Hooray for Senator Smith

Oregroanian August 11, 2007 page A1: An article titled —Smith backs cheney, farmers in fish-kill debate—. States Sen. Gordon Smith argues there is no evidence a massive fish kill on the Klamath River in 2002 was caused by water diversions to farmers. I am not a farmer or a politician, but I am a research scientist and have been one for 40 years. Seven years ago I finished a 3 year independent unfunded study on the science behind the salmon issue. That study look at hundreds of papers and reports preformed by environmental scientist, the conclusion from that study was that much of the science behind the salmon issue is flawed and biased. The most common mistake was to ignore alternative interpretations of the data and concentrate on only those interpretations that fit their religious views about environmental science. For example, the undeniable increase in salmon predator population is being ignored.

According to this Article, “a study cited low river flows and warmer water as a factor in the die-off. Questions, were there other factors? What were the other factors? Is there a critical river flow, which triggers these die offs? Has the river ever been below that level before? Did die offs occur every time it reached that level? With out these answers and others this study is not science but environmental propaganda.

Propaganda is bad enough, but to label it sciences is unforgivable.
