Shrinking fish and wildlife habitat

If you're concerned, watch this:. Jim Martin is fired up, rightly so, and articulates the problem clearly!
He makes the analogy of the frog in the boiling pot. Put him in a pot of boiling water and he jumps out. However, put him in cold water and slowly warm it to boiling and he will die.

We, the fish and fair water use advocates are like that frog. Our water rights are being slowly eroded by agribusiness and special interests, so we barely notice, with the end result being that fish runs have been decimated by 90% in the space of one generation with very little public outcry.

Please watch this video clip, it states the problem very well.

  1. Matt,

    I did sign it. I am cognizant also of the problems on the Klamath and Trinity Rivers as well as others. I jumped a fire out of Redding on The Hay Fork Trinity. Wonderful country.
