Moby to California Governor: Restrict Water to Agribusiness

Vegan musician Moby pens an open letter demanding that the drought-ridden state place restrictions on water used by corporate agribusiness.

In an open letter to California Governor Jerry Brown, musician Moby points to the state’s number one culprit of water use: agribusiness. Using 80 percent of the available water, Moby pleads with the governor to place restrictions on such “super-thirsty cash crops” like beef, which takes 1,847 gallons of water to produce a single pound (conversely, a pound of almonds requires 368 gallons). Representing the Courage Campaign (an online community of nearly 1 million members) to fight for progressive legislation throughout the country, Moby’s encourages officials to “realign our water needs with our water supply” and that we should be creating a system that’s sustainable for the next 100+ years.
