Mike, the desert was turned into farmland with an intricate system of canals, which has worked for a hundred years. The problem is, the EPA keeps flushing the water out into the ocean so some species of 'bait' can survive, while farmers starve with 40% unemployment. Flush the EPA and we'll be just fine.

SURE and that "intricate system of canals, which has worked for a hundred years" has turned the Salton Sea into a waste lake so polluted that NOTHING can live in it thanks to the fertilizer and salts leached from all that irrigated "farm" land.

So wiping out bait fish and other fish runs fixes the problem ?
Or does it just create another problem ? What about all of the
other marine animals and birds that feed on those bait fish ?
What about the fishermen ?
What about the consumers of the fish they catch ?
Or didn't you take those things into consideration ?

They are NOT a NATURAL SPECIES to those rivers; They ARE invaders and take food from NATIVE Species. DO pull your head out and NOT act like an ignorant low life.
