The Belo Monte Hydroelectric Dilemma
Brazil depends on improving its energy generation capacity to sustain economical growth, but is Belo Monte, a new hydroelectric plant in the Amazon forest, the answer?
A three decades project is now in evidence in Brazil. Nearly six months before presidential elections, Belo Monte, a hydroelectric power plant, suddenly became a priority for the government. It has to be built, say the president and the Mines and Energy Minister. It’s a mistake, say a number of NGOs and indian leaders.
