Regs Are Unscientifically Driven

Climate change is a function of multi decade or longer natural cycles….not CO2 or global warming.
The water issues in the Central Valley (where I have lived) are more a function of the Enviro goal to control and strangle businesses/industries with whom they disagree or wish to destroy or control.
Air and water regulations have increasingly been politically and unscientifically driven, and has resulted in artificially created scarcity, such as what happens when a non-endangered species of fish is fraudulently declared endangered, and farming water is diverted to ‘aid’ the fish, and flushed out into the ocean instead of being used to grow food and recharge waning aquifers.
The solutions to these problems are clear, but require the enviro ECO mob to stop creating laws and cause and action that require increasing regulations, and outright theft of scarce water supplies.
Building more dams and increasing the storage capacity of existing dams would help increase more supply, and clean energy, but that is against the ECO/Enviro NGO agenda, and they stonewall it at every turn….then blame Farmers.
But they are unwilling to return Hetch-Hechy to its original state, destroying the Bay Area’s largest supply of fresh water, so it is a ‘do as I say and not as I do’ situation that lays bare the real agenda: control water (by legislated theft) and you control food and people.
This is wrong…it is stealing. It is also destroying needed infrastructure.
Stop the agenda to create artificial water scarcity and problems, stop efforts to steal water supply.
Build more dams so there is plenty of water for everyone for years to come.
Better yet, cancel the train scam and build a dam.
Then you get useful infrastructure, more water, for more food, for more people, clean power and jobs.
Unless the Sierra Club and other Enviro groups oppose it that is…which they have.
Same people who supported cheap toxic chinese solar panels and rare earth chinese magnetics that went into 90%+ of the wind turbines produced for California and other places, with the consequent environmental devastation in china from manufacturing practices that they KNEW were the worst on the planet. The enviros in their zeal to support ‘clean energy’ merely shifted and augmented pollution overseas, and all that coal ash still falls on US soil….all the contaminated radioactive rare earth mine tailings water from China still comes here eventually, and into our aquatic food supply.
Do these eco groups oppose that? No…except through lip service maybe…but nothing of any substance.
This is not about the environment or water or clean air….it is about centralized control of resources, food and energy.
If this trend is not stopped, it will not end well for any of us….even the enviros.
You cannot control something (a business, an economy or an air or water district) and make it ‘better’ by strangling it into submission and stealing resources….you may end up killing it….and the very resources and industries upon which we all rely for our standard of living.
I have lived and worked many years in Ag, in Hi Tech and in Energy, so I’ve seen all sides, pro and con….and I know a con when I see one.
We need more water, not less, so we need to build.
We also need to respect property rights of our neighbors, and stop using the environment as an excuse to steal.
I guess some of the enviro crowd were not raised with such morals, but that is another problem…
