The answer to solve the drought is right next to California it is called the Pacific Ocean. Desalination plants exist it just cost a lot to operate need be we will operate them I think the cost is worth it. If you place a little kid on a beach and say there is a drought were running out of water that kid will say why can't we drink the ocean. You would say because it is poisonous. The kids next question would be why not make it not poisonous. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out we've all been the little kid who has asked the same question.
