In reference to your opinion piece on the Salton Sea, it was excellent.
The amazing thing about all of this is that San Diego and Los Angeles want Imperial County to suffer so that they can replace water they have been taking for decades illegally from the Colorado River. They have overdrawn from the river and have come to depend on it.
Now, they have to give it up to other states who have equal rights to the Colorado River water and they are willing to stop agriculture, put Imperial County workers out of work and kill the Salton Sea, which will result in the largest ecological disaster in the history of California and probably the western United States.
Sure, why not? Anything to make it easier for L.A. and San Diego to continue building new homes, letting more people move in, requiring more water, so we can go through this again in the future somewhere else.
