It comes down to this: Which do we think is more important, families or fish?

While California is clearly experiencing another drought, the extreme water shortages are an ongoing and man-made human tragedy — one that has been brought on by overzealous liberal environmentalists who continue to devalue the lives and livelihoods of California residents in pursuit of their own agenda. It comes down to this: Which do we think is more important, families or fish?

With different policies over the last 20 years, all of this could have been avoided. Droughts are nothing new in California — the state has suffered from them for centuries. The difference now is that government policies are making it much worse. Despite the awareness around this issue, liberals continue to develop and promote policies which allow much of California’s rainfall to wash out to sea.

Specifically, these policies have resulted in the diversion of more than 300 billion gallons of water away from farmers in the Central Valley and into the San Francisco Bay in order to protect the Delta smelt, an endangered fish that environmentalists have continued to champion at the expense of Californians. This water is simply being washed out to sea, instead of being channeled to the people who desperately need it.........

I have a sister who lives in northern California. She's not a conservative, but now fears that by this summer she may have to purchase bottled water from grocery stores in order to survive.

I know nothing about this particular issue, but who says the Freepers are wrong? If this tragic situation really has been a matter of families or fish, the only sane choice is (or should have been) families.

@wmwcjr,
Environmentalists going way too far with their idiotic agendas. In my opinion they should be defunded or completely desolved. The're not needed anyway. But, as much as I hate to say it, California did it to itself by always voting liberal. Now they have all those nuts runing that state to the ground. And the Holywood is only adding gasoline to the fire.

@andy31,
That's basically the reality of the situation. We're dealing with some very stupid and evil people here. Part of their ideology left-over from several decades ago and thoroughly debunked amounts to a belief that the planet itself is badly overpopulated and already beyond its "carrying capacity" for humans. In the 1970s you read claims that we would be running of pretty much everything in another two or three decades and there was a famous case of a book called "The Population Bomb" and its author, Paul Ehrlich, who made a wager with the economist Julian Simon on a line-item basis involving several metal commodities

http://www.perc.org/articles/betting-wealth-nature

The general gist of Simon's claims is borne out by looking at prices over the entire 20'th century. There is no limit to human imagination and we will always find substitutes for anything which turns up scarce temporarily.

Nonetheless the idiots go on with their bullshit. You even get lunatics like Prince Phillip claiming they'd like to be reincarnated as some deadly virus to help bring human population back under control for the glory of "Gaea(TM)".

But in real life the entire human population of the world could fit comfortably in Texas and the planet could support at least 100 times its present human population.
