So now we are deluged by calls to raise Shasta Dam and build the Sites Reservoir. A previous writer explains how we simply have to build higher dams and the Sites Reservoir. An editorial reluctantly falls in line with the raise-the-dam argument. Momentum seems to be building.
This whole conversation boils down to climate deniers wanting more reservoirs and global warming adherents wanting none. So, once again, we debate while we go thirsty.
