Decisions nevertheless have to be made, despite scientiﬁc uncertainties. Second, consider the aspiration to make technological decisions on behalf of efﬁciency—initially on a national scale but later to meet single targets. It survives in the fws and nmfs biological opinions, including the rpas, which apparently determined the 2001 Annual Operations Plan under the esa and drought conditions and were upheld by the courts. Efﬁciency meant maximizing the beneﬁt—ﬁsh recovery, a single target—with little regard for cost.
But no agency was autonomous even within its own mandate and jurisdiction. S. district courts. 47 Oregon Senator Ron Wyden and Representative Greg Walden, among other elected representatives of the basin, took the lead in seeking federal aid through Congress. State and local agencies and ofﬁcials, including Governor Kitzhaber, also were involved. The ideal of a single, central authority becomes even more unrealistic when nongovernment organizations are taken into account. These include the three Klamath tribes (the Klamath, the Modoc, and the Yahooskin Band of Snake) recognized by treaty in 1864, the nrc, and the large number of interest groups involved.
Consequently, it is not surprising that there is no impersonal scientiﬁc basis for the 2001 Annual Operations Plan or any competing plan. The scientiﬁc studies commissioned by the bureau, the fws, the nmfs, the Klamath Water Users Association, and Secretary Norton through the nrc reﬂect their respective policy positions. Nor is it surprising, given the importance of science in the 2001 Annual Operations Plan, that self-assessed losers attacked science and scientists themselves. Thus the Klamath case calls into question Progressive era faith in applied science as the foundation for policy and as a practical alternative to politics.
