Last River Lost: The Sacrifice of the Stanislaus

Stanislaus: The Struggle for a River is the story of the damming of the Stanislaus River by the New Melones Dam and the Friends of the River who fought to protect one of the most rafted rivers in the United States.

The trailer for the "Last River Lost" brings to life the struggle to save the Stanislaus River in the 1970s, then threatened by the Army Corps of Engineers. In Spring 1979, Mark Dubois gained national attention when he put his life on the line to prevent the filling of the New Melones reservoir. His action, and the crash course in activism that the Stanislaus community experienced, left a lasting mark on the environmental movement in the United States and the world.

With Jerry Brown back in control as Governor of California, can he possibly reverse the damage done to the Stanislaus River and let the river run free once more? He supported Proposition 17 then, perhaps he still does?

Chasing the Green Dragon

In a new effort to push their agenda, the Christian Right has produced a series of videos to help push their antiquated worldview.  Please watch this propaganda below as religious zealouts speak out against science and blame the environmental movement for the world's problems.  As they criticize the efforts of the "Green Dragon" and promote the greatness of Jesus Christ and his gospel, please remember that not one person in this video is a qualified scientist so their opinions on science are baseless.
