Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said Monday that California’s water crisis is the result of “liberal environmentalists” who are “willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology.”
“With different policies over the last 20 years, all of this could be avoided,” Fiorina said on Glenn Beck’s radio program. “Despite the fact that California has suffered from droughts for millennia, liberal environmentalists have prevented the building of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades during a period in which California’s population has doubled.”
Fiorina said that as a result, 70 percent of California’s rainfall “washes out to sea” year after year.....
It’s silly to think that California will shed industry, population and food production even with a prolonged drought. Already there is talk about building desalination plants, and building canals from the northern states and British Columbia. California, with a stand-alone GDP of $2.2 trillion, is able to buy its way out of the water shortage.
Look at what the Jews are doing in Israel. It's a desert and they export fruit with minimal water. Strawberries from sand.
Plus here in America we release water and even knock down dams because the courts say that we are harming the fish.
