The facts are clear: The four lower Klamath River dams (which are currently throttling the salmon and steelhead populations on what used to be the west coast’s third-most productive salmon fishery) are not only bad for fish, they’re bad for California’s economy (if updated instead of removed, they’d run at a $20 million annual loss).
And in literally thirty seconds, you can help us take them out.

Subject: Klamath Draft EIS/EIR: I support Alternative 2
Comment: I support Alternative 2 of the Klamath Draft EIS/EIR proposal (full removal of the Iron Gate, Copco1, Copco2, and J.C. Boyle dams).
I support healthy fisheries and a healthy local economy (dam removal brings many jobs to the area) — and I support Alternative 2.
