All eyes on Chinese dams as Mekong countries count down to the monsoon

China has built and operates 11 dams in the upper Mekong and plans to build eight more dams.

Why so few? For comparison over 200 dams larger than 15MW are planned, under construction or completed in the Lower Mekong basin portions of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

Laos does what China tells it to do, a bit like Thailand. 

So apparently you don't know that the biggest investors in this project are Thai.

I can pretty much guarantee when Thailand wants water, they wont get it, and when they have too much of it, they'll get more of it dumped to flood them

It would appear that most of the world,s problems are caused by not having enough water, or too much of it. I think they call it Murphy,s Law 🙂
