Re "Drought is not an emergency" (Letters, Feb. 2): Letter writer Bill Kopper stated that the drought caused by global warming should demand a change in crop growth here to conserve water.
I would suggest that the new crop would be Agave Cacti for making Tequila so we won't have to import it from Mexico. The new normal dry climate would be ideal for this cash crop. No Auburn Dam would be needed to store water since it will have stopped falling as rain.
No canals to Los Angeles. All stored water could be used to keep the winter and summer salmon runs going. Like all ideas from Davis, this is a great one.
