California water follies

Imagine we build a 500-mile canal through the heart of California and design powerful pumps to lift the water over a couple of mountain ranges at enormous expense.

This project is intended to deliver water to agriculture and to Southern California families. But when the project is finished, a group of people say a small fish is in danger of extinction. So this huge project is almost shut down over a fish, and water is rationed to farms and families.

Folks, if this makes sense to you then support this insanity. However, it makes no sense to me!
