Enviros want another 850,000 acre feet of water. They say it's for the health of the Delta. We want to show you some numbers that back up why we disagree with enviros about their latest water grab from farmers and residents in Southern Californian. The chart below shows that from December 1, 2010 through July 28th 29.6 million acre feet of water flowed into the Delta. Of that, 25.4 million acre feet flowed through the Delta and out to sea. You always hear enviros saying farmers use 80% of California's water, apparently thinking if they say it enough people will believe them. Maybe it's the new math. Here's the real math: If 25.4 million acre feet out of 29.6 million acre feet flowed through the Delta and out to sea, it means 86% of Delta water is not being used by humans or farms. The absurd situation is that with all this water being flushed to the ocean, the drinking water supply for 25 million people and farms who pay for 100% of their state water allocation are only receiving 80% of the contracted water they pay for. And the politicians wonder why unemployment is high and food consumers wonder why there are food shortages and higher food costs. Here's the answer...connect the dots, folks.
