Klamath Dam Whistle Blower – Dr. Paul Houser is HERE!!!!!


Department of the Interior Whistleblower Dr. Paul Houser

Dr. Houser, Science Advisor and Scientific Integrity Officer of the Bureau of Reclamation in Washington D.C. accuses Secretary Salazar of the Department of the Interior of “intentional falsification”, “bias”, “(Interior’s) predetermined intention ( to destroy four hydroelectric dams on the Klamath River in Northern, Ca.)” “I don’t see that scientific justification (to take out Klamath Dams)” “In this case the science is not as supportive of dam removal as aggressively as the Department wants it to, so they have spun it…” As a result of this position he has been fired by the Bureau of Reclamation.

The Department of the Interior’s aggressive stance to remove these dams has stirred a giant in the California-Oregon bi-state Alliance to oppose the removal of these dams. The Cal-Ore Alliance will be hosting Dr. Houser, Oregon Senator Whitsett and Constitutional Sheriffs at public informational hearings at the Klamath Falls Fairgrounds and the Siskiyou County Fairgrounds in Yreka, California.
