Portland, Ore. - Calling it an "insurance policy" for Pacific Northwest salmon, the Obama administration on Tuesday offered up a tougher conservation plan for the fish that includes climate-change monitoring and the "last-resort" possibility of removing dams.

So, those dams generate a significant portion of the areas electricity. Clean, non-polluting, baseline power. Are we going to replace these with coal plants? Effin tool.

Just follow the money on all these so called good for the environment projects that include the destruction of existing infrastructure such as dams that generate electricity.

Obamas clean coal industry would profit handsomely if the hydro power went away. Big oil, natural gas you name it, would love to see that power source go away.
