A coalition of grassroots activists, Indigenous leaders, fishermen and other organizations is pushing to remove the largest dam in the world. The coalition is challenging Warren Buffet, the owner of Pacific Power, to keep his promise to remove dams on the Klamath River. The dams contribute to toxic algae that causes the collapse of biodiversity, particularly salmon runs that supply sport, commercial and tribal fishing along the California coast.
For more, Sikowis speaks to Thomas Joseph, a member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe and co-director of California Kitchen, an independent grassroots climate justice project, to talk about the campaign to remove destructive dams from the Klamath River.
