This is a fantastic little video about one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe, the Soca in Slovenia. It shows the importance of a free flowing river and its diverse ecosystems, and how all this can be harmed by hydroelectric powerplants.
Of course, nuclear energy can not be considered as an option anymore, but we should nevertheless remind ourselves that not all energys without CO2 emission deserve automatically the title "green energy". There have to be more questions answered before passing this test, and destroying such amazing ecosystems is definitely not the right answer. This whole eco energy thing is probably one of the biggest problems we ´re facing now and we have to take greater care, otherwise it might hit us like a freight train in some years to come.
This is worth watching!
