Wonderful! I don't know why we humans needed to alter things so. If the area wasn't fit to live in in the first place, why didn't they move on... There are so many other areas we could have settled into naturally

I was not aware of this. Cool.

Thank you for posting it, Jack.

True.

Good point, havalota.

But, though we denigrated the environment in the past with these monstrosities, it is a nice thought and reality that we have appeared to have "seen the light!" Glad their tearing these deadly impediments to so many animals health and survival, finally!

I agree.

Who would've thought that the powers that be would ever do such a thing. There is hope yet. :)

Now, I am hoping that areas along the coast are dealt with to create natural areas/"sponges" to deal with hurricanes.

Maybe, someday, we will be able to visit Glen Canyon in all it's glory.

You're right, I'm sure.

Its nice they're tearing these dams down, but I think it has a lot to do with the costs of maintaining them, and some of them no longer having a purpose where industry has moved away. Lets not pretend if the powers that be thought they could keep making money they would suddenly decide habitat is more important. Hopefully technological advancements render dams obsolete in the future. It is a good step in the right direction that the communities involved are on board and aware of the benefits of removal.
