By the way, the tunnel being proposed is 45 miles long and so wide in diameter (29 feet) that small planes could fly through it.
Maybe the state could sponsor flight competitions to help pay the cost of building the thing. They certainly won’t be able to use it full-time for conveying water. Even Northern California can’t produce 15,000 cfs of water 24/7/365.
And we can create jobs in California for pilots providing tunnel inspection services.
I have written letters, signed petitions and shared posts all over Facebook. I have spoken to people in grocery stores and other places. I am still amazed that so few people seem aware of what’s going on here. How do we wake people up? Civil disobedience, anyone? There is more to this than environmental concerns. What about the human rights violations inherent in the destruction of the delta’s water quality and loss of huge quantities of drinkingable water throughout the affected region?
Great site. A lot of useful information here. I’m sending it to some friends!
