April 29, 2000

McClure reports that the Army Corps of Engineers has issued a study stating that dams may be good for salmon by keeping the temperature of the water down.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) responsible for protecting the Snake River salmon under the Endangered Species Act "attacked the Corps' scientific conclusions as false and misleading." according to McClure.
