Great Gorge Dam Site

The largest most powerful dam ever built is changing the landscape of the Yangtze river Valley forever. It is aimed to increase power output, control flooding and improve navigation…but its value is widely debated in China and abroad. The destructive flooding of archeological and cultural sites and the disruption and dissolution of the continuity of life for more than 1.3 million people is a pretty hefty price to pay for it intended accomplishments. This largest mass relocation that humankind has ever experienced has also arouse much criticism and the window of uncertainty is open to increased dangers of landslides, flooding and other unknown reactions to these massive ecological changes.
