Time to Take Action
Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.


Green advocacy groups are strongly political

Herald and News Letter to the Editor July 21, 2009 by Nita Still, Montague

On July 7 was a meeting with the California State Water Resources Control Board.

The meeting was about TMDLs or “total maximum daily load.” This has to do with how water can be used, as well as what they say pollutes water.

Supposedly, they were organized to unpollute the Klamath River, per the green advocacy group.

The third person to speak was a member of the River Keepers.

This River Keeper praised the TMDL panel, then proceeded to tell them things to do with the TMDLs. Then she said, very definitely, “The dams will be removed.” No one clapped for her and one person gave a short boo.

With the support of ignorant, uninformed people, whose money helps these groups, they are very organized and very political.

They have the determination and money to carry out their sinister plans for wilderness under the guise of “saving the planet for future use.” They are using the Endangered Species Act and the Environmental Protection Agency to do so.

These agencies are also involved with the incidental take permit of fish on farms and ranches.

They are manipulating our economy, society and the environment, using laws, with the help of California Sen. Barbara Boxer, judges, governors, our Congress and the ignorance of too many people who are helping them to impinge upon our freedoms and ignore our Constitution.

They are very detrimental to the well-being of common sense.

This panel knew nothing abut Senate Bill 787, when I asked them if and how changing navigable waters, to all waters which the federal government would own, would affect what they were doing.

They knew nothing about that bill which is before Congress.

Editor’s note: SB 787 deals with the Federal Water Pollution Control Act which proponents say will clarify the jurisdiction of the United States over waters of the United States.
