Given the current climate in Washington, it is imperative that scientists and non-scientists alike fight for, and demand, that policies affecting the environment, health, and well-being of our society be science-based and supported with facts.

Humans like to think of landscapes—including our man-made structures—as immutable, unchanging backdrops to our lives. Now and then, however, we're reminded that even our greatest works are powerless against the forces of nature. Scott Greacen, Director of Friends of the Eel River, talks with Mikal Jakubal, long-time activist and filmmaker, about recent damage at the Oroville Dam and how those events shed light on broader questions about aging dams and flood-control infrastructure.
