These guys drained the whole Salton Sea and quite a few other lakesIt is never enough... build a desalination plant and pump it in from the
ocean... they and California can afford itThey will probably pump
the ocean dry
The salmon need water to survive. They have no other choice. Once a species is
extinct, it is gone forever. Humans and birds and other animals depend on
salmon as a food source.Farmers have little incentive to save water.
Municipalities have little incentive to save water. Both water extensively
during the day, when it's the hottest. A lot of the water evaporates before
it sinks into the ground to water plants. One only has to look locally to see
the same problem.Humans want to work during daylight hours so that
is when they water. Even with timers, watering still takes place during the
day.I'm with the salmon on this issue. If some farmers have to
grow less, they will survive. If salmon do not have water, they will not
How about taking all the water from the golf courses and give it to the farmers.
The golf courses use far more water than the salmon.Oh,
but that would have a desastours effect on the wealthy and we cannot have that.
The only creatures on this old Earth that deserve anything are human beings. /s
I side with the salmon. To heck with Rush Limbaugh. A decline from 70 thousand
to ten thousand is a tragedy. We are charged to be good stewards of the earth.
Destroying salmon habitat is not good stewardship. Salmon are not just some
endangered species. They are a vital part of the ecosystem and an important
food source and game fish.
Fact agriculture is the #1 squander of water. Multitudes of studies have been
done showing these farms waste millions of gallons of water daily. Fact# 2 the US wastes more food than any country in the world. Fact# 3 The US imports more Produces and Beef then any country in the world
My point being no their will not be any food shortages, the price of
produce will go up due to corporate greed these industrial farms produces
millions of tons of food that just goes to waste. Did you know if
produce is not the perfect shape or color its discarded ? Multitude
of solutions have been brought to the table to optimize watering but the
majority of these farmers do not utilize them due to the fact they can just
squanders millions of gallons of water without consequence.
To paraphrase Rush Limbaugh, "Why should we have to adapt to the salmon? If
the salmon can't adapt to us, to heck with them."
And when the price of food goes through the roof I'm sure California
Democrats will blame it all on Trump.
Salmon gaining sanctuary rights?Only in California.They
voted in their politicians!Now live with it!
