In Washington State, environmentalists wrote into their initiative that hydro power wasn't to be considered a renewable power resource.

If enough water is removed from Washington rivers for agricultural irrigation, industry, and lawns, and if there's less precipitation feeding those rivers due to climate change, maybe hydro isn't as renewable as it used to be.

I'm a moderate on this issue, favoring some hydro and some salmon rivers. mmm...salmon! (and mmm...dams, engineering marvels we love to visit on RV trips).
