Meanwhile, in California, new research from NASA shows that parts of the San Joaquin Valley are sinking almost two inches every month as a result of the increased consumption of groundwater due to the drought. A least one town has sunk by more than a foot. The sinking is cracking roads and unearthing underground pipelines. Researchers say the damage may be irreversible. We’ll have more on climate change later in the broadcast.
