Of course, none considering removing the dams have factored into their proposal the 'goo' (saturated fine sediment) that would be left behind, nor the adverse effect on riparian fauna as it sloughed and produced high turbidity events in the watershed.

Either that (or more obviously), the fish are merely an excuse to do the greatest amount of economic damage possible.

Actually, the fish will go crazy when all the silt which has been deposited in the reservoirs is released...for fish, that will be the equivalent of breathing thick smoke, and just as healthy.

Maybe Obama really wants to jack up food prices some more by making another area of land unfit to grow crops.

It’s pretty simple -

if it makes the lives of Americans better, he’s against it.
if it makes their lives more peasant-like, he’s for it.

Those dams were releasing too much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
I suggest that you retract the above statement ....

I suggest that the statement is totally inaccurate. Those dams do NOT release CO^2*. The real problem is that those old generators arc & spark, creating OZONE a pollutant 500 times worse than CO^2, because the dam operators refuse to retrofit the generators & water turbines with EPA approved emission control systems. /S

Better to have a thousand armed “Minutemen” defending it.

Why the hell can we not vote for Tom McClintock in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary elections?

Sure, more effective in one aspect at least, but then the media would just spin it that we were kooks preaching violence, and the public would turn a blind eye to any action the government took against us, just like they did to the Branch-Davidians. It’s much easier to get a PR victory if you put yourself in a position where the government has to either resort to violence without any possible justification, or fold. The leftists learned that lesson from Gandhi very well, and I know it goes against the grain to suggest we can learn anything from their “hippie” tactics, but I say, if a weapon is effective, we shouldn’t cede it to the enemy but rather keep it our quiver as well.

Really? Don’t think so...I think that it would collapse more quickly, if anything...

Not if they "Occupy" the ridge lines near the dam. Since that's wild country, they'll need their "hunting rifles" to defend themselves against the bears and cougars. You know the ones with the ten power scopes and calibers like .308, .338 and .50. :)

The Dam Whistleblower

Our guest - Paul R. Houser

Paul Houser, an associate professor of hydrology at George Mason University, told the Record Searchlight newspaper he was fired by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation after questioning the positive spin U.S. Department of Interior officials were putting on scientific studies that supported dam removal.

Klamath KBRA scientist whistleblower letter to Siskiyou County Supervisors

Dear Supervisors Cook, Valenzuela, Kobseff, Bennett, and Armstrong,

I know you are concerned about the Klamath Secretarial determination process, so I wanted to bring to your attention to an allegation of scientific and scholarly misconduct and reprisal for a whistleblower disclosure I made concerning the biased summarization of key scientific conclusions for the Klamath River dam removal Secretarial determination process.

An example of this intentional biased (falsification) reporting of scientific results by the Department of the Interior is contained in the September 21, 2011 “Summary of Key Conclusions: Draft EIS/EIR and Related Scientific/Technical Reports”. There are many other examples of integrity issues outlined in the attached allegation.

I made this disclosure when I held the position of Science Advisor for the Bureau of Reclamation. Unfortunately, as a result of the disclosure, I have faced systematic reprisal and termination of my employment. I have opened a case with the Department of the Interior, Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and I plan to file the attached scientific integrity allegation. I also plan to appeal the termination of my position to the Office of Special Council (OSC) and the Merit Systems Protection Board

I hope that this situation is of interest to you, and if so, I am hoping that you would be willing to advocate on my behalf and/or on behalf of good science-informed decision making in the Klamath Basin. I have been treated wrongly by the Department of the Interior, but m decisions about the Klamath dam removal process are being compromised by scientific integrity issues.

Best Regards, Paul

Dr. Paul R. Houser, Associate Professor | George Mason University

Thank you for the info but I'm almost as frustrated and resentful and filled with contempt for the EnvironMental process, even the GovernMental process that is so desperately stacked toward the totalitarian control by a bunch of fraudulent litigating self-annointing, self-appointing activists that I can hardly see straight anymore.

I took a peek at both part one and part 2 and I'll read 'em just before the program starts at 8:AM in the morning... Which is really going to be 7:AM with GovernMentally imposed Pacific Daylight Savings Time... Pfffffffft!!!
