A President Who Gets It!!
As much as they claim to embrace diversity, they don't like any diversity when it comes to ideas regarding water policy.
Jul 13, 2019
The Trump administration is taking the lead on new rules governing pumping regulations in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Of course the scientific community in California is in full panic mode. They say the "Department of the Interior is interfering with the science and that bringing in a new team to re-write the scientific documents was, to their knowledge, unprecedented."
All "unprecedented" means is that it hasn't been done before. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. In California the water bureaucracy has made sure that the entire scientific community is on the same page. As much as they claim to embrace diversity, they don't like any diversity when it comes to ideas regarding water policy. NRDC attorneys and scientists move smoothly back and forth between the environmental community and the government water bureaucracy.
The Trump administration has their own group of scientists, administrators and biologists who have different ideas. This is not acceptable to California's like-minded scientific community.
John McManus, president of the Golden Gate Salmon Association, says the "record will ultimately show that the Trump Administration simply didn’t like the truth, and so they’re taking steps to replace their own staff who told the truth with new staff who will give them an answer they want to hear.” That's because California long ago got rid of the anyone who didn't agree with their truth. There are different opinions when it comes to pumping regulations in the delta. You just won't hear it from the same old network of California same-thought biologists.
As they say, elections matter. The Trump administration is bringing some much needed diversity of thought to this issue. Finally, a President who gets it.
