Gary Wockner of the SavetheColoroado.org and SaveThePoudre.org says that we need to conserve water instead of building more dams. The oil cartels are taking over with the appointments of oil drillers and climate deniers to be the Secretaries of State and of Interior, and head of the the BLM. We can replace our thirsty lawns with xeriscapes. We can buy the water from corn and hay farmers, who mostly sell their crops to feed cattle to make cheap beef. California is already switching to conservation, as there is not water left to divert from streams. We need to join environmental groups to counter the oil developers and dam builders.
