Patagonia: Wild Refuge Under Attack

Two of Chile's wild and pristine rivers, the Baker and the Pascua, are under attack. These rivers are lifelines for Chilean Patagonia. But huge Chilean and European companies want to dam them for no more than 50 years of electricity. To serve Chile’s biggest cities and its mammoth copper industry, these rivers would be destroyed for electricity to be sent thousands of kilometers north through transmission lines that would create one of the world's longest clearcuts—much of it through untouched temperate rainforests of a type found nowhere else on the planet outside Patagonia.
