|Thank you to those that reply to my emails regarding the sordid things happening in CA water world. If you're short on time, please just watch the videos, then understand that the water you see in the aquaduct was meant to flow out to the SF Bay and Delta, not sold for profit.
It is incumbent upon every Californian, especially Northern Californian to understand the term "paper water". Do not get suckered by thinking that this is a farming-to-feed-the-world.... Unless you plan to fight world hunger with pistachios, POM, alfalfa, cotton, and cuttie oranges.
Very good short and concise video (see above) that summarizes the scheme by Resnick, Westlands, et. al. This video doesn't scratch the surface of all the corruption, but it provides a good basis for understanding the collusion between tax payer funded Federal and State Public Trust Agencies and the Water Contractors. It has a water-for-salmon message, but the video was put together by Salmon Water Now. Hopefully, in short order, the general public will wake up so that it is not just fishing conservation groups fighting the good fight. Then, maybe videos of this nature will be produced in greater detail by more mainstream activists.
I would very much appreciate those of you with Facebook accounts to reference the links above. I honestly think that the lack of public outrage and request of accountability from "Princess DiFi", Boxer, Brown, Guvinator, Steinberg, Gray Davis, Pete Wilson, Gavin Newsome, H. Clinton, Obama, McCain, et. al. is due to lack of awareness or caring. Maybe someday, there will be enough interest to demand accountabilty, but I surmise that by then, the rigging will be so one side it will be too difficult to unravel.
So, what has been done to combat the problem:
Here are some links to articles on actions we (CSPA) are taking to rectify the damage done by the Public Trust Agencies in collusion with the Water Contractors....Long and expensive lawsuits that WE shouldn't have to file if the Agencies obeyed the laws of the land!
Please note that CSPA's annual budget is roughtly $80K a year. It's all based on contributions by donors, like me. $80K is a drop in the bucket when compared to the warchest of Resnick and Westlands.
If you have any suggestions on how to rid our state of these now corrupt Public Trust Agencies short of a revolution, I'd like to hear about them....
Thanks for your time and concern.
