Three Gorges Dam: Year 13

 Watch this video clip which outlines some of the environmental issues associated with the 3 Gorges Dam.

This is a very controversial project and an excellent case study. There are many past questions where this case study would prove invaluable such as:

  • Assess the potential risks associated with energy production.
  • To what extent has a scheme to supply energy which you have studied been successful?
  • Choose one scheme which exists to supply energy. Explain the attitudes of different groups to the scheme and any disagreements or conflicts of interest that have occurred.
  • Assess the environmental impacts associated with renewable energy resources.
