The problem is in Hunan, Hubei, Jiangxi, probably Anhui provinces.
They probably DRAIN their lake side water for HYDROELECTRICITY, while the 3 Gorge withold water from them, also for ELECTRICITY GENERATING $$$$$. These provinces obviously cannot afford to buy "electricity" from Sichuan, Shanxi, Shaanxi, or Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang!|
Draining of water from the LAKES, reduces "evaporation" of water, lowers the RH of these provinces.
Without water vapour, YOU CANNOT HAVE RAIN - so they report DROUGHT.
We might have to negotiate (subject to comfirmation from our MASTER SCIENTIST - Mr. Wong Guo Sheng, Chief Director of the Yangtze River Authority). To increase RAIN MAKING in Hunan, Hubei, Jiangxi, probably Anhui (coastal province get their rain from convection with the SEA) - certain RH level must be maintain, with COOLING hillsides to cause precipitations!
I forgot exactly the RH -TEMPERATURE curves in physics class. Long time since university days!
(AT lower hill side temperatures -so hillside activity is very vitally monitored, we need less RH to create rains!)
Somehow, Guangdong, Zhejiang and most of all Jiangsu must support the FOOD PRODUCING provinces of China. Thisis VITAL commodity. We must not PENALIZED these province and then also rely on them for our GRAIN, FISH and MEAT.
So, MY SUGGESTED SOLUTION is
(1) Guangdong, Zhejiang, Jiangsu - INVEST in local KINETIC STORING reservoir - NOBODY will be happy - it cost additional MONEY $$$$ - BUT should be cheaper than building more power plants.
(2) 3-gorge can operate at maximum capacity during low load months, while HUNAN, HUBEI, JIANGXI and ANHUI has to work out their best COST/BENEFIT equation of hydroelectric production for their own provincial use or LOSE the rain from lack of RH over their respective VALLEY or BASINS.
