Abstract:

The Three Gorges Dam presently under construction in China's Hubei Province is the largest, most expensive hydroelectric project on earth. Its magnitude dwarfs many of the largest dams in the United States. It is a project whose merits are heavily debated. While some reports suggest it will provide critical flood control and electric power to the country, many argue that the project is clearly the most hazardous and deadly dam ever designed. Issues of human rights, major resettlements and irreversible environmental damage further complicate the debate. Questions and answers follow.
