It’s lost in court, at the ballot, and in Washington, but the notion of ripping out the heart of San Francisco’s Hetch Hetchy water and power system is rising from its policy coffin.
That’s because people around the world think what the city has done to Yosemite’s twin sister is just wrong, wrong, wrong.
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, recently met with Restore Hetch Hetchy, a group that seeks to level the century-old O’Shaughnessy Dam and drain the Hetch Hetchy reservoir in Yosemite National Park.
Zinke tweeted his delight at meeting with the tiny organization, saying he’s all about “different opportunities and options to restore public access and recreation in the valley.”
It’s great news. and it has the elites in the Bay Area in a panic. Their days of exploiting the environment and the people of California and the nation, may be coming to an end.
The Bay Area elites have no problem exploiting the environment in the pristine valley for cheap water and electricity, just as they have no problem lecturing you on the environment. The sacrifice is yours, not theirs.
