Community petition to PacifiCorp and California receives 2000 signatures in first week Eureka, California-Recently Warren Buffett's PacifiCorp quietly submitted a plan to apply toxins for the second year to Klamath River reservoirs as an algae killing experiment. River users, including fisherman and Native American Tribes, unanimously oppose this action citing last year’s studies that show killing the algae actually releases the algae toxin, microcystin at a time of year when people are in the Klamath River. The opposition has been so strong that a petition opposing the experiments has gained up to 500 signatures a day.
