Water, not rail

California is in a drought. We hear this over and over. Why don’t we spend the billions allocated to the “train to nowhere” to finding a solution to the water problems?

Let’s start with giving our farmers their fair share so they can grow the many crops we need and help employ the many people that are out of work in the agricultural areas. Too many trees and crops are being uprooted because there is not enough water to keep them going.

How many people are actually going to ride this train on a regular basis? We need water now!
