Farming in the Central Valley of California, once the breadbasket of America, has almost ceased entirely because of environmentalist trying to protect a fish that may not even be a unique species, much less endangered.
In February 2014 I posted the following quote from the Herald and News in 2009:
“Thousands of people have also become unemployed or lost the ability to farm, which adversely affects both local and national economies.
“In addition to the California drought, there has been court-ordered protection of a 2-inch smelt fish that has stopped the pumping of water from the delta that is necessary for agriculture in central California. If it is listed as an endangered species, it’s likely that California agriculture, which supplies a third of the nation’s food supply, will be permanently changed.”
I also included the following vacation picture:
Fast forward to the present. One America News posted the following video on YouTube on November 27th:
Meanwhile, some of the most fertile land in the country lies idle. Common sense has taken a vacation.
