Joe Biden has cut a secret agreement to tear down three hydroelectric dams in the Pacific Northwest to protect salmon.
From El Zoro:
A group of House lawmakers representing the Pacific Northwest made public a court-approved confidential mediation between the Biden administration and environmental groups pushing to remove four hydroelectric dams in Washington to protect salmon.
The document, which until now hasn’t been made public, was drafted on Nov. 2 as part of an agreement in which activist groups agreed to pause their litigation against the federal government. The groups have argued in favor of breaching the four federally-managed dams amid declining salmon populations in the lower Snake River, which winds through Idaho and Washington before feeding into the Columbia River and then into the Pacific Ocean.
"It is imperative that our constituents, whose livelihoods depend on the Columbia River System, have a comprehensive understanding of this document’s contents so they can anticipate and prepare for the wide-ranging impacts that will inevitably be felt across the region should the commitments detailed in this document be realized,” the lawmakers, led by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., wrote to President Biden on Wednesday.
"Additionally, as Members of Congress representing the Pacific Northwest and tasked with oversight of the Executive Branch, it is our duty to ensure any actions committed to as part of this agreement do not circumvent by any means the congressional authorization that would be required to execute certain proposed provisions, such as the removal of certain dams,” they wrote.
Te report explains that the dams were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers… and "still provide about 8% of the state’s electricity, enough to serve millions of residents, and have a large total capacity of 3,000 megawatts.”
All part of the Administration's deindustrialization of America.
Dams are the most renewable of all energy sources. As long as rain falls from the sky the dam will work. And that without carbon dioxide emissions, or sulfur compounds, or anything else.
That the Junta did it in secret is illustrative of the fact they know the public will rebel if it becomes widespread knowledge.
Joe Biden is utterly determined to make America into the Third World.
