October 28, 2011 — The White Salmon River in Washington state is flowing again as the nearly 100-year-old Condit Dam was disabled with explosives Wednesday. The reservoir draining took about 2 hours. Further demolition is scheduled in 2012. The event is a significant milestone for river restoration and dam removal nationwide.

    Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Why was the dam built? What benefits was it supposed to provide, and at what cost? What were the real benefits and costs, and to whom?

    These days we require massive environmental impact reviews before building anything useful. It seems, though, that we are more willing to tear things down. That can’t bode well for a society or civilization.

    I agree Owl. Is it really a good thing? North Jersey suffered some of the worse flooding in history after Irene…..they flooded in places that NEVER flooded before. The Army Corp of Engineers was working in north Jersey……”to fix” things previous to the storm. Really? Fix things? How’s that working for them? I believe it’s a conspiracy to destroy, condemn and confiscate private property…’s all part of the “Agenda”.

    CJfreedom is correct.
    Agenda 21 “Wildlands Project” is a plan to re-wild over 95% of the United States, control all land and food, and force remaining population into high-density mixed-use urban centers.

    It is part of UN Agenda 21, signed by George HW Bush, rejected by Congress, but enforced administratively via EO from Clinton (who made Gore his Biodiversity head) to Bush II to Obamao.

    See this post at Big Government, and be sure to look at Dr. Michael Coffman’s “Wildlands Map”.
