Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment report: Hydroelectricity or Wild Rivers

Hi
The Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment has released a report yesterday (31/05/2012) entitled Hydroelectricity or Wild Rivers.

It can be found here.

There is also a short piece on scoop about it as well with a link to a you tube video of the commissioner explaining the aspects of the report.

I have not had a chance to read it yet but apparently it is pretty interesting.
