Chinese three gorges dam project - The Human Cost - Video

At final completion, the Three Gorges Dam is expected to displace upwards of 5 million people, 1.5 million in the first wave followed by 3.5 million more as the reservoir fills. The population displacement is huge, analogous to removing and resettling the entire population of the state of Colorado. China has four more dams of this size planned for the upper Yangtze.
