[Ed. – There will be a legal fight over this. The California Democrats are already screaming bloody murder. But it never made sense to artificially run 50% of California’s annual Sierra snowfall off into the Pacific instead of using it for agriculture and human life. “Artificially” means that running the snowfall off directly through one big river into the Pacific isn’t even what nature would do, unprompted. Activists and the government had to engineer the California water shortages. Stay tuned.]
President Trump on Wednesday signed an order in California to re-engineer the state’s water plans, completing a campaign promise to funnel water from the north to a thirsty agriculture industry and growing population further south.
The ceremonial order comes after the Department of the Interior late last year reversed its opinion on scientific findings that for a decade extended endangered species protections to various types of fish — a review that had been spurred by the order from Trump.
Trump said the changes to the “outdated scientific research and biological opinions” would now help direct “as much water as possible, which will be a magnificent amount, a massive amount of water for the use of California farmers and ranchers.”
