  •  Got Water? (1+ / 0-)

    when is someone going to stand up to RP and say, "got water?"  do the industries that he wants to take back to TX need water?  do the employees need water?  does the increase in population from the business he wants to steal need to drink/use water?
    texas has a drought and also an energy policy that uses precious water for fracking.  
    (even tho CA fracks and wastes water, the process is not as wasteful.  it still pollutes, tho!

    In parts of Texas, fracking a well often takes 6 million gallons.
    But in California, where fracking is starting to spread, the average amount of water involved is just 164,000 gallons, according to industry data.

      all of a sudden is going to leap to the top of the list. TX is heading for a world of hurt on water. CA has plenty (sorta) but it falls in the north and the central valley wants it all. Climate change will really drag water front and center.

      if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.
