Death Of The Mekong, River Of Buddhism
CEO AMI Environmental, USA
This paper discusses the fragile ecosystem of the Mekong River, ASEAN’s main river. It discusses the various dam projects, and the environmental degradation that is ongoing. There is no more transportation of silt by the river, since it is all being trapped upstream by the Chinese sponsored dams. The author reminds us that there are power-source alternatives: solar and wind that are less destructive for the people of ASEAN, people relying most on the Earth, for their livelihoods.
