Sacrificing the Rainforest on the Altar of Energy

Milagros Salazar, Inter Press Service: "The construction of five hydroelectric dams in Peru as part of an energy deal with Brazil will do considerable damage to the environment, such as the destruction of nearly 1.5 million hectares of jungle over the next 20 years, according to an independent study. More than 1,000 km of roads will have to be carved out of primary and secondary forests to build the dams and power plants and put up power lines, says the report, carried out by engineer Jose Serra for ProNaturaleza, a leading conservation organisation in Peru."
