    • Kill the Canal


      from Bruce Tokars / Added

      Kill the Canal (3:11) The march to build a system to move massive amounts of water around the Delta continues. The goal is to build a peripheral canal (also referred to as a tunnel or conveyance) so that fresh water will be available to meet the seemingly never-ending needs of big agriculture and Southern California real estate interests. Governor Jerry Brown, in his recent State of the State address, seemed to go out of his way to justify building a peripheral canal. He emphasized his commitment to fast-tracking its construction. The Governor even personalized the pitch by saying that “this is something my father worked on and then I worked on—decades ago. We know more now and are committed to the dual goals of restoring the Delta ecosystem and ensuring a reliable water supply.” Dan Bacher, who has been reporting on water, fish, and ecosystem issues for years, pointed out in a recent story that “ironically, the theme of (Brown’s) speech was California on the Mend.” Delta advocates oppose the construction of the peripheral canal because it will, among other things, lead to the extinction of Central Valley fish species including Sacramento River Chinook salmon and many others. Salmon Water Now agrees with Bacher that the canal won't “mend” imperiled Central Valley salmon and Delta fish populations. It is very hard to see how it would not exacerbate the ecosystem collapse caused by record water exports from the Delta in recent years. But those pushing for ever more amounts of water want what they want. Kill the Canal, a new video from Salmon Water Now, is a three-minute look at the canal and what we believe are very good reasons to stop it from being built. The canal would be a massively expensive construction project at a time when California is suffering from huge budget problems. It does not seem that the current plans will help the Delta or help the people and communities who depend on having healthy runs of wild salmon. But it will help the Westlands Water District, billionaire “farmer” Stewart Resnick, and plenty of real estate developers. If they get their way, they’ll be very happy. A little sarcasm never hurts. Salmon Water Now is one of many voices that would like to put the brakes on the march to build a peripheral canal. We’d like to see a spirited discussion about this issue and there is plenty to talk about. We encourage the sharing of our Kill the Canal video as a way to stimulate a lively debate.

      • Truth and Justice: Stop the Delta Tunnels!


        from Bruce Tokars / Added

        Look up in the sky! Faster than a speeding bullet,. More powerful than a locomotive,.. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound... Yes, it's that guy. And now he's got the Delta Tunnels in his view. The State and Federal government are releasing the details of the Bay Delta Conservation Program (BDCP) also known as the Delta Tunnels. We'll leave it to others to go through the specifics of this first draft of environmental impacts of the proposal. We've elected, instead, to bring viewers a fresh look at the implications of the project, including who gets the benefits and who gets the shaft. Truth and Justice is the line that is used to describe Superman. So we've borrowed from the Superman legacy some imagery that slipped into the public domain - Superman cartoons done during the time of World War II. It's another way to tell the current story of the Delta Tunnels boondoggle. Anyone concerned about the tunnel projects real environmental and fiscal impacts on California needs to get involved. It's the only way to help stop the march to build the tunnels. So be a "superman' (or woman) and help others understand the truth about the project. Knowledge, together with truth and justice will help shut down the tunnel idea. Watch Truth and Justice.

          Alabama Craft: Tradition and Innovation is an original APT documentary in two parts that samples the works, visions and philosophies of seven Alabama artists. Produced in partnership with the Alabama State Council on the Arts (ASCA), Alabama Craft focuses on the work of potters Jerry Brown and Charles Smith, quilters Mozell Benson and Bettye Kimbrell, glassblower Cal Breed, musical instrument maker Gene Ivey, and blacksmith John Phillips. The camera follows the artists, exploring the creative process from conception through creation. How does the indigenous social, cultural, historical and physical environment of Alabama infuse the art of these masters? “Their work draws on a sense of place and story,” comments producer Andrew Grace, “and their arts demonstrate the commonality of the shared Alabama experience.”
