  • "En 1913, le projet de faire un barrage dans le Yosemite National Park en Californie dans le but de subvenir aux besoins en eau de la ville de San Francisco, a soulevé la première contreverse environnementale aux Etats-Unis. Gifford Pinchat (chef des services forestiers) et John Muir (naturaliste et fondateur du Sierra Club) s'affrontent avec des visions différentes sur les méthodes de protections de l'environnement. Le gouvernement américain tranchera en faveur de la construction du barrage. Plusieurs extraits d'images de films d'archives et d'images du parc d'aujourd'hui sont présentées."
