Politicians…you can’t trust ’em! California for a long time now, Governor Jerry Brown has been dangling the carrot of habitat restoration to help people get on board with his plan to divert water from the Delta to the south via two massive tunnels.
But now, suddenly, he’s announcing that he wants to dramatically reduce the amount of habitat restoration and protection in the plan.
His reason? To make the permitting easier!
What kind of messed up world do we live in where it is easier to get permits to build gargantuan tunnels to suck an ecosystem dry than it is to get the proper paperwork for restoring habitat??
