We need water for California’s farmers

California is the “bread basket” of the world, and you have to have water to grow crops. Last year the government shut off the water in the Tulelake Agricultural District because of an endangered species of fish. Now the ranchers are suing the government, as they needed the water to grow their crops. What is more important, fish or the survival of the human species?

Is it better to let the water run out to the ocean?

The population of our country is growing by leaps and bounds; won’t they need water and crops?
