Save the River Mekong, Save Millions of Lives Downstream
by Nguyen Tien Dzung
This video clip has been made to illustrate the severe effects of climate change and the irresponsible development program of dam makers upstream to the Mekong river. May it be one more plea to stop the construction of this dam. Please, let us take action and thereby save millions of lives downstream.
Currently, China is considering to release the water to "save" the other downstream. Would it be optimistic if Laos, Cambodia, Thailand cannot take the same action with proper and sufficient volume?
In my opinion, this is the equivalent of a narcissistic person who would place someone in the risk of drowning to save them to get a reward afterward.
