“Alarming is an understatement. This report is a red alert,” “The massive scale at which global banks continue to pump billions of dollars into fossil fuels is flatly incompatible with a livable future. It’s an insult to logic, to science and to humanity"

The way that CA accounts for environmental water is total BS. They claim that half the total river flow in the state is environmental but in truth 95% of that e-water is simply what has escaped capture, NOT intentionally protected as environmental flow!
