Eber: Soap On A Rope

Editorial

By Stephen Frank 

California voters, several years ago, approved $2.7 billion to build water storage facilities—the Democrats refuse to spend the money.  Guv Newsom is spending over $300 million of our money to demolish dams in Oregon—that bring water and energy to California.  California government allows millions of acres a day of water to flow into the ocean, mostly to protect some fish or too lazy to save the water.  Literally, the active policy of Sacramento is to LIMIT water for the people of the State.

President Trump offered Federal funds to expand the Shasta Dam by 100 feet—no State money was needed—and Guv Brown and Lt. Guv Newsom turned it down.

“So what can be done to improve the quality and quantity of water throughout the State?  While conservation of existing resources will continue to play a large role in making allocations to agricultural and residential needs, such work does not provide long term solutions.

Neither does construction of desalinization plants.  While these facilities prove to be popular with environmental groups, they are expensive to operate and currently do not offer enough output to change existing conditions.  In addition these desalinization plants require a huge amount of energy to operate.  Solar and wind power sources do not make even a minor dent powering these huge projects in Southern California.

Water is available—California Democrats do not want you to have it.
