80,000 Jobs in California Threatened Because of a Stupid Minnow?

Due to the efforts of some environmentalists,  80,000 people in California’s farming industry could be losing their jobs.  Their reason is to protect the delta smelt, a two-inch minnow on the verge of extinction. Now California’s economy is already in a mess.  This doesn’t help to better it at all.

Do the environmentalists even know what kind of impact this is going to have?  80,000 jobs could be lost, all because of a stupid minnow.  Outrageous.
