“There’s no place, no matter how remote we get, that hasn’t been affected by humans. You get to the North Pole, and it’s been affected by human activity.

Doremus noted the committee did not weigh in on plans to move water around the Delta. The committee wrote there are not enough details available for it to analyze…. “Diverters were hoping the report would point a finger at other stressors as more important, which it didn’t,” Doremus wrote.
