Abstract

Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows: Energy and water are inextricably linked. It takes immense amounts of energy to pump water and transport it through Californias vast system of canals. Falling water can create large amounts of hydroelectric power, while thermal power plants use large amounts of water for cooling. The economic relationship between water and energy is so close that trade-offs are both unavoidable and highly complex.
