The Climate Readiness Institute, a coalition of scientists from UC Berkeley, UC Davis, Stanford University and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, is hosting a four-hour meeting with local water officials and other Bay Area leaders to discuss how academic research can help deal with the current drought and the broader shift in California’s climate. “These are experts on making water come out of a tap,” said William Collins, director of CRI and a climate modeler based at LBNL and UC Berkeley. “This meeting will focus on what the current drought could mean for the Bay Area and what kind of long-term steps, whether it be adaptation or mitigation, we should be taking.”
