Fish or Fry

OregroanianSep 7, 2007 page 1D: An article titled —Feds reel out third salmon Plan—. This article states, “The Judge, U.S. District Judge James Redden, threw out the last two federal blueprints for operating the dams because they did not fulfill federal obligations to protect salmon.” With the earth apparently facing global warming Armageddon from pollution caused by energy generation, does it make any sense to shut down the most efficient and clean source of power in the world because we need to protect a single species? If this world goes ballistic because of global warming the salmon will go too.

Is this a case of a stupid judge, a stupid law or both? For Gods sake, what is the environmental law going to protect if the carbon dioxide is not curbed?

The article continues by dragging out the Indians and fish advocates. “But tribes and fish advocates, including some who originally took the government to court said the government still is not offering much new help for salmon and still overlooks the serious toll dams take on the fish.” Advocates are a group of people who make their living on controversy and believe that the only solution to any problem is their solution. There is considerable data that shows that dams also save fish. What should be looked at is the net impact that dams have on fish. But the advocates and Indians ignore that data because of their selfish interests.

Do we continue to listen to the Indians and the fish advocates? It is time to speak out against this closed minded approach to solving problems. It our choice. So do we fish or fry?
