I also read an article about the environmental issues concerning the Three Gorges Dam (Wikipedia). I only mention this dam because, well, it’s so prominently featured in the Civ IV game. I find that there’s some irony in ‘building a dam to provide clean energy’ versus ‘the dam could cause landslides, soil erosion and pollution’.
