SPENDING TOMORROW'S MONEY ON YESTERDAY'S IDEAS.

将未来的钱花在过时的构想之上

 

WHAT WILL SITE C COST MY FAMILY?

Site C is projected to cost $8.8 billion, a massive public debt that will take taxpayers and ratepayers 70 years to pay off. BC Hydro is already planning to raise rates 28% over the next five years; Site C costs will be added to that once the dam is operational. Can our families afford it?

Site C究竟会对于我一家人带来多少负担?

Site C的开支,预计将达到88亿元。衍生出来的公共债务需要纳税人以及电费缴交者70年才能还清。BC Hydro已经计划在未来5年内将电费提升28%;Site C水坝营运之后,只会加重负担。你的一家能够承受吗?

 

If Site C overruns its budget like BC Hydro’s last three projects, it will cost $11.9 Billion.

假若Site C水坝超支,就像是BC Hydro过去三个项目一样,其成本有可能高达119亿元。

 

Energyconservation strategies would create similar benefits at 1/3 the cost of Site C.

节省能源的策略能够提供同样的效益,而成本只有Site C的三分之一。

 

AS A GROWING PROVINCE, DON'T WE NEED THE ENERGY?

There is no current demand for the electricity that would be generated by the Site C mega-dam. BC Hydro’s own data doesn’t project any demand for at least ten years into the dam’s operating life —and BC Hydro has a long history of over-estimating future demand. Additionally, by ‘eating up’ any possible future demand, Site C has driven away investment and jobs in the solar, wind, and geothermal sectors.

作为一个正在增长的省份,我们不需要更多能源吗?

目前并无需要建设Site C大型水坝。BC Hydro的数据显示,在水坝运作10年后,需求才会赶上供应。而BC Hydro经常夸大电力需求。此外,兴建水坝将独占将来所有的能源需求,扼杀另类能源,如太阳能、风力、与地热能可获取投资及制造就业的机会。

We may never need the electricity from Site C.

我们有可能永远都不需要使用Site C水坝所提供的电力。

 

AREN'T DAMS CONSIDERED "CLEAN" ENERGY?

The Site C dam was first proposed in the 1950s — projects like it are based on outdated ideas about energy development. Newer technologies, like wind and solar, are becoming cheaper and more effective every year. These alternatives also create jobs, can be built as they are needed, and have a lower overall environmental impact .

水坝不是“清洁”能源的一种吗?

Site C水坝是在1950年代提出-当时对能源开发的构想已经过时。新涌现出来的科技,比如是风力、太阳能,成本愈来愈低,效益愈来愈高。这些另类能源也可以创造就业机会,能够按照需要兴建,对环境的冲击也更低。

Site C is not past the point of no return. Stopping now will save billions of dollars.

Site C仍未达到不可挽回的地步。现在下马,将可节省数以十亿元计的开支。

WHAT WILL BE LOST IF SITE C IS BUILT?

If completed, Site C would destroy critical farmland, displace families, destroy irreplaceable wildlife habitat, and erase thousands of First Nations cultural sites. Wouldn’t our tax dollars would be better spent on healthcare, education, and creating real green energy solutions?

假若Site C建成,究竟会带来什么损失?

即若建成,Site C将会摧毁重要的农地、 迁徒家庭 、清除不能替代的野生动物栖息之地、夷平数以千计的原住民的文化地点。阁下的税款用在医疗、教育、以及真正绿色能源之上,不是更加用得其所吗?

The farmland that would be lost to flooding behind Site C could feed one million people.

将被Site C水坝所淹没的农地可为一百万人提供粮食。

What is Site C?

Site C水坝是什么?

Site C is an earth-fill mega-dam proposed for the Peace River Valley in Northeast BC.

Site C水坝是一个泥土堆砌的大型水坝,计划在卑诗省东北部的和平河谷(Peace River Valley)兴建。

Site C was first proposed in the 1950s as the third in a series of four dams, two of which were built.

Site C水坝是在1950年代提出的四大水坝的其中第三座水坝;已经有两座建成。

Site C was rejected by the BC government in 1982 and again in 1989 when the BC Utilities Commission found the electricity wasn’t needed.

Site C水坝被卑诗省政府先后在1982年及1989年否决,原因是卑诗公共服务委员会(BC Utilities Commission)认为并无需要。

Site C was resurrected again in 2010.

Site C在2010年重新被提出。

BC Hydro estimates Site C will take eight years to build and cost $8.9 billion-all of it borrowed money.

BC Hydro估计,Site C水坝需要8年兴建,开支高达89亿元,全部来自借贷。

 

The conversation about Site C is not over. Have your say.

就Site C水坝所展开的对话仍未结束,请踊跃发言。
