Big Oil has spent over $63 million on lobbying in Sacramento since 2009 - by Dan Bacher
Only in the oil-soaked politics of "Green California" would an oil lobbyist charged with the task of creating "marine protected areas" go on record against protecting a "state marine reserve" from oil drilling!

LOS ANGELES – At City Hall on August 13, City Councilmember Paul Koretz, Los Angeles residents and California climate and water experts called on Big Oil to stop wasting California’s water.

546,335 Acres in 9 Western States Proposed as Critical Habitat for Yellow-billed Cuckoos - by Center for Biological Diversity
SACRAMENTO, Calif.— The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today proposed to protect more than a half-million acres of critical habitat across the West for the yellow-billed cuckoo, a songbird that lives along rivers and streams. The bird was proposed for Endangered Species Act protection in October 2013 as part of a 2011 agreement with the Center for Biological Diversity to speed protection decisions for 757 imperiled species nationwide. Today’s proposal would protect 546,335 acres of stream...

Governor Brown signs tunnels-enabling water bond - by Dan Bacher
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Restore the Delta Executive Director, disagreed that the bond is "tunnels neutral." She responded to the passage of the bill by stating, "The passage of a water bond with BDCP funds for flows is unfortunate." "Instead of presenting a tunnels-neutral water bond, the governor has chosen to risk our water project bonds by tying his tunnels to it. There are so many projects we all can agree on. Leaving this section in the bill was a big mistake," she emphasized. P...

Tribal protesters urge Secretary Jewell to stop Klamath River fish kill - by Dan Bacher
Chairwoman Vigil-Masten also mentioned the lack of water in the Klamath and Trinity rivers having a profound impact on tribal members, especially during a time when there are no jobs, a lack of industry and a lack of financial resources. “But, the people taking the water are doing quite well,” said Vigil-Masten. “To me, it’s really frustrating to that millions of dollars are being made on the backs of our salmon and our drinking water.”

Governor Brown’s water bond will be a referendum on tunnels - by Dan Bacher
Water law export John Herrick said, "Hence, any proposal for state or federal funding of new habitat for fish rearing or purchased water for fishery flows is a transfer of the projects' contractors' obligations onto the general public. Such a transfer is not just bad policy, it is illegal."

Water bond includes $485 million to buy water for Brown’s death tunnels - by Dan Bacher
“This bond proposal gives the Brown administration $485 million to buy water to be pumped into the tunnels,” said RTD Executive Director Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla. “It contains false protections for the Delta, and we call upon legislators, especially those representing the Delta, to vote against it. We are not fooled, and this bond will become a referendum on the tunnels. That is not going to advance the water solutions we need.” Photo of Governor Brown meeting with his legislati...

Federal Court Strikes Down Illegal Permit for Avenal Power Plant - by Center for Biological Diversity
SAN FRANCISCO— The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals today struck down an illegal permit that would have allowed Avenal Power to build a new gas-fired power plant in Avenal, Calif. In 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency issued a permit for the project that illegally waived its need to comply with air quality safeguards. Had this permit gone through, the plant would have been built in one of the most polluted and economically disadvantaged areas of the San Joaquin Valley.

Jerry Brown signs legislation to extend water bond deadline - by Dan Bacher
"The governor and others claim their proposals are ‘tunnels neutral’ while at the same time funding mitigation or replacement water,” said Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta. “If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and quacks like a duck; it’s a duck. These provisions quack loudly and they say, ‘thanks for funding activities essential to building the massive water export tunnels for a few mega-grower billionaires.” Photo of Governor Jerry Brown at...
