5/27/13 – Renegotiating the Columbia River Treaty (rebroadcast)

The Columbia River treaty created a massive system of dams for flood control and electricity for the Northwest. Critics say the pact has been environmentally destructive, while proponents tout it as a model of international cooperation. On this episode, I rebroadcast a conversation with Jim Yost of the Northwest Power and Conservation Council and John Tracy, director of the Idaho Water Resources Research Institute talk about about efforts to renegotiate the 1961 international agreement between Canada and the US.
