Against intense local opposition, the Obama administration wants to demolish three dams on the Klamath River in Siskiyou County, California. Low-cost clean hydroelectricity as well as water for irrigation would be lost if the dams were removed. Removal of the dams would also cause chaos for ranchers, homeowners, and small business who live and work in the downstream of the dams.

It's not about the science.
It's not about the salmon.

"Removal of the dams would also cause chaos for ranchers, homeowners, and small business who live and work in the downstream of the dams. Despite this, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has been trying to force dam removal for the supposed benefit of some salmon and steelhead spawning habitat.
Now, Prof. Paul R. Houser of George Mason University alleges that the administration’s plan is all based on junk science. In his role as science advisor to the Bureau of Reclamation, he was closely involved in the project. He has filed a formal complaint (PDF) alleging “intentional falsification” and “intentional . . . compromise of scientific and scholarly integrity.” "

Those dams were releasing too much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

What is it about? Why are they trying to destroy the food production in this extremely important area? I guess the next thing will be to make tapping the Ogallala Aquifer off-limits to kill the grain-producing states and starve not just us, but the entire world. Damn these people to hell.

If they approve this plan, all those folks who will be affected need to do a little civil disobedience. It would be pretty hard to blow up a dam with, say, a thousand protesters “occupying” it.

During WWII, the Abwehr infiltrated two teams into the US with the intent of harassing and sabotaging American infrastructure. Had they been able to successfully infiltrate 1,000 teams, I dare say they could not have created half as much destruction, havoc and chaos as the Obama administration.

What about Hoover Dam? I hear that keeps Mexicans from swimming upstream and spawning too.

this comment has absolutely nothing to do with the validity of any obama administration plan.

i note the dams. as someone who spent many formative years in oregon and washington, watching the salmon ladders (on dams), and driving to hoover dam, and grand coulee dam, and tonight googling the 150+ dams and reservoirs on the incomplete list of dams and reservoirs in california . . . does any water west of the continental divide actually flow to, and in the amount, dictated by natural geography?

i know it's not just west of the divide. the southeastern u.s. wouldn't be the same without the tva.

but nothing riparian west of the divide appears to be natural.

"Must be a conservative area."

Of course. It's farm and ranch land.

if you let me select the 1,000 protesters, i may at some point become ambivalent about the whole 'blowing up' thing

It's not about the science.
It's not about the salmon.

It's about Real Estate.

And some of 'bam's cronies are about to make a lot of money.
