In doing so, the Commission threw all of the science presented by striped bass experts Dr. Peter Moyle, Dr. David Ostrach and Dr. Cynthia LeDoux Bloom in Commission meetings into the trash can and sided with powerful corporate agribusiness interests, including the Coalition for a Sustainable Delta, ...

Yesterday Governor Gavin Newsom unveiled what he describes as a "comprehensive solution for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay Delta" through a series of voluntary agreements in an opinion piece at Cal Matters, "Gov. Newsom: California must get past differences on water. Voluntary agreements are the path forward." In the tradition of the failed CalFed, Delta Vision, Bay Delta Conservation Plan and California Water Fix processes, Newsom presents a "new path forward" that supposedly engages an array of stakeholders to supposedly resolve their differences, seek common ground and work for the coequal goals of water supply supply reliability and ecosystem restoration as ...
