(Politico) – Carly Fiorina is blaming liberal environmentalists for what she calls a “man-made” drought in California.

“It is a man-made disaster,” Fiorina, who is “seriously considering” a run for president in 2016, told the Blaze Radio on Monday.

“California is a classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology. It’s a tragedy.”

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO, a Republican, ran for a California Senate seat in 2010 against incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer and lost. Now, the state is facing a devastating drought in its fourth year. On Wednesday, California Gov. Jerry Brown issued an executive order to restrict water usage. The directive orders California’s State Water Resources Control Board — which supplies 90 percent of Californians with water, according to The New York Times — to reduce its supply by 25 percent.

Republicans have blamed California’s protections for endangered species for the drought. In December, the House passed a bill to pump water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to Southern California, a move that environmentalists said would harm endangered fish species. The Obama administration threatened to veto the bill.

“That’s the tragedy of California, because of liberal environmentalists’ insistence — despite the fact that California has suffered from droughts for millennia, liberal environmentalists have prevented the building of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades during a period in which California’s population has doubled,” Fiorina said.

    Let's be honest, the drought IS man-made. Just not in the way she's proposing. It's caused by overuse, it's inevitable that a drought would come. Now we have one, and we've used up all the water.

    Astounding how dumb people can be.

    Oil and fracking are not part of the water restrictions, Nestle is bottling our groundwater and selling it back to the communities suffering from the drought, some stupid high percentage of agriculture here still uses flood irrigation and there's expansion in planting of water intensive crops, also not subject to water restrictions for years to come. yet... not shipping water from an ecosystem that supports endangered species instead of asking those that use it irresponsibly to stop it makes it not rain... Right. yes. perfectly logical.
