Green Insanity Is Flooding Towns and Destroying Lives

American Thinker: Having written extensively in these pages (read herehere, and here) on the catastrophic flooding of the Missouri River basin in 2011, I believe that the occasion of this present flood disaster plaguing Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota has given rise to many questions.  Foremost, I have been asked if there is an environmentalist element, as there was in 2011, when the Corps of Engineers intentionally permitted the flooding of eight states in order to further their highest priority (as per the Master Water Control Manual) of “habitat restoration for riverine wildlife” at the expense of the original top priority, flood control, and the preservation of human life and property.

Green “deism” does play a role in our current woes, but not as directly as it did in 2011.  More of a “Best supporting Actor,” in this case.

The Master Water Control Manual is the bible of the Missouri River basin dam system.  It defines the duties and protocols to be followed in order to best meet the various needs represented in the list of priorities.

From the completion of the dam construction (in 1967) until 2004, the Master Water Control Manual listed the priority functions in order of importance, with flood control being number one.

1) flood control
2) irrigation and upstream beneficial uses
3) downstream water supply
4) navigation and power
5) recreation and wildlife

In 2004, under pressure from environmentalist organizations who had been lobbying hard for the previous decade, Congress approved a revision to the manual that no longer specifically prioritized the uses of the system, leaving the order of the functions to the discretion of the Corps of Engineers.

The previous list was then essentially upended, with wildlife (habitat restoration, preservation, and imitation of natural cycles) becoming the top priority, and all the others swapping places back and forth depending on the year.

Flood control slipped lower and lower on the ladder as the Green movement grew in strength, demanding a return to the “wild rivers” that, in their sainted opinions, man should have never attempted to control.  more here

  1. NOAA says the flooding will continue through May.

    Gosh, who knew God was living at NOAA Headquarters?

  2. Democrats aren’t just wrecking the country socially and economically. They’re wrecking it physically too.

  3. Not to overlook the reality that weather elements can ultimately create flooding among other destructive conditions. It isn’t just Democrats wrecking the country, it’s global geo-engineering specialists under the covert ops of military scientific terrorism. It should be identified as Weather of Mass Destruction warfare. The USA has been designated to be taken down from being a strong, sovereign nation by Globalists like George Soros and his satanic ilk. Every facet of this country is being attacked successfully as The Mule has said. Not only God can control the forces of nature, but He can allow judgment to be delivered that way to a nation that has been overcome with evil, such as our country has. Most of us don’t like it, but we haven’t been able to stop the rampant evil being allowed and participated in by our own government and even religious leaders.

  4. Com’on, tRuth, time for your meds and electro-shock. That’s a good “it”. Com’on now.

  5. So it turns out that Abraham was able to save Lot’s family through his negotiation with God when Sodom was destroyed, right? One small family. We are not yet there. A wise fellow once reminded me that as long as there is outcry, there is hope. Until there remains only one righteous family in the entire city, we still have hope of not incurring the wrath of God……maybe!

  6. More flooding; more damage; more “begging for dollars”; more FedGov intervention.

    Develop a crisis.
    Mitigate that crisis.
    Claim power and authority for “saving” people from that crisis.

    Same old shit – “Oceania, Eurasia [or] Eastasia?”
    “The Jews; the Slavs?”
    “Capitalists; Wreckers?”
    “Tornadoes; Hurricanes?”

    We fall for it every time.

  7. Pentagon or CIA trolls at work aren’t able to refute any posting with facts of their own. These trolls are recognizable by their low I.Q.s and feeble attempts to be insulting and vulgar. When a topic is too true, their goal is to shut it down. Military geo-terrorism is very destructive warfare that can appear to be natural when it isn’t. Like what happened in Japan and now is being done in Venezuela, and is being done to the USA,too. Not exactly being brave protecting our own country are they?
