image House Passes Salmon-Killing Drought Relief Bill 120_innocent_util_proven_guilty.jpg original image ( 526x394) - by Dan Bacher
or many years, corporate agribusiness interests and their Astroturf groups, including the Coalition for a Sustainable Delta and the Latino Water Coalition, have blamed Endangered Species Act protections for Delta smelt and Central Valley Chinook salmon for creating an alleged "Dust Bowl" on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley. However, the campaign to blame Delta smelt and salmon for reductions in Delta exports was shown to be a big “red herring,” pardon the pun, when Restore the ...

The map below illustrates voting patterns in the City of Fresno in the November 2012 presidential race. Red = Romney and Blue = Obama. All but a few precincts in the far north of the city voted for Obama. However, voter turnout in north Fresno is much higher (85%) than in the southeast and southwest (sometimes as low as 20%). It is low voter turnout that makes it possible for conservative Republicans to dominate the political landscape in Fresno.

Fortunately, the State Department didn't pick Chevron as one of the three winners of the "corporate excellence" award on December 9. "We organized a big letter with 30 NGOs signing on and a petition to oppose the award and fortunately Chevron lost today," said Paul Paz y Miño of Amazon Watch. (http://amazonwatch.org/) Instead, Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment Catherine Novelli presented the Secretary of State's 2014 Award for Corporate Excellence (...

"We urge a no vote on H.R. 5781, to avoid Congress micromanaging water usage and allocation in California," EWC Co-Facilitators Conner Everts and David Nesmith wrote. "Before allowing disruption of California’s 150-year old water rights system and major federal environmental protection laws, EWC wants Congress to undertake careful deliberation over H.R. 5781 by both houses."

image House 'Drought Relief' Bill Would Eviscerate Environmental Protections 120_h.r._5781.jpg original image ( 550x365) - by Dan Bacher
“This bill will actually perpetuate our drought emergency by giving away all the water in storage to Big Ag,” said Tom Stokely, water policy analyst for the California Water Impact Network. “It will drain Trinity Lake, depleting the last cold water reserve available for Klamath and Trinity River salmon and steelhead. We’ll see fish kills that make the great die-off of 2002 look minor by comparison."

The proposed use of the dedicated license funds to "manage" the alleged "marine protected areas" would have been a great mockery of justice, considering that these "marine protected areas" are not authentic ones that actually protect the ocean. The questionable "marine protected areas" created under the MLPA Initiative fail to protect the ocean from fracking, oil drilling, corporate aquaculture, pollution, military testing and all human impacts other than fishing and gathering.

VAN NUYS, Calif.— The California Fish and Game Commission today enacted emergency protections for tricolored blackbirds in response to a petition (see PDF) filed by the Center for Biological Diversity in October. The commission has protected the tricolored blackbird under the California Endangered Species Act for 180 days. The Department of Fish and Wildlife will next evaluate the petition and recommend to the commission whether to protect tricolors on a permanent basis and impose limits on...

"We really worry about the framing of research, and the pollution of its intent and findings, when it is wholly funded by those with a massive financial stake in the outcome," said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Executive Director of Restore the Delta. "We also find it equally disturbing that academic leaders in water spend such little time studying, developing, and creating plans for implementing water technologies that could help alleviate problems with drought. Instead, they continue to promo...
