image Delta advocates: Shasta Dam raise is a 'massive waste of taxpayer money' 120_800_img_3708.jpg original image ( 800x533) - by Dan Bacher
“Enlarging Shasta Dam is the very definition of a boondoggle,” said Barrigan-Parrilla. “A lot of money up front, a lot of environmental damage along the way, but only a little bit of water down the road for all that effort and heartache. Fortunately, there are better solutions.” Photo: The Winnemem Wintu Tribe and their allies protest the plans to raise Shasta Dam and build the peripheral tunnels at the Shasta Dam overlook in September 2013.

“Any raising of the dam, even a few feet, will flood some of our last remaining sacred sites on the McCloud River – sites we still use today,” said Caleen Sisk, Winnemem Chief and Spiritual Leader. "We can't be Winnemem any place else but the McCloud River. The dam raise is a form of cultural genocide."

While climate science has been a prominent concern of many university based researchers, these same venerable education institutions have failed to walk the talk in regard to applying climate change science to climate risk investment of their financial assets.

WASHINGTON— The annual overwintering count of monarch butterflies released today shows a modest population rebound from last year’s lowest-ever count of 34 million butterflies, but is still the second lowest population count since surveys began in 1993. The population was expected to be up this winter due to favorable spring and summer weather conditions in the monarch’s U.S. and Canadian breeding areas, as butterfly populations fluctuate widely with changing weather. But the 56.5 milli...

The decision by the Obama administration to more than double the permissable "take" limit of Delta smelt at the state and federal water export facilities is simply mind-boggling, especially just two days after a California Department of Fish and Wildlife fall survey revealed that the Delta smelt has declined to a record low population level. “As goes the Delta smelt, so goes the Delta,” said Bill Jennings, the executive director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance. “T...

TUCSON, Ariz.— The U.S. Congress has taken up consideration of HR 399, which would dramatically ramp up ongoing militarization in the southern border region in the name of “border security,” including in some of the most sensitive and important wildlife habitat in the nation. The bill would also permanently exempt border security activities from more than a dozen environmental laws within 100 miles of the Mexican border, including the Endangered Species Act, Wilderness Act, and National...
