Good Grief… Now Team Obama Wants to Blow Up 3 Dams In the Name of Junk Science

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any weirder…
The Obama Administration now wants to demolish three dams in northern California to supposedly save the salmon… But the whole reason to support the move was based on shoddy and inconclusive scientific data.

Dam fish

Greenheads say the dams threaten salmon. They want the dams gone and Obama agrees.

Now a scientist is challenging the junk science behind the decision.
The City Square reported:

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. 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.”

    The Professor is from the South. Since his words are contrarian, he will be disregarded as a yokel.

    The greenheads should demand that the Hetch Hetchy Dam (in Yosemite) be blown up too. The Hetch Hetchy gorge rivalled the Yosemite gorge in beauty at one time. And now that’s the dam that supplies the drinking water for San Francisco. That would be nice.
    Restoring beauty and eliminating a disgusting rat trap, both at the same time.

    Why not? Good for the gander; good for the goose.

    Yes and the riverside community of Dexter Oregon is an equal threat to the salmon…They must be peace gassed for the greater good.

    What a twisted mess. Nice place to visit, but I sure wouldn’t want to live there.

    Maybe the Left should just nuke the joint from outer space—that’s the only way to be sure.

    Vote Obama out in 2012.

    Might I remind people here that it was Republicans who stayed home in the last election and clinched the win for Obama.

    This is your fallout!

    The main problem with this is that California buys their electricity from other states, so if they blow the dams AND slam a NO BUY from other states, it’ll actually be great. Jerry Brown will be so happy.

    Them that wants to live 1890s-style can stay put. The rest … evacuate. ASAP. Do not leave a child behind in that state. The states that have electricity will have all the expatriated California customers in other states, so they won’t have any surplus left to sell to CA anyway.

    I see folks keep calling for impeachment. Should the House decide to file a bill of impeachment, the trial happens in the Senate. Now how far do you think that will go? Never gonna happen.

    So it may make some feel better to see an impeachment process started, it will just be an exercise in futility and will not help the GOP in the long-term. Our only course is to get this guy out of the WH come November.

    Gee, I thought the big ecological disaster in California was the delta smelt, and that is why the water supply to the San Joaquin Valley had to be stopped, putting over 50% of those farmers in the “unemployed” column. Guess not. Guess it is some salmon now.

    Those dams provide water and jobs for farmers/ranchers. But the Obama plan is to make sure that 60% of us are reliant on the government for our every need, that way we will continue to vote in those who provide us with government largess off the backs of those who continue, in spite of the government, to earn a living.

    But what happens when the money makers (who pay taxes) and the job creators decide the hell with it and take their money to some nation that is more financially friendly? We already have specialty physicians relocating to Costa Rica.

    Where do we go when the U.S. is no longer the last, best hope for freedom?
