Dam building taking off in India

When my PopMech.com editor asked if I’d look into dam building in India, I had no idea the extent of the plans there. But with the world’s leading dam builder right next door in the form of China, it is no wonder that India has started a push to create as much hydropower as possible. The hundreds of dams expected in the Southeast Asian country will focus in the Himalayans and aim to reduce India’s carbon emissions (the fourth largest emitter of CO2 in the world) and support the growing need for power. Check out my report here.
