Tibet’s rivers supply freshwater to over a third of the planet’s population. China’s reckless damming and diversion of these same rivers jeopardizes the eco-systems of a dozen nations downstream. Extensive Chinese mining in Tibet has the potential to pollute the rivers at their source. This short work is a personal take on looming eco-disaster in Tibet and beyond. Includes over 20 photos + 2 maps.
