Who will save the mother-river of Myanmar?

Post by Saiua » Wed Jan 01, 2014 11:59 am

People of Burma or Myanmar are seriously concerned about the hydropower-dam project on the River Irrawaddy which is the essential lifeline of the country. Along the upper reaches of the Irrawaddy River, a total of seven major cascade Hydro Power Plants are designed to be constructed at Myitsone, Chipwe, Wutsok, Hpizaw, Kaunglanhpu, Laza and Renam. The total capacity of the project is estimated at 16,500 MW with an annual power generation of 100 billion kilowatt, most of which would go to China.

With a ceasefire process in Kachin state on the go, China hopes the postponed hydropower project will reopen sometime after elections in 2015. Myitsone Hydro Electric Project is one of the largest of hydropower-dam project on the River Irrawaddy. The aim is to generate 90 percent of Yunnan province's electricity in exchange for $17 billion over 50 years. The general population has shown antipathy towards the project, yet the former military junta as well as the current quasi-civilian government is keen to supply electricity to China.

First of all...........Happy and Prosperous New Year 2014 to all!

Here is my answer and response to that topic!

There are 2 kinds of humans in this world.
1) Those who sees Cent as Cent and Dollar as Dollar
2) Those who sees Cent as Dollar and Dollar as Cent.

MyanMar’s Mother River will be save by the first category humans and will be destroyed forever by the second category humans. Myanmar is at the cross road and the smart and cunning Dragon is waiting in the wing to swallow in time. Myanmar’s bright future relies on the hands of the FIRST humans.

Only leaders, who does not take bribes nor condone corruption in anyway, shape or form with high intellect, clear vision for the future, had strong will, fiercely independent minded and brilliant strategies with innovative and creative insights will save the Mother River of MyanMar.
Puppets, bribe takers, corrupt officials, shallow knowledge, skin deep insights, ignorant arrogant leaders or officials, selfish greedy money monger who does not value their motherland and willing to exchange for “cents on the dollar” mentality personals (in short frogs who live in ponds and sees their pond as an Ocean), whoever they are WILL NOT save but in fact destroy not only the River, but the Delta and its environs thus effecting the entire nation and the people with permanent damage that is irreversible. Just as oil and water do not mix, idiots and fools does not mix with highly intelligent beings.

China Mekong Dam Project Generates Growing Controversy

China has the greatest number of dams in the world, though its plan to construct a dam on the cross-border Mekong River is increasingly creating controversy. In 2011, the government in Burma, also known as Myanmar, halted the two countries' joint Myitsone dam project after protests at home. U.S.-based experts think more transparency from China can help ease the disputes.

China not only has built the world’s largest hydroelectric dam - the Three Gorges Dam -- it also has the greatest number of dams in the world. Besides building dams in China, Chinese businesses are a top builder of dams abroad.

Chinese banks and companies have helped to build hundreds of dams in dozens of countries, particularly in Africa and Southeast Asia, according to figures from the group International Rivers.

Yes, Burma can reclaim herself as the world biggest and finest rice exporter if the current rulers are smart enough to utilized the already nature given good and fertile soil of Ayeyarwaddy Delta and the preservation of Myitsone, the confluence where 2 rivers create the Ayeyarwaddy River, the mother of all rivers of Burma.

If the current quasi civilian rulers are still ignorant, just like it's predecessor military rulers, Burma will not, cannot achieve as world's largest, finest rice exporter let alone save the mother river Ayeyarwaddy (Irrawaddy).

See how the stupid dams are destroying the river. Say thank you to their (Generals’) Stepfather China for making this happened. When finally the river dried up and dies, everything will be dead including Cities, animals and humans. This is how ignorance can destroy a once rich resource nation.

It is just a matter of time there will be no more Ayeyarwady Delta in Burma.
