  •  And we in the CA Delta are giving a thumbs down (10+ / 0-)

    to the Tunnels!! Oct 1st - is the day that Jerry Brown wants a thumbs up to the tunnels from the federal govt. Today, the River News Herald came out with a great story and RWL the local editorial cartoonist inked a really good one. Not only because it mentions our business going high and dry (it won't - we're at sea level) but it captures perfectly what is going on up here. Please follow kossack Dan Bacher for the latest and greatest on the biggest CA water grab ever!

    Tour of the Delta showcases what’s at stake for California

    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.

    •  and two more articles from other north cal areas (7+ / 0-)

      one Sac-Bee article, they get it, and it is way worse than anything  Dan Bacher has described even..

      and the Humboldt (county) Times Standard

      both links here

      they are getting it, and regionally they are getting it,  

          But the tribes are way on the job, I am seeing a regional response to this divisive problem.
         Already the development, oh wait, 'Farming' interests are whining about the divisive opposition.
         These interests are farmers all right, their crop is water rights. And always have been even when their cover crop was cotton.
        These guys are farmers and I am an Olympic athlete and a journalist.

      This machine kills Fascists.

        the damage to the Delta and the north is horrifying. That SacBee article really stirred folks up. The DH is out there on all the articles and blogs making comments. The north tribes are all over it. For that we are grateful. I don't know how much you read on this stuff but watch out for California Farm Water Coalition/Mike Wade. He is a total mouthpiece for the tunnels. DH has been sparring with him for awhile. DH started signing his comments with the sig line "Money Goes Where Water Flows". Mike responded a few months later by creating a website pushing Kern County CA water interests with that name! My DH responded by mailing him copies of the bumper stickers we had made - Money Flows Where Water Goes" - Don't Sell Out The Delta! I have been seeing more of them around town lately! kosmail me with an snailmail address if you would like one. Otherwise, I will have a shit ton of them at NN13.
