Humboldt County, Hoopa Valley Tribe Warn Tunnels Could Take Trinity Water - by Dan Bacher
“Ours is not a speculative concern,” said Leonard Masten of the Hoopa Valley Tribe. “Last year federal, state, and tribal fishery agencies forecasted a potentially devastating fish kill in the Klamath River because of low Klamath basin water supplies and a record-high population of returning fall Chinook. Reclamation took action and set aside 92,000 acre-feet of Trinity River Division water and released nearly 39,000 acre-feet of additional water to avoid a disaster.”

KPFA's Flashpoints, 4/2/13 at 5 p.m., 94.1 FM started their show with a hair-raising eyewitness description by tree sitters on the phone of dozens of California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers, costing the taxpayers at least $100,000 a year and up plus benefits, viciously arresting non-violent tree sitters, including the CHP use of rubber bullets today near Willits, and then allowing huge old trees to be cut down.

“Disgusting Draft” Of California Hydraulic Fracturing Regulations - by Tomas DiFiore
DOGGR has falsely presented the nature of the activities covered by - and thereby the actual need for “new Regulations” and thusly the applicability of said regulations, to the Public and the State of California. From definitions that neither match what is effectively legal in terms of law nor the industry standards of related new technology processes, linguistics and terminology, Californians will be left considering the wrong regulations.
