Bix Weir talks about the Oroville Dam and why it's so important to California. It's a vital part of California's second largest reservoir and helps store 50 percent of Los Angeles's water. In addition, it helps irrigate much of the Central Valley's crops. The loss of this vital piece of the state's infrastructure is almost impossible to quantify at this particular time. It's been nearly a generation since California built a reservoir and it hasn't properly maintained what it has. Now the chickens are coming home to roost.
We also discussed the coming DC housecleaning, Pizzagate and the Antarctica discoveries.
