Three Gorges controversy

The New York Times had a big article on the human and environmental impact of the Three Gorges Dam project, plus other dams. Chinese Dam Projects Criticized for Their Human Costs

There is still one question I have – how many workers have died during this project? You certainly hear about it when there is no loss of life, but I think construction in China doesn’t have the best safety record.

  1. Hi Emily,
    I found your blog via the Gadling story. I am fascinated and thank you for being so diligent in your updates. In particular, I appreciate the link to the Three Gorges news. I first understood the project by reading about in National Geographic.

    A few years ago, the Salvation Army became the dumping ground for 12 years of yellow magazines. I assured myself that I would keep up via the internet. I was living in a tiny house, OK?

    Thanks for bringing the issue back into focus for me.

    I’m asking Santa for a new membership.

    Keep blogging!
