Professor Barton "Buzz" Thompson is briefly mentioned in the following article that covers a book co-authored by the professor addressing California's water management system. The Western Farm Press discusses the findings brought forth by the book:

California's water management system is deteriorating — on both economic and environmental fronts. Only a broad, integrative approach will reverse the decline, according to a new book released by experts from UC Davis, the Public Policy Institute of California, UC Riverside, UC Hastings College of the Law and Stanford University.

It is the first time in 40 years, the authors say, that independent experts have come together to offer a long-term view of the water challenges throughout California. In "Managing California's Water: From Conflict to Reconciliation," experts in geology, fish ecology, engineering, economy and law urge a more comprehensive approach to meeting the growing demand for reliable water supply, healthy ecosystems and flood protection.


In addition to Lund, the co-authors are Ellen Hanak, PPIC; Richard Howitt, Jeffrey Mount and Peter Moyle, UC Davis; Ariel Dinar, UC Riverside; Brian Gray, UC Hastings College of the Law; and Barton "Buzz" Thompson, Stanford University Law School.
