Issue 12 - Rivers of Chile

E-mail Print
 
 
Our special section on threatened rivers in this new edition of Patagon Journal includes articles from leading river advocates in Chile and internationally, and it comes at an opportune time. In August, the Endesa energy company announced that it was renouncing its water rights for developing five hydroelectric projects in Chile, among them plans for the Futaleufu and Puelo rivers in Patagonia. In the magazine, we show how and why Chile could seize on this important shift in their energy industry to become a worldwide leader in sustainable energy, adventure travel and river conservation.

Our Climate Change in Patagonia series

Scientists say in order to maintain a natural balance on Earth, one that provides the environmental conditions upon which all life depends, the amount of carbon dioxide contained in the atmosphere should be below 350 parts per million (ppm). At the beginning of human civilization our atmosphere naturally contained around 275 ppm. Humanity’s growing reliance on coal, oil, and natural gas, or fossil fuels, spiked tremendously the amount of carbon dioxide beginning in the late 20th century. Today, we have 404 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere, and its rising every year, moving us increasingly farther away from the 350 ppm goal.
