    I heard the dam might be responsible for induced seismology and landslides. Thousands of people have died as a result of the earthquakes and landslides.

    Hi Pedro,
    I hope you don't mind me messaging you. My name is Kirsty Wilde and I am from a company called Captive Minds a production company based in London. We are putting together a series based on climate change. The series will involve a live feed of 19 year old Parker Liautaud, who is trekking across the south pole. The series will also have debates and archive all involving and based on climate change.

    We are looking for stills and footage of the Three Gorges Dam at the moment, when I saw your photographs. Please email me directly on to discuss further if this is something you are interested.

    Best wishes
    Kirsty Wilde
