Environmentalists Want to Eliminate Hydropower

7/22/23 Moscow Daily News:
"Conservation groups intend to ask judge to breach Snake River dams
Coalition says breaching is needed to prevent extinction of sockeye salmon that spawn in Idaho, files notice of its intention to sue Army Corps of Engineers"
"Hydroelectric turbines at the dams produce about 1,000 average megawatts of electricity."
Hydroelectricity is the most pollution free electricity source once you get past construction and even photovoltaic is likely no better

  1. Wind power will become disfavored, too, once more wind turbines are built and the Environmentalists realize how noisy they are, and how it's bad for the environment due to dead birds who can't see the blades in time.
