Oh my God, the pipeline is being built and the power plants are being completed. Our pollution is going to go up and no one will be able to live in the Valley except the few farmers left. And the Salton Sea will dry up and millions of dollars that is brought in by the sea will be lost.
Now the farmers are getting subsidized for growing asparagus. It is one of the worst field-burning crops there is, next to wheat. That will cause more pollution. Another thing: if the farmers fallow their land, there won't be enough food for the country.
And now the major one. The Imperial Irrigation District will go broke because these water-wasting, field-burning farmers are going to have to fallow. We won't have any power. Do you really believe this crap that these farmers are putting out?
The farmers should do something about the pollution they cause in the Valley and the PM10 levels that have caused the county to not meet the requirements for clean air.
