I've never understood these proposals for removing the Hetchy Ketchy Dam. The Hetchy Ketchy Dam, for those of you in Arcata, is the main source of drinking water for San Francisco. How anyone in this state thinks it would make sense to remove the main source of drinking water for one of the state's most populous cities when most of the state is already parched is beyond me.
At least some are speaking out against the proposal and, from the comments made on the commentary, looks like most readers agree.
Hey, I've love my green Winco reusable shopping bag and the wife also has a number of them. But now, if she forgets to take them to the store with her, I realize it's no big deal since our bags end up being recycled and people get paid to manufacture plastic shopping bags.
Of course, the plastic bans aren't good enough for some. Now a number of communities are thinking of banning paper shopping bags, or requiring stores charge for using them. Paper bags- a renewable resource- that can be recycled or even composted. Nope. Can't use them. We'd have to cut down some trees to do that.
If they end up banning both that will be two more things we can't buy, use or MANUFACTURE in California. The last thing these enviros care about is jobs and the people that need them.
