Op-Ed: Delta farmers, not WaterFix tunnels, are our best climate change defense

Excerpt: “The fourteen years of construction required to build the Delta Tunnels is estimated to emit greenhouse gases equivalent to 600,000 new cars on the road each year. Muck trucks and dewatering pumps will run 24/7, and hundreds of new power poles and other electricity infrastructure (some of which will come from gas-fired power plants) will power construction and operate the intake pumps.”
