8:04pm: billions, watts, and leaks
The Washington Post, Letter to Editor: China's $24 Billion Question

It's a relief to see that China spent only $24 billion building the largest dam in history, which will generate 85 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity.

Boston spent more than $14 billion on the "Big Dig," and it doesn't generate a single watt.

I hope the Three Gorges Dam won't leak.
