• The new left water agenda

    From MATTHEW MUNSON@VERT/IUTOPIA to All on Sunday, November 29, 2020 12:39:00
    The latest plan re water for food is laid out in the open, but has really been in the works
    for a very long time:
    1. Dump copious amount of freshwater into the Pacific Ocean under the guise of protection for Delta smelt and Chinook salmon, instead of conveying and delivering that
    historic supply to productive Ag land, and the farmers who paid to build and maintain
    the water projects.
    2. Force farmers to pump replacement groundwater, and in essence, either pay again for
    the expensive pumping of water, or take land out of production; Create a groundwater
    sustainability crisis.
    3. Pass the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (approved in 2014) limiting how
    much replacement groundwater can be pumped.
    4. Farmland without adequate surface and groundwater supplies must now be fallowed
    and loses most of its value. SGMA will take about a million acres out of production.
    5. Communities buy fallowed farmland cheap and add its groundwater to the community
    supply for SGMA compliance; Or, farmers receive groundwater credits for fallowed land
    to use on any other sections of their land still in production, and are given the  it's
    better than nothing  option for idled land to build spreads of solar panels. Governor
    Newsom s push for all renewable energy requires vast expanses of land for solar in
    sunny regions.
    6. A million acres of the most productive and richest food producing land on the planet is
    no longer available to feed a growing population, and is transformed to fields of solar
    instead to battle "climate change".

    You make it seem lovely (not).

    With all the corruption that is surfacing nowadays there is still a non-trivial chance they wonĄ't get power to carry those plans out, though.

    the water projects.

    Considering that the one state in the Lower 48 with the most Pacific
    coastline is also one that has a lot of issues with drought, that sounds
    like a dumb idea. So I would not be at all surprised if there were other motives behind it.
