Excellent post, thank you very much, well researched.
My first comment is this sounds very much like the issues, only a much larger scale, of Glen Canyon Damn in AZ. Many of the same issues. I personally
backpacked down some of the canyons PRIOR to them becoming part of Lake Powell. I have studied Glen Canyon Damn thoroughly, back in the 1970's. I
will not go into detail. Again, the same exact issues, sediment, property destruction, river changes, increased pollution, weather changes etc, all on
a much smaller scale.
This monster is something else, affecting hundreds of millions of people, entire cities. I find it absolutely unbelievable that the Chinese are
destroying their beautiful rivers and mountains, all in the name of money and prestige. And to boot, lets build it around several active earthquake
faults. What are these people thinking?
Also, in the movie, I found it interesting the lady stated the Chinese
press, TV and radio are NOT allowed to even discuss anything about the project. Does that sound familiar?
