Who was it who said hydro energy is environmentally friendly?. Its a disaster whichever way you look at it. And what is it going to be when solar or hydrogen takes over. Supporting large corporate projects has only one effect in the economy; inevitably a larger wealth gap. A recent NASA study in the US found that despite the impending horror of the results of climate change in the US; [ ie; the ground water aquifer in the western states is so depleted it is basically unrecoverable; a potential cause of conflict in itself;] the real possibility is that wealth inequality will cause massive disruption by 2050 to the point of social breakdown.
It is difficult to respect many of the developing nations when they cannot learn from the stupidity of their former colonial masters or the impending doom of the wealthier earlier polluters.
