Re Voluntary water conservation not effective, data show (, July 28): So, let me get this right: despite statewide messages clearly illuminating the danger California is in, water usage increased in Southern California. Yet, Gov. Brown's pet project of building tunnels through sensitive ecosystems to divert millions of gallons of water to water-addicted Southern California is still moving forward.

Is there anything that can rein in our stubborn leader? How much more data does he need? The solution is not to send them more water, as they have shown they are irresponsible stewards of our precious commodity. Southern California residents need conservation education. Stop the Delta tunnels.
