Dam removal flick at the Arcata Theater Lounge

From the Environmental Protection Information Center:

At 7 PM on Tuesday, October 11, at the Arcata Theater Lounge (136 G Street, Arcata), EPIC will be proud to host a screening of the documentary film Patagonia Rising. This film describes the efforts of communities in Chile to protect the wildest rivers in the Patagonia region from mega-hydroelectric development, and their realistic vision for sustainable alternatives.

This compelling film is particularly relevant in Northwest California due to the public comment period that is currently underway on the Draft Plan for the removal of 4 obsolete and destructive dams on the Klamath River. As communities in California work to fulfill the promise of an agreement to decommission dams and begin to restore the long-abused Klamath, people all around the world are struggling to defend their still free-flowing rivers from large dams. This global dynamic is essential to understanding this historic moment for the rivers in our region.

    Now if we could just design a skimmer ship and take a few empty oil tankers out to the gigantic floating plastic island out in the pacific ocean, we would have a ready source of raw material for the True Plastic Recycler. Like everything else, the boomers will leave it for the next generation to figure out and pay for.
