Human, animal, insect and plant life need to be protected during this drought. But how?
Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2015
Experts Dr. Allen Franz and Cris Sarabia discuss how residents and the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy area can cope with the drought conditions including soil water-absorption resistance, fire hazards, plant and animal endangerment, and potential mudslide perils with the potential onset of heavy rains due to the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) cycle. All this is explored on the Dr. Carol Francis Talk Radio show October 19, 2015, and linked at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/dr-carol-francis/2015/10/19/drought-plant-soil-fire-protection--two-professionals-pvp-land-conservancy .
