To help it cope with a historic drought, California is turning to Israeli desalination technology to help boost the water supply. What other Israeli strategies are Californians adopting to fight the drought?
First the municipal government of San Luis Obispo replaced the town’s customary greeting of “Have a nice day!” with “What’s it to you, punk?”
