Default Belo Monte Dam construction blocked

BBC News - Brazil judge blocks Amazon Belo Monte dam

Quote:
A Brazilian judge has blocked plans to build a huge hydro-electric dam in the Amazon rainforest because of environmental concerns.

Federal judge Ronaldo Desterro said environmental requirements to build the Belo Monte dam had not been met.

He also barred the national development bank, BNDES, from funding the project.

Thank you judge, thank you. Now the next step is to completely cancel it and find another green energy solution.
