If the supervisors and the state found ways to increase trees and bushes instead of hardscape andRead More low water use vegatation, GREEN would naturally take care of itself. New rules and regulations only make politicians "feel good" about the environment, but doesn't really do anything that would actually help the planet. The argument that we live in a dry area with not enough water is a complete lie. This planet is over 80% water and California and San Diego is one area which could produce more than enough by desalinization of sea water, wouldn't have to build expensive tunnels or bypass systems of northern California water. And economies of scale would bring down the cost per acre foot as long as the politicians stopped listening to years long delays by environmental activist groups which only want settlement money before a project is built.

Am I to understand that this cartoon equates illegal racketeering, conspiring to transport $2M ofRead More military arms including shoulder-launched missiles from Philippine Islamic rebels (terrorists?) and cozying up to a mobster named "Shrimp Boy" who's been involved in money-laundering, drug dealing and murder-for-hire with Republicans' interest in preserving a citizen’s fundamental Constitutional right to self-defense? Sounds to me like a pretty simplistic, biased "thought" process.

Jay is right, We can no longer pump water offshore, Toilet to tap is inevitable if we want toRead More continue to live here in the desert. And with the Sierra club shut down now would be a good time to apply for more permits to build De-Sal plants.

Ed, I don't think it was Sierra Club .. it was Coastkeeper and Surfrider that doubled the cost ofRead More the desal .. the mitigation for dumping salt water into salt water ... we need major loser pays legislation to stop these illegitimate suits .. I also think it is totally inefficient to have so many water districts in the county, Encinitas has 2 districts within its borders, maybe 3 (Leucadia ?) They all have resources and duplicate each other ... We should have a single county authority with representatives from each community. The savings would be incredible.
