Brazil's government is considering construction two large hydroelectric dams within the boundaries of the Amazon rainforest. As a result, a heated discussion as to whether the economic benefits of such a project outweigh the environmental costs is taking place.

You're group is a member of a larger consulting firm hired by the Brazilian government to provide guidance in deciding whether or not to construct two large hydroelectric dams within the Amazon rainforest and it's outlying areas. You're group's job is to provide an initial analysis of the situation. You will be responsible for presenting your findings to the larger group.

You will be challenged as you move through this project. Your opinion will be considered and you will be expected to be able to defend whatever recommendations you provide to the larger committee (your classmates).
