Dams and Rivers

Posted on 3rd December 2014 by admin in Rivers of the world

There is an excellent video on Netflix about dams in the US.

Here is an excerpt from a wonderful site about river dams:

What will 3,700 more new dams do that 48,000 existing ones haven’t already done?

Invite more problems.

According to a new study done by researchers in Europe, the 3,700 new dams under construction or planned for construction around the world will not meet the electricity demands of the developing countries where the dams are planned. Instead, these dams will pave the way for new ecological problems, reduce the number of free-flowing rivers around the world by 21%, and perhaps even cause conflict between countries over water.
