Bolivian environmentalists have strong concerns over dams Brazil is planning to build along the Madeira River. "The consequences of the dams on the Madeira River will add to the process that has been destroying the Amazon for decades," said Bolivian public health specialist Pablo Villegas, researcher in the Foro Boliviano Sobre Medio Ambiente y Desarrollo (FOBOMADE). The impact caused by the Madeira River Hydroelectric Complex, according to environmentalists\' predictions, will be the greatest ever caused by an infrastructure project, giving all the more reason for alarm.
