Those dams were releasing too much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
I suggest that you retract the above statement .... the idiot lackeys of the Food Stamp President’s administration might actually try to sell the idea to the less intelligent serving in government, recently public education high school and college graduates, and MSM news readers!
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
