"BREAKING NEWS! Endangered salmon in the Pacific Northwest got a huge boost today when a court found the government’s recovery plan illegal for not doing enough to protect the critically endangered species. http://ejus.tc/1X9f9NH
Once heralded as one of the greatest wild salmon runs in the world, the Columbia/Snake river system now holds the title as the most heavily dammed on earth. Since the dams were completed, these salmon populations have plummeted by more than 90%. Today’s victory sets the stage for these dams to finally come down, allowing the species to flourish once again."
Laurie was at Jim Waddell's presentation tonight at the Seattle Town Hall. Jim said that President Obama needs to make a decision on breaching the dams on the Snake NOW. The reason for the urgency is that Obama must make that proclamation before he leaves office. We don't want to start the work over again with a new administration. He asked people to call and to let others know to call.
Please call the following 4 people Thursday May 5th and Friday, May 6th.
When you call say: "I'd like to register a comment. Please support the breaching of the four lower Snake River dams by executive action now".
