Hoover Damn? Is that a typo or are you cursing random dead presidents?
Hoover Dam is not what Im talking about. I didnt say something like "all rivers should be free!!". Im talking about the rain cycle, specifically , at the moment. Not the entire hydrocycle. Rain water run off is crucial. You want rain water to be seeping into soils, running down hill, creeping into reservoirs, moistening soils, etc. Without that youre going to run into all kinds of problems.
Anyway..I wasnt trying to set up a commie hippie protest..I was just really struck at how different my first reaction was to nearly every one elses....
My Hoover Damn point was in agreement to you. There are issues downstream environmentally and personally to those downstream. Pros & cons to the damn, but I do believe manmade reservoirs affect the rain cycle.
