CHINA. Chongqing Province.  A farmer near to the Yangtze in an area that faces flooding once the 3 Gorges dam floods. The flooding of the three Gorges, by damming the Yangtze near the town of YiChang, has remained a controversial subject due to the negative environmental consequences and the displacement of millions of people in the flood plain. The Yangtze River however is reported to be at its lowest level in 150 years as a result of a country-wide drought. It is China's longest river and the third longest in the world. Originating in Tibet, the river flows for 3,964 miles (6,380km) through central China into the East China Sea at Shanghai.  2008.
