That are responsible for drying up this once fertile area but the first.
We're joined by two people who have gone to great lengths to shine the light on this crisis.
Comedian activist Paul Rodriguez radio talk shows okay.
-- miles back they can't get it helps -- -- -- that.
Well first of all you Paul you've been in this now for this fight this battle it has been going on for far too long there has been a natural drought.
But they have all this water that they're sending to the ocean rather to the -- because of the little delta -- can you explain that what's going on.
I'm glad you're here because I had nothing from a mile away from my failure doesn't come help -- -- with a -- -- water come mediation that might actually -- you feel -- that I.
Drivers should be fertile right now.
You know I know in my heart that.
That's what the American -- -- realize you know I -- why I had no part of America who are less than we need help local home wire me simply because whenever our.
Any enemies get into trouble -- North Korea right now we're to have an earthquake I want the first playing well beyond that -- with me there they'll announce that.
-- -- -- What -- we do for ourselves about what had.
You are the farmers that have sustained the entire country for per decade we have generations of farmers hearing -- And then losing their farms we have hundreds and hundreds of thousands of acres.
We literally have -- met people earlier that now are on food lines because their farms have been shut down.
That's the next to me is the part of it is the most immoral thing about all of this we really are and bread -- of the world we've seen the world.
Our -- goes to Third World countries and helps people.
It -- their main staples we see everybody here and here we have our own scanning and and food lions -- and the food is coming in crates it's a product of China.
In the government for a rebate when asking why haven't we don't get.
-- -- We want to farm.
Decided to call yeah.
And by the way we want to hold it against -- you you supported Barack Obama brings up.
I would I would like to put aside politics because of Barack Obama.
Allows tells his environmental extremist.
In his administration.
To stand down and turn the water on.
You'll get the first credit from me okay so like why have you reached out to the president and what -- you.
I shot right behind you we have another that we wrote to the current administration.
-- we realize you came in at a time when you don't have an all your wins.
He can't we'll give you the benefit -- doubt I still have respect for the office of the president.
But behind -- signed by every single mayor of every community here in the San Joaquin Valley I think that should get.
-- -- -- -- -- Tangible -- just had a point of this guy that is some steam that is such an environmental extremists.
That he wants to ban hunting and he says that animals.
This is why I know that the people who who who are comfortable margin usually the littlest -- You don't know -- making the stuff I'm so imagine here because -- the very president Nelson the fines he.
-- -- and had been that he's the undersecretary.
Of -- of the interior interior Salazar came out right.
They have nothing nothing haven't looked at.
What do you got.
-- little advantage on -- President Obama never visited here when he was running and he never visited here since he knows what's happening here -- send his people out.
He made a lot of promises I think.
-- -- the big issue here on -- -- -- unfair but one of them but this really comes out when I don't know we've explained this well enough but in the course of this program was gonna get into the specifics of this.
Literally the environmentalists didn't the Interior Department they've all made a decision.
That that for example the water can be pumped here but we're here to defend this little two wins delta smelt fish.
They have decided that the farmers comes second and the -- -- -- -- tires.

How much time but I still hold hope that not only he would he would look at document you know I mean.
But but that doesn't have only a mother -- but the screen that now.
-- but we've got literally we've gotten.

The only way they can make money yeah.
They would not water -- to my house.
Both of us what you value will bottom dollar that the most fertile that this is -- of the -- -- and isn't the most fertile well I think -- about this guy you would see.
