The United States Congress is currently considering reconciling the energy bills passed by the House and the Senate for a comprehensive energy bill. Under consideration is the hydropower industry’s wishlist contained in H.R. 8 (North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2015).
A new interactive Google Earth video, produced by International Rivers and Friends of the Earth International, aims to show how damming rivers around the world can exacerbate climate change.
The approximately 12-minute video uses computer animation to simulate the potential climate hazards associated with building dams in Africa, the Himalayas, and the Amazon.
