Another attempt at the environmentalists to destroy California?
If Schwarzenegger were more of a leader than a girly-man follower of the democrats, he would be demanding that the water needs of the people trump the environmental concerns over a fish that has little or no proven value to the ecosystem.
According to the Associated Press …
“Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency Friday because of three years of below-average rain and snowfall in California, a step that urges urban water agencies to reduce water use by 20 percent.”
Taking a lesson from the democrats who want to maximize every crisis, real or imagined, for political control …
" ‘This drought is having a devastating impact on our people, our communities, our economy and our environment, making today's action absolutely necessary,’ the Republican governor said in his statement.”
Like the actions of Schwarzenegger and his “tax and spend” legislature has not already decimated the California economy with their frivolous spending on the unions, special interests, illegal aliens and other social experiments. Does Schwarzenegger think that this will serve as a diversion to his perfidy in raising taxes and allow him to blame nature and global warming for the state’s self-inflicted ills? Does this asshat governor even know that most of Southern California is built in a desert – dependent on external water for survival? Not if you see Schwarzenstupid’s lack of action in repairing and replacing our crumbling water infrastructure. Where are the nuclear-fired desalination plants which would solve most of our problems and make this state into a flowering garden?
“Three dry winters have left California's state- and federally operated reservoirs at their lowest levels since 1992.”
“Over the last few weeks, storms have helped bring the seasons' rain totals to 87 percent of average, but the Sierra snowpack remains at 78 percent of normal for this time of year. State hydrologists say the snowpack must reach between 120 to 130 percent of normal to make up for the two previous dry winters and replenish California's key reservoirs.”
“Court decisions intended to protect threatened fish species also have forced a significant cutback in pumping from the Sacramento-San Joaquin delta, the heart of the state's delivery system.”
Let the governor show some leadership …
Screw the little fish and start looking at desalination plants.
