Nice chart from USPS showing which method is cheaper. First class for under 7 oz, media mail for greater.
California agriculture consumes 80% of CA water. It contributes 2% of the CA economy. And there are 500,000 acres of rice under cultivation in a desert climate, using >2,500,000 acre feet of water per year, equivalent of the water use of approx 7 million homes. Could political payola be in play here?
