As we look for a solution to global energy problems and a way out of the climate crisis- some are turning to dams and hydroelectric power as a source of â€śgreenâ€ť energy. But at what cost? Massive dams are being built and considered all over the world, despite mounting concern over their economic, environmental and human impacts. On this edition, weâ€™ll take a closer look at the damage caused by hydropower projects, and weâ€™ll visit a community trying to keep their culture and homeland free from the destructive influence of river dams.
