Tibet’s Nu River About to Get Dam’d

According to the Wall Street Journal, China’s government is planning on constructing a dam on the Nu River. The Nu River flows down from the Tibetan Plateau, through Yunnan Province, into Myanmar (Burma).

The Nu River is China’s largest remaining free-flowing river.
