California sends fresh water to a saltwater delta over farmland to protect a little fish with little to no utility.

:lmao:Can't make this shit up if you tried.  Hey lets water the oceans instead of the crops.

The delta smelt, an unassuming, finger-size fish with little utility beyond its role as an environmental sentry, has been at the center of California’s water wars for nearly three decades. The “biological opinion” — released jointly on Tuesday by the Interior Department and the Commerce Department — reverses scientific findings made a decade ago, which granted Endangered Species Act protections for certain types of West Coast salmon and the smelt.

 

Those protections ensured that the California rivers and bays in which the fish swim would get preference over irrigation systems in times of drought. Multiple scientific reports have concluded that diverting those waters could threaten water birds and killer whales, harm commercial fisheries and promote toxic algal blooms.

  • Highmark changed the title to California sends fresh water to a saltwater delta over farmland to protect a little fish with little to no utility.

Hopefully the Cartels finish the take over in California and it just becomes Mexico again.  Already starting.

The world has gone batshit. Save the fish at the expense of humans

A fish that even the NYT's admits serves no real utility.   What in the actual fuck is wrong with those people?

Idiots making decisions that they really feel are for the average person when most times they are nothing of the sort.  In that case its more about hurting what they feel are wealthy farmers than helping that little fucking fish or the environment.   

Best part is California wants American taxpayers to pay for diverting water from the GL's or Mississippi River out to them while they vote people into office that intentionally pump fresh water into the fucking ocean. FUBAR.
