    Lisa might want to check into the server drought conditions in California, and the west, and give up on her ludicrous aim at “water projects” and trying to blame Obama. Being on a well myself, I’m just north of the border, but VERY concerned about our third year of drought, and weather in the 50’s and dry for the next couple weeks when we SHOULD be in the 20’s and 30’s with snow every few days.

    Here’s a group that supports Ms Benson. The jist, “California can’t tunnel its way out of drought conditions.”

    And why isn’t the one trick pony Lisa cartooning about the corporate poisoning of the water in West Virginia?

    Yes. Lisa’s point is far from clear, but if she thinks it’s because Calfornia isn’t taxed enough (revenue) to pay for water projects, she’s not making her usual nonthinking anti-tax, anti-Democratic position. But the lack of water is because there’s no precipitation in the Sierras, not because there aren’t enough canals. Quick test: are all the canals at capacity? Oh, and to the other posters, there are no socialists in state government in California. Fact.

    There is no need to fund further water projects in California, the infrastructure for more than enough water flow is already in place. It’s the WATER (ah, the Olympia beer motto) that is the problem, and the missing element. Lisa’s entire knowledge of environmental issues is smaller than that single drip from the pipe.

    @Overtaxed

    Over 90% of the water used in California goes to agribusiness. If they save just 5% of their water is would be more than the 20% governor Brown wants to conserve. And by far the most of that food is exported out of the state anyway. If we in California produce less, then enjoy your increased food prices!!

    @Robert Landers

    Personally, I think we are indeed going to have to have more money for water projects. It is just that those projects are going to have to be to build salt water desalinization plants along our extensive coast line. The Pacific Ocean itself is by far the largest single water source in the world, let alone California, but it is indeed going to cost considerable funding to be able to make use of it. And the water from such projects should go exclusively for residential use. There is plenty of waste water that can be treated (again. perhaps new facilities will be needed) for industrial and agricultural use. This is especially true if salt water desalinization is used for residential use.


    Of course, we must first convince our more conservative members of the state legislature of this immediate need. As most of these more conservative members come from the agribusiness area of the state then perhaps actually cutting the water use for that business just might get their attention, nothing else seems to be working!!

    You mean the water that’s sitting in half a dozen reserviors that the EPA banned the use of in the name of som “threatened” smelt fish?

    @Robert Landers

    Were you arguing with yourself there Robert Landers?
    -
    We will probably spend trillions of dollars on desalinization plants and feed the unions, only to shut the plants down as soon as they get going because of some threat to a sea scallop or something? That is usually par for the course.

    Overtaxed: give it a rest, we realize both of your brain cells are overtaxed from those prions from eating roadkill.


    Cube, name one reservoir at normal fill levels. Granted, your septic is clogged tight with no water in it, but that doesn’t make it an information source for your “facts”.

    We have higher obesity rates due to depression – the realization that there are three long years left. I think I’ll have another donut, it’s better than crack.
