Moby vs. Agribusiness

New, 1 comment

Noted vegan and water-based life form Moby has a lot to say about California water policy, and recently helped launch a petition asking Governor Jerry Brown for a stricter water budget. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the musician spins an extended metaphor comparing the record industry of the late 90s to politicians whom he says are in denial over the reality of water's scarcity. "I feel like Governor Brown and the legislature are taking a similar tactic to water that the record companies took to Napster," he says. "They want to pretend that things are going to go back to a much easier, simpler status quo." [Rolling Stone]
