troubled waters

A good friend passed on this fantastic interactive site published by the Guardian a few months ago and I’ve been meaning to share it. John Vidal, the Guardian’s environment editor, explores the ecological and cultural impacts of dam construction, illegal logging and urban development in climate change threatened communities located along Southeast Asia’s main waterway, the Mekong River. The written segments are decent, but the vivid beauty of the images and short video clips are what make this piece particularly striking.
