Indeed, Barbara Boxer was right in line with Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi when they passed legislation to protect the so-called, endangered Delta Smelt, and then directed water from the Sacramento Delta to the San Joaquin Valley, in middle CA, home to its agricultural bread basket.
Never mind that farmers lost their farms, millions of dollars were lost in the process, and Californians were forced to buy their fruits and vegetables from Mexico.
When property goes into foreclosure is it within the realm of possibility that those who created the mess benefited in buying farmland through blind trusts?
Heads up Senator Boxer, glad you are retiring, trust that Republicans want clean water and air.
Your admonitions about resisting a President Donald Trump will fail as badly as you failed to people of CA with your socialist/progressive views.
Trump will put new people in charge who will not be “Climate Change Zealots,” and if he is smart he would outsource the entire agency to the private sector.

Here’s his platform on the environment. (Source)

Sen. Barbara Boxer, a top supporter of the Environmental Protection Agency on Capitol Hill, urged agency employees on Thursday to resist giving up their work on climate change as she retires and the Trump administration comes into power.
The California senator, who has been the top Democrat on the environment committee for decades, said the public has EPA’s corner as it faces an incoming administration bent on stripping its powers to reduce the threat of global warming.
“And remember this — the public stands with you!” she said in a letter to EPA chief Gina McCarthy and all employees within the agency.
“In poll after poll, American voters are clear that they favor EPA’s efforts to address climate change, clean up the air, and protect the waterways that provide drinking water to 117 million Americans.”

She said that EPA has had strong bipartisan support for the environmental laws it enforces, many of which were signed into law under Republican administrations.

“One of the reasons that these laws have been so successful is because they were based on the science,” she said. “You must continue your important work that is rooted in science and never be afraid to do so.”
Boxer, who retires from the Senate at the end of the year, sent the letter as a departing thank you for EPA’s work and dedication to the environment. Boxer has been the agency’s strongest advocate in the Senate under the Obama and former George W. Bush administrations.
“It has been a privilege to work with you over the years,” Boxer said. “I am so proud of what EPA has accomplished — protecting the environment, our families and communities across the nation.”
Boxer said that although she is retiring from the Senate, “I plan to keep fighting these fights — I will just be doing it from California.”
Boxer blasted Trump’s nomination of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt on Thursday ahead of sending the letter to EPA. “President-elect Trump has selected someone who, as Oklahoma Attorney General, has fought on the side of big polluters and special interests over the health of the people of his state.
“He has sued the EPA to overturn common-sense public health protections, and he stands with climate deniers,” she said. “There can be no doubt that Mr. Pruitt is the wrong choice because he will continue to try to roll back our landmark environmental laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, and that is disastrous for the American people.”
