Leaked Document Shows Biden's Plan if Snake River Dams are Breached

Government Conspiracy or Heroic Act? Leaked document shows Biden’s Plan for Energy Projects to Replace Controversial Snake River Dams!

The leaked document reveals that the U.S. government, particularly the Biden administration, is open to supporting the construction of new clean energy projects in the Pacific Northwest to replace the hydropower generated by the controversial Snake River dams. The document is a draft agreement aimed at upholding treaties with four tribes in the region that have rights to harvest fish in the river.

The Columbia River Basin, once a prolific salmon-producing river system, has seen a decline in fish stocks, with several species listed under the Endangered Species Act, a situation attributed by conservationists to the dams built in the basin. Conservation groups and tribes have been in mediation talks with the federal government to find a resolution and potentially put a lawsuit on hold.

Leaked Document: Biden’s Plan for Snake River Dam

The draft agreement outlines the government’s commitment to help plan and fund clean energy resources for the tribes in the Pacific Northwest, serving as replacement power for the lower Snake River dams. This commitment is contingent on Congress’s authorization for dam removal, which appears unlikely in the near future.

The document also proposes significant funding for analyzing the region’s energy needs, enhancing transportation infrastructure, improving the power grid’s resilience, and restoring native fish runs in the Columbia River basin. Oregon and Washington would collaborate with the four tribes and the federal government on these efforts.

However, there is opposition to the potential dam removal. Some lawmakers argue that the dams are essential for agriculture, flood control, transportation, and electricity. Utility and business groups in the region expressed concerns about the draft agreement, emphasizing the potential negative impacts on ports, farmers, and electricity prices.

The ongoing negotiations aim to develop a long-term, durable solution through court-approved confidential mediation with tribes, states, and other involved parties. While the leaked document provides insight into potential agreements, the final outcome remains uncertain, and the negotiations are ongoing.
