I gotta say all this "dams are great... just look at how F'd up the Fraser is and it doesn't have any dams... windpower = bad" hype the past few weeks is suspect. The BPA, Pro-dam agenda is either having a hell of a month, or maybe they're on a PR push of some kind. Does the current govt. shift has them running scared that somebody will start seriously discussing how to save the Columbia/Snake salmon? That KATU article didn't even mention what it would take to replace one of these things and it paints dam operators as concerned salmon stewards.
