It's All About the Water

Was going to take a break until after the Holiday, but this could not wait.
After reading the story below, I knew I would be writing today.
Those of you who read this Blog know of my deep concern for Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades.
They have both suffered severely at the hands of greedy, selfish Humans for so long that it may already be too late to save either.
This of course is not even considering the wildlife at both places who have already been displaced for lack of food.
Everything leaves when the water levels drop to where they are now and have been for years.
Habitats are destroyed and wildlife moves on hoping for a better place to live in peace.
This story only describes the truth that we all knew was there, being carefully, deliberately, hidden behind closed political doors.
As I have said many times in my life, water isn't the only thing in life that matters, it's just the most important.
California has been poisoning their water for nearly a century now and the cancer deaths and sickness in the entire state are the result.
As my favorite Geology Professor at CSUN once said, what they have done to the water in the San Joaquin Valley will take 10,000 years to correct.
We are out of time people, wake up.
Water is the lifeblood of  all living things.
It must be protected because money can not buy it back once it is poisoned.
