A federal judge on Friday rejected an effort by commercial anglers, tribes and environmental groups seeking to force the government to release more water to the Klamath River instead of diverting it to farms.
Commercial fishermen sued the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the National Marine Fisheries Service last month, arguing that water being stored for farmers should be released to help young salmon migrate to the ocean.
Lyin' sack of feces....unless that's lib-speak for shut the water off completely!!!!!!
And what about the farmers loosing their farms...and the dam paid by the sweat of farmers sicnce the area was founded... .enquiring minds want to know....
Why is it so sad? All your nice friends are taking care of them.
There will be no excessively warm water to kill the smolt this year.
Now we have TWO sets of crybabies going after the federally-subsidized water.
There is no reason whatsoever not to support the farmers, I have articles upon articles where the US Fish and WildLife took clubs and beat salmon in the head to kill them!
These landowners were given the lands as long as they meet certain demands and that they have done and paid for time and time again!
I must be asleep. When I read this, U.S. District Judge Saundra Armstrong said Friday there is not enough scientific evidence to prove the salmon need more water at this time.
I know that I must be dreaming or having a conservative fantasy!
What is this world coming to, a judge saying there was not enough scientific evidence to back up the Rural Cleansing arguments of the enviral nazis and their pawns in court.
Baby Coho's do not do well with high and cold water forcing them downstream. They like to take their time getting down stream and make take up to a year and half to get to the ocean. This so called need for more water is all more of an Enviral Nazi lie. This specie does not want a lot of high/fast/cold water as it meanders down stream after being hatched.
To begin with there were never any native Coho in the Klamath System. They came from Oregon hatchery Cohos in the early 1900's. If we run short, we can borrow a couple of million from Oregon where they have so many the past two years, they have to kill them with baseball bats.
Besides that, another judge has ruled on scientific DNA results not enviral Bravo Sierra, there is no genetic difference between a native Coho and the hatchery Coho!
Since the Spotted Owl fiasco, the enviral nazis and their Gestapo rangers have been lying to enact their rural cleansing actions. Time to start cleansing America of the Bravo Sierra put out by the enviral Nazis!
