Dams protected Columbia River from negative impacts of climate change

This is a study that anti-dam organizations won’t tell you about. Because it weakens most of their critics portraying dams as powerful agents of river destruction.

That study suggests on the contrary that large dams provide “ecological and engineering resilience” to climate change in the Columbia River basin.

The Canadian journal Atmosphere-Ocean1 published a special issue on the Columbia River Basin. One of the articles looked at the effects of climate warming on stream flow in the headwaters and downstream reaches of seven sub-basins of the Columbia River from 1950 to 2010. Climate change is widely expected to alter stream flow and potentially disrupt water management systems.
