Add comment on:Obama administration gives tentative approval to GE salmon
The Obama administration's tentative approval of GE salmon for human consumption occurs in the context of an administration that has continued or expanded the some of the most odious environmental policies of the Bush administration. The Obama administration is the first-ever federal administration to officially endorse the construction of a peripheral canal or tunnel, a project that will hasten the extinction of Central Valley salmon, Delta and longfin smelt and other fish species by diverting massive quantities of water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to corporate agribusiness and southern California.
