Salton Sea

 

I watched the Salton Sea go from a fun place to boat and fish to a wasteland of dead fish and dreams. The article (“Sea change,” January 2021) is a rerun of a rerun of a rerun about broken promises from a dysfunctional state government. California is never going to spend mega-millions on the Salton Sea; there is no financial incentive to do so. Environmental monies will be spent on the Central Valley’s water issues, or other areas that produce tax income. But, really, who’s complaining? Not the millions of dead fish or other wildlife, or the poor or undocumented families that surround the sea. In the end, the Salton Sea will become a huge environmental hazard, and the poor (who have no voice) will survive the best they can.
