First a return to the Salmon issue:
Canadian Harvest Increases
Some Salmon Links
This is likely a reflection of where the Salmon are and this is strongly coupled to decadel climate changes in the Alaska-BC-PNW region.
This implies, that at any particular point in this region, over timescales of 50 years, salmon counts/catches will be cyclical in nature.
So, be careful what you are told without being allowed to see the larger picture:
Graph shows total salmon catch off the coast of North America (including Alaska).
Decline of In-River catches which is
frequently used as the "best" indicator for overall salmon decline
in the Columbia River System:
Implication is that increases in ocean catch are directly responsible for decreases of in-river catches also shown.
Power to replace Salmon Killers
What are the options to finding 15,000 MW of power, continuously
delivered, at 4-5 cents per KWH?:
Its capacity of 1340 MW is vital to the PNW and hence large State funds
have now been allocated for pollution reduction. Consumer ultimately
pays for this.
The Centralia Steam Plant is the
single largest producer of sulfur dioxide in the state (WA)
and is the second dirtiest producer of electricity west of
Its capacity of 1340 MW is vital to the PNW and hence large State funds have now been allocated for pollution reduction. Consumer ultimately pays for this.
