Brown’s Water Policies Causes 8% DROP in Agriculture Production in 2015

Thanks to the confused governor, in 2015 water meant for people and farming went to fish and to flow out to the ocean.  We expected a loss of jobs and revenues.  Now we know the extent of the revenue loss due to the confusion of Brown—her thought he represented fish not people.

“The production value of California’s farms and ranches fell by $9.5 billion, or more than 8 percent last year compared to 2014, to a total of $47,071,513, according to preliminary data from the USDA’s Economic Research Service.

Despite the drop, California remains the leading agricultural state in the nation.

The numbers reflect drought impacts in 2015, which led to the fallowing of 540,000 acres. But the data also reflect changes in currency exchange rates as well as global supply and demand, including a burgeoning milk supply and a slowdown in export demand, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture.”

The 2016 will be worse.  But, Brown is meeting his goal of killing off the California agriculture industry.  Less jobs, less revenues, more water for fish and the ocean.  People will suffer—the only good news is that there will be fewer jobs for illegal aliens.  The bad news is that they will need more welfare assistance.

This has been a can kick down the road for decades. I have no respect for Moonbeam, but other governors have done little, if any, better.

There’s a complex of supply and demand with NO consideration for increasing supply. Do NOT expect any beneficial changes coming from Sacramento as long as the same politicians are (re) elected. You get the government you deserve when you are willfully deluded at the voting booth. It’s expressed in policies that hurt those that study the issues as much as those who don’t; and that’s the shame.

8% drop! This is catastrophic. More to follow with some of the insane legislation and regulatoria coming.
