thank them for that.
