"Nam Theun 2 is the Laotian version of Thailand’s infamous Pak Mun Dam. Unlike
Pak Mun, which kills fish and other aquatic organisms only in one river, the Mun, Nam
Theun 2 hydropower project is brilliantly designed to kill them in three separate rivers: Nam
Theun, Xe Bang Fai, and Nam Hinboun. No matter how badly Nam Theun 2 turns out,
however, the World Bank predictably will represent it as another one of its success stories."
