Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2009 | I just finished reporter Rob Davis‘ “Studying Desal in Mexico.” It depressed me to find out that we have created so much red tape and over-regulation on new innovations that businesses and local governments are forced to send their cash south of the border to avoid it. Think of the all the good steady jobs a desalination plant will bring to this region to out-of-work Americans, Instead they’ll go to Mexico. I doubt they will protest.

Environmentalists say that desal harms the environment. But what does it matter if it’s moved 50 miles south?
