Essay about Three Gorges Dam in China: The Benefits of Hydroelectic Dams

Satisfactory Essays
Why would you not want to solve a world problem? There are many problems affecting the world today, and one of the biggest ones is pollution. China is trying to do their part by constructing hydroelectric dams like the Three Gorges Dam. The topic is extremely controversial, because while the dams create energy the rising water levels have forced people to move and artifacts to be destroyed.

The Three Gorges Dam can hold water back keeping it from flooding and taking lives. In the last flood fewer people died, because of the dam. Three Gorges can also use the water it collected in the floods to help people out during the dry season.

So with all the lives Three Gorges could save and the food it can help produce, why wouldn’t you want to build it?
So more hydroelectric dams will lead to more clean energy, a stronger economy, and it even helps out when nature is at its worst. So why wouldn’t you want to build it. Sadly, there are some that argue that the dam would destroy artifacts, and some of the Chinese well-being. Though I really wouldn’t worry about the artifacts.
