    runs through the Delta.  How is it supposed to avoid the effects of an earthquake?  I know that is what they say, but the people pushing the new pipeline always lie especially when they steal water and avoid required water flows through the Delta.  They were met with shotguns when they went on private land in the Delta.  No one wants this pipeline who lives near the Delta.  It costs lots of money.  How can they afford it?  Why not expand the desalinization process for the fat cats in the central valley?  The fish are just starting to return after 3 empty years and many years of water theft until the feds starting watching.  Shame on Jerry Brown.

    •  It won't. But once that water goes into the ground (4+ / 0-)

      and disappears into the pipe - no way will we be able to get it back. And what is really hilarious in a oh fuck me running kind of way - is that the latest BDCP docs say that the south delta pumping will continue in times of drought. So their argument to put diversions north in order to curtail pumping in Tracy are just fucking bullshit. The ONLY time that fucking tunnel makes sense is in high water years. That means winter. If the Sac is flowing huge - then yea - take water. That WÖULD protect the delta smelt. But those years are the exception, not the rule. There is a reason they do not want a cost benefit analysis. Ain't no benefit. They are now having a shit fit about the latest "red flag" memos from the the feds. Truth hurts motherfuckers. Your plan will extinct the Salmon. My sig line is from last years - red flag memos. My new favorite line this year is something along the lines of "you cannot substitute sediment for food for the fishes". The fuckers are boxing themselves into a corner. And their bullshit smells worse with every new release of documents. And I do not apologize for my language. I am boiling mad at this point. I am just glad to see one of Dan's diaries hit the wreck list and maybe this issue is getting attention. I will be the fruitloop at NN13 advocating the CA Delta! heehee!!

      if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.
