Michael A. Clarke: Comprehensive water policies needed

It was fun reading Rep. Tom McClintock’s recent editorial, especially his description of California’s future as a green grass, swimming pool, air-conditioned and brightly lit paradise (“Environmentalists block path to future,” Opinions, March 12). He pointed out that this paradise will be possible once we get those pesky environmentalists out of the way and get rid of all those laws that protect silly fish and many other critters that share our planet. He expressed concern about California water “lost to the Pacific Ocean” – although a lot of bay and ocean plants and animals need water too.
