First, they ignore the science . . .

Order yours here.

Let’s not forget. In 2009 the California Legislature directed the Delta Stewardship Council (DSC) to write a Delta Plan, starting with science. The Legislature wanted scientists to determine how much water needs to flow through the Delta to maintain a healthy environment to then determine how much excess water is available to export.

That makes sense! That is logical!

  But the 2010 Delta Flows Requirements Report said the exporters were already exporting too much water. (The maximum average export to keep the estuary healthy is 3 to 3.5 million acre feet (MAF) per year average. They export 5 to 6 MAF average. And they want more!)

The DSC chose to ignore the science. They even put a cover page on the report that said basically that the report is only science and the report forgets that farmers and cities in the south need more water than that.

State agencies have proceeded to march ahead, ignoring science.

The new Delta Tunnels project (“WaterFix”) goal is to not only continue to over-export, but to take even more, the fresher water directly from the Sacramento River.

How well do you think that is going to go?

Have you seen any good disaster movies lately?
