The 3 Gorges Dam is dis-gorging now because of heavy flooding in China
WOW, whatta an image:
The article discusses the main +s and -s of that gigantic hydro-electric structure, and there is no lack of them. I was tempted to think that the journalists were being negative in the usual American MSM way about China and its oversized national image. But after reading the whole piece I realized it was an even handed report about the obvious limitations to extreme engineering projects.
