The world's tallest dam is in the works. China has built many massive structures in the past several decades.Now, environmental authorities in China have approved construction plans to build the world’s tallest dam. But they also acknowledged the structure would mean further harm to already endangered species. The 1030-foot dam will serve as a hydropower project, built along the Dadu River in the country’s southwestern Sichuan province. The work is expected to take a decade. The country’s environmental ministry was open about their knowledge of the adverse impact it would have on the area’s biodiversity.They said, “The project will affect the spawning and movement of rare fish species, as well as the growth of endangered plants, including the Chinese yew, which is under first-class state protection." As potential counter measures the group recommended habitat protection in tributaries and increased breeding and releasing.China’s desire to become less reliant upon fossil fuels had created a surge in hydroelectric plant building in recent years. A Chinese expert on the area’s geography has already attributed a major landslide to the hydropower plants and believes earthquakes are soon to follow.
