    Damn the dams. Rivers must flow unimpeded. Instead of building Dams figure out how to place non polluting generators in the moving waters. A better idea than building another structure that impedes flow. Their idea is so 1930 and my idea is today!!!

    The consequence on ecosystems due to daming will be drastic and we will affect humans in the end (ex: When the fish die because they can't swim upstream past the dam, or there's not enough water in the stream/river because of the dam.) It will affect the entire food chain. We need more aware and responsible of our impact on the planet.

    No to dams! THey destroy the waterway, the eco-system, the riparian area, and the recreational use of the river! They also cause loss of precious water due to evaporation. Learn the lessons from past dams. Pursue solar, wind and geothermal instead.
