image Drought Shows Folly of Jerry Brown's Delta Tunnels 120_220px-edmund_g_brown_jr.jpg original image ( 220x330) - by Dan Bacher
"It is lucky for the South of Delta agricultural Central Valley Project contractors (and Kern County Water Agency) that the tunnels were not already built," said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of RTD. "If so, they would have had to pay hundreds of millions of dollars with no water supply."

image Poll reveals most voters oppose Governor Brown's 'big government projects' 120_jerry_brown.jpg original image ( 785x521) - by Dan Bacher
There is no doubt that Governor's Brown's approval ratings would slip well below 50 percent if the mainstream media and corporate "environmental" NGOs would stop greenwashing the Governor's environmental record and report the truth about Brown's war on fish, water and the environment.

The common link in much of the destruction and mayhem I’ve described in my articles is Jerry Brown, the worst Governor for fish, water and the environment in recent California history. Brown has constantly gushed about his "green energy" and carbon trading policies at press conferences and photo opportunities while he enthusiastically supports the expansion of fracking in California and is rushing the most environmentally destructive public works project in California history, the Bay Delt...

“The steelhead died for a noble cause - almonds," quipped Bill Jennings, executive director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance (CSPA). Photo of Sammy Yoro, Jr., of Watsonville with two winter hatchery steelhead caught on the American River in January 2011 by Dan Bacher. The Bureau of Reclamation's abysmal management of Folsom Reservoir and the American River during a record drought has resulted in the destruction of the once abundant steelhead population that anglers, N...

“Governor Brown’s oil regulators have issued rules for fracking before they’ve even finished studying it, putting the cart before the horse and endangering lives," said David Braun in a statement before the hearing on behalf of Californians Against Fracking. "Unsurprisingly, this is the same agency responsible for issuing hundreds of illegal permits for the disposal of oil industry wastewater into multiple protected drinking water aquifers."

Water rights attorney and C-WIN Board Member Mike Jackson said, “Evidently after the Bureau of Reclamation’s killing of 95% of the endangered winter-run salmon year last year, the Federal government has decided to propose a much worse water plan for 2015. It’s a much more complicated plan, but if it is approved by the California Water Board it may send both the endangered salmon and Delta smelt to extinction. We will find out soon if the Governor’s office intervenes with the Water Boa...
