Plans to build a massive hydro-electric dam on the land of two unique tribes in Guyana would lead to the destruction of a unique people and vast tracts of rainforest says anthropologist Dr Audrey Butt Colson.

Hydroelectric power is fine if it causes no harm to the environment, but I suspect the damage will be acute and long-lasting. Particularly when they cut down trees to build the dams!

I like the idea of hydroelectric if it doesn't harm forests or other life especially people

Most deforestation is caused by people's dietary choices to eat cattle and animals.

Once again we see the rainforests under attack the insatiable quest that man has for power is driving the planet to destruction not to mention the poor native tribes forced off their lands.If all the rainforests disappear so will we trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen that all living creatures on earth depend upon.Leave the forests alone.
