San Francisco, it could be said, is the nation’s capital of trendy environmentalism — as long as it affects someone else.
This became very evident a few years ago when it was suggested — in a series of articles in the Sacramento Bee, among other places — that San Francisco should give up its exclusive water supply from the Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park, allowing it to be restored to its natural state.
The good burghers of San Francisco, led by U.S. Sen. (and former Mayor) Dianne Feinstein, arose in righteous anger to denounce draining the Hetch Hetchy reservoir as far-fetched and intrusive.
