In the last week, the Union of Con- cerned Scientists have published two exceptional blog posts about how to better manage California’s water in the wake of climate change. Western states senior climate analyst for UCS, Adrienne Alvord reveals the need to improve climate change modeling practices and data literacy among water management officials in her blog post, “Water in an Uncertain Future: Planning the New Normal.” Alvord explains, “Researchers and scientists at UCS and the Stanford Law and Policy Lab released a report today that says much more needs to be done to ensure adequate ground- water management, and, by extension, overall water management in an era of rapid climate change. “The report found nearly half of the 24 groundwater plans analyzed did not include the kind of quantitative analysis of climate change required by the state. “The researchers also found that state and federal water delivery projections that local agencies rely upon to make water management decisions are incon- sistent and therefore confusing to use. They found that too often models were used inappropriately or with unreliable assumptions. For example, many agencies were not using a range of climate data but relying on ‘moderate’ scenarios to plan—a bit like planning for a ‘moderate’ earthquake rather than the maximum force that can result in damage to life and property.
