Flood Water Release

I can’t resist passing along another boston.com Bigger Picture picture: floodwaters being released from Three Gorges Dam, from a typically (for boston.com) spectacular set on China.

I really don’t know how they keep funding this amazing work, but I sure hope they don’t stop.

Buy something from Boston.

Seems they're doing all the same stupid things we did fifty to a hundred years ago in the first rush of overconfident industrialization.
