skypieper: Time to Un-Dam the Klamath!

lee8830: nice video , but mel is not a red indian lol

chateau 65: Such an interesting documentary but the background music is too loud and intrusive. Please don't bother with it next time as it spoils the viewing.

Nicolas Côté: Clean Coal is way better for the planet than disturbing the eco-system with a hydro dam!

Ted Baird: Dams are a huge part of our fisheries collapsing. Where do our priorities lie.....these rivers are the womb to our lakes and oceans. Blocking them is like tieing the tubes of mother earth. We need to strive for better methods it is possible and we can do it. We should start by removing all obsolete dams large and small.

Digitalhunny: Please tell us (me) that you made an update video to this. Did it work? It's 2018...fingers crossed!!

James B: I miss living on the Elwah river....

David Dicesare: Damn.

Dada Fan: Think of the wonderful revenge the river could have had if the dam had just been instantly blown... What satisfaction against the evil and greedy white man! That'll teach 'em!

ToxicTommy: So what replaced the hydro electricity? A coal-fired plant?

Mojo Motive: If you need power again you will be building a new dam damn quick!

Janet Wilham: love the people love the ones who are lead by God and connected to nature and have great wisdom--a rare thing now of days. lots talk about global warming while failing to understand that every foot of black pavement, parking lot, streets etc. are causing the planet to heat up and taking the trees and plant life is starving our enviroment of needed oxygen and other important gases for our healthy living.Thanks for this great video.

livid snicket: Only rich countries can and do indulge in this kind of environmental sentimentality. Just take a look at how bad the environment is in poor countries.

Louis Cypher: If it wasn't for that dam the tribe would still be eating by candle light.

Empyrean B: This "documentary" is horribly one sided, very biased.

jthadcast: can't we harvest hydroelectric without damming?

dorgodorato: This is why we should build more nuclear power plants.

Gary Chynne: thank yew

Peruvian drummer: whats the song named at the end?

Laughing man788: Can we get a link to new video discussing if it worked or not? I feel like a time traveler right now, lol
