Energy of water is an old source of renewable energy. Before oil, petroleum and coal were discovered, people were using the renewable energies. Being harnessed from the environment, these renewable resources were and still are good for the humans as well as the earth. But, with fossil fuels speeding up the daily chores, people stopped harnessing the renewable energies and became comfortable using coal and petroleum for cooking and running automobiles, respectively.

Can you please elaborate? Or do I just put that in the BS file?

Yes, there is a lot of power in hydroelectric, and more still if we can start capturing tidal and wave energy sources.

However, they don't come without their costs in both disrupting silt flows, and disrupting fish migration. And, of course, massive amounts of environmental destruction.

Is it possible to measure the cultural impact of when the Government chose to destroy one of the oldest continuously occupied native communities at Celilo Falls "For Progress"?

Yes, Hydroelectric is one energy source which is still heavily used.
But, we need to continue to pursue other energy sources too.

...and now they're using coal for running automobiles. I'd hardly call that progress after a hundred years of squandered opportunities for energy self sufficiency.
