china's largest freshwater lake

dries up.

china's massive three gorges dam, which has already displaced more than 1 million people, may have claimed a new victim: environmental researchers say it has helped turn the country's largest freshwater lake into a dried-out plain.

typically, poyang lake covers 3,500 square kilometers in eastern china, but "last month only 200 square kilometers were underwater," leaving fishermen bereft and freighters unable to cross, according to a le monde story the guardian ran this week. - treehugger
