Going Deep on the Klamath River Crisis, the New Washington Climate Policy, and the State of Fisheries Community Culture
Diving a little deeper
On this jam-packed show, Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham are joined by Brad Warren, host of ASPN's Changing Waters podcast and executive director of the National Fisheries Conservation Center, to discuss three fascinating topics on the American Shoreline. First, they talk about the water crisis on the Klamath River, going into the history of how the river was managed over the past 100 years, and how tribes, fishermen, and farmers are all "in the same boat" as climate change impacts the river's flow. Then, they head north to Washington to discuss the new cap-and-trade climate legislation just signed into law. Might this be a prototype to be adopted nationally? And finally, they discuss the state of fishery community culture at this moment on the American shoreline, and consider how communities that rely on fisheries will adapt to changing seas. Its a great show, only on ASPN!
