Dam the torpedoes (and not the rivers)…

This is a topic that has always been near and dear to my heart and in honor of the latest dam removal on the Elwha River up in the northwest, here are a few articles on dams.

First up, “Removing Barriers to Salmon Migration” by William Yardly over at the New York Times. What a great story!

Meanwhile, here’s an article on one many hopes is not built entitled “Plan for Hydroelectric Dam in Patagonia Outrages Chileans” by Slexei Barrionuevo also at the New York Times.

And unfortunately, here’s an article on one that while new, already has problems entitled “China Admits Problems with Three Gorges Dam” by Michael Wines again at the New York Times.

Despite that, lets end here with another nice article on the Elwha. It talks about what removing a dam can perhaps teach us all with “Dam Removal Teaches Nature Students” by Jake Richardson at Care2.

Full Steam Ahead!
