A deal that puts privileged federal irrigators ahead of fish, that ignores the best science, and that favors some tribal, irrigation and environmental interests over other tribal, irrigation and environmental interests will not restore the Klamath River or recover Klamath Salmon.
A divided Congress is what PacifiCorp wants. If that happens they continue to operate salmon-killing dams at a profit, i.e. status quo, without having to make the changes already ordered in the FERC process.
The quickest path to dam removal is to get back to the normal FERC process as soon as possible.
Now is when we see who really cares about Klamath Salmon and who cares more about their narrow self-interest. If those so-called salmon champions like PCFFA and the Yurok Tribe refuse to go back to FERC and insist on waiting for the next election in hope of getting their self-serving deals through Congress, they will be complicit in killing Klamath Salmon.
