Systemic governance in action

Californian Governor Jerry Brown and US Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar have just announced a major plan to address long-running contested issues of water governance in the estuaries of the rivers entering the San Francisco Bay. The proposal is:

'a $23-billion proposal intended to improve water deliveries to the San Joaquin Valley and Southern California and stop the ecological free fall of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.'

What is to me most impressive is the  understanding that Governor Brown conveys of the needs of governance in our current circumstances.  With this claim in mind spend some time looking at this clip and analyse some of the arguments put forward. As the colleague who posted me the link said: 'it is a joy to watch'.
