The lawsuit filed against the state of California was done for one purpose — get press coverage to make a political impact and raise funding support (click here)…..I’ve seen this too many times to be fooled into thinking it is about health.
The Natural Resources Defense Council has been using this tactic for many years….it is primary funding source…..it allows them to put pressure on government, to claim (falsely) that republicans want dirty water and dirty air. When NRDC’s other environmmental agenda items stall, they always pivot to water….who could be against safe drinking water? Nobody. So it looks like they are doing something good….when in fact, the action is simply a ploy….
