Warming Wednesdays: Hydropower development in Bhutan


Here's something I doubt I'll see anything of during my trip (see previous post): a national development strategy for Bhutan that builds friendly ties with its gargantuan Indian neighbor -- and provides electricity in a relatively sustainable fashion. Global warming will certainly increase Himalayan run-off in coming years. Presumably these smart mountain survivors are building for flooding as well as exploiting steady flows.

This post was queued up before I left for Bhutan.

hydro power is definitely necessary for bhutan as it allows tourism to flourish more conveniently. hence, making holidays in bhutan amazing than ever. :)
