HELP US!

Hidroaysén is a huge hidroelectric-plants system that was approved by the Chilean government on May 9th 2011, even though 61% of the population was against it, even though there are other multiple ways to produce energy in this country in a natural, environment-friendly way (Ex: Atacama dessert)

The dams constructed will flood over 5000 hectare. And destroy this beautiful place.


The energy won’t even directly benefit the area in which the dams will be built. A 2.300 Km. long, 100 m. wide transmision line will take all the energy to the capital of this country, the voltage towers will be built every 400 meters, and they mean 23.000 hectare of total deforestation. They will go across 6 National Parks, 11 Nature Reserves, 26 areas worth conservation and 32 private protected areas.

But, that’s still not all completing this project will take about 15 years for it to start being productive, and the whole thing will only work/be useful for about 50 years, which in the grand scheme of things is nothing compared to the disaster it’ll be leaving behind.

Currently in Chile several protests, demostrations and manifestations are being held, a second poll revealed that 78% of the population is against this monster, but the government still plans to carry on with it. An international manifestation is planned for May 21th.

HELP US GET THE WORD OUT, EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT FROM CHILE, IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT AND REBLOG THIS.
