Liberals blame Global Warming for everything from the California drought to stubbing your toe on the nightstand in the morning, but in fact, there’s good reason to believe that the drought would have been much easier on Californians if it wasn’t for environmentalists.
The media will go nuts over this, but she’s not the only voice blaming liberalism, and she has a lot of reason for saying so:
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said Monday that California’s water crisis is the result of “liberal environmentalists” who are “willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology.”
“With different policies over the last 20 years, all of this could be avoided,” Fiorina said on Glenn Beck’s radio program. “Despite the fact that California has suffered from droughts for millennia, liberal environmentalists have prevented the building of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades during a period in which California’s population has doubled.”
Fiorina said that as a result, 70 percent of California’s rainfall “washes out to sea” year after year.
“How is it possible that we don’t hear that story on the news at all?” Beck demanded.
It’s funny, if you read Politico’s report on her comments, they cut out the reasons she gives, so that it just looks like an opinion without facts. But I’m sure that’s an accident…
