For the good of all, to support all LIFE, please stop to build the third hydro-power station on the Senegal river in Gouina, Mali!

We all need energy, but it's a great difference for the present and the future of the Earth what kind of source of energy we develop and support.
Atomic, carbon, fuel, gas energy are non-renewable and could destroy every form of Life by an accident or purposely.

Water is a wonderful source of clean energy, but is it a really safe source of Energy???
African rivers play a very important role in daily life Africans, they provide drinking water for people and animals, fertilize soil, enable transport. In the dry season, almost eight months per year - human lives depend on drinking water and fish from rivers.

International Ecologists claim there are myriad problems with large dams in tropical ecosystems. Large dams interfere with the hydrological cycle and nutrient flows through an ecosystem, while restricting or blocking access to breeding and feeding grounds for migratory fish species. Meanwhile areas inundated with water can generate substantial greenhouse gas emissions. Design flaws in some tropical dams, which draw methane from the base of their reservoirs, can exacerbate climate impacts. Finally flooding in the reservoir area can displace communities traditionally dependent on rivers, while creating hardship downstream from reduce fisheries. The big artificial lakes are responsible for malaria, bilharzia, schistosomiasis etc. The dams influenced social-economical-political life, 10% of humanity fall into category of dam-affected people.

Africa has the biggest potential in solar and wind energy around the world. New technology allow to build faster and cheaper solar-power station than hydro-power station, for example the 155-megawatt new Nzema Solar-plant in Ghana will cost 305 million Euro to build and will be fully operational in 2015, hydro-power station Gouina 140-megawatt will cost 324 million Euro (maybe more), commissioning in 2017. Both projects start in 2014.

The waterfall Gouina, one of the most beautiful and majestic natural falls around the world should be preserved for the future generation without any harm!
Oceans, lakes, rivers don´t belong to one nation. Big evaporation from artificial lakes in Africa can cause stormy weather in America. Less fresh water in the oceans can cause malting of Greenland and Arctic glaciers.

Fish, hippopotamus, frogs, birds, monkeys, and  more than 10.000 trees will be gone.

For the good of all, to support all life, please stop to build the third hydro-power station on the Senegal river in Gouina, Mali!!!

“If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter....

“If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to marvel at it.  People would walk around it, marveling at its big pools of water, its little pools and the water flowing between the pools.  People would marvel at the bumps on it, and the holes in it, and they would marvel at the thin layer of gas surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas. The people would marvel at all the creatures walking around on the surface of the ball, and at the creatures in the water.  The people would declare it precious because it was the only one, and they would protect it so that it would not be hurt.  The ball would be the greatest wonder known, and people would come to behold it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty and to wonder how it could be. People would love it, and defend it with their lives because they would somehow know that their lives, their own roundness, could be nothing without it. If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter.
Joe Miller
