Our goal is to save the Baltic Sea and its tributaries. By partnering with you, we see opportunities to get our message (or a partnership with you would give us the opportunity to get our message) and to make people aware of life beneath the surface. Thanks to this you could make an active choice to support biodiversity and living water.

Water power Industry is not creating green electricity it creates Mordor!

Hydroelectric plants and dams destroy nature, the natural environment and also destroys nature’s ability to create diversity, species richness and variety in lakes, rivers and oceans around the world. Today, 172 of 292 rivers are regulated by humans. Globally, there are approximately 39,000 large dams in the world.


The main reason for hydropower kills species that hydropower settles essential vitamins and diatoms to reach the sea. Hydroelectric plants and dams first destroys nature and the natural environment. The dams also destroy the  ability to protect life in lakes, rivers, seas and oceans around the world. The main reason why hydropower kills species is that hydropower dams stops silicon, essential vitamins and diatom to fertilize and enrich the water on its way to the sea. It is also so importent that silicon, essential vitamins and diatom coms out in to the seas and oceans.

The green energy is a priority for our politicians who support the UN climate report IPCC.


We also know that a number of developing countries have poor economy. The banks know that the ”green” hydropower provides good economy and provide a secure supply of electricity.


US Congress Sets Strict Limits on Global Dam Funding

Against all evidence of environmental destruction, widespread impoverishment and cost overruns, the World Bank is once again embracing mega-dams. In FY 2014, the Bank poured more than half of its power sector lending into large hydropower projects. The US Congress – still the biggest contributor to the Bank’s capital – has now sent a warning shot across the bow of international dam financiers.

The highest silicon concentrations are found in the forest rivers.

50% of diatoms has disappeared in Baltic sea and all of the fish species that are dependent on rivers has decreased in size, number and fitness. After 1970 more than 50% of diatoms has disappeared in Baltic sea.


The reduction of diatoms can be considered to be much higher than 50 % considering, most water utilities was built in the 1950s and 1960s and it started in early 1900s.

We are convinced that waterpower projects not should be considered as green! Water Power plants should instead be reconsidered as a treat to global environment as now can be seen in the Baltic area after more than 100 years with the old technology used in 95 % of the Swedish rivers.

The dams stops diatoms, they can not be consumed and falls to the bottom of the dammed lakes. Damming rivers with dams means that the flow of water stops and all suspended material containing nutrients, silicon and diatoms sink to the bottom. It is called sedimentation. From the dams flows a nutrient-poor waters further down in the river normally in much smaller amounts.

Diatoms are divided into more than 200 genera and it is estimated that there are 100,000 different species. Diatoms are a very important and popular food for plankton, which in turn serves as food for fish. Diatomes are pieces of art besides the great importance they play in the worldwide ecosystem of Mother Earth!


Free floating rivers support entire ecosystems. They carry tons of nutrient-rich silt downstream, a cocktail of elements needed for growing plants: nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Silt is essential for agriculture and for bolstering the deltas against rising sea levels. Dams block silt, and they block fish migration.

We from Save The Baltic-Water For Life appeals to developing countries that do not make the same mistake when it comes to the ”green” hydropower.

Stop new hydropower plants in our children Rivers
