The U.S. should quickly move back to its earlier posture. America can contribute to avoiding more serious conflict, but the opportunity for doing so is fast escaping. The dispute concerns the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, under construction inside Ethiopia close to the Sudanese border on the Blue Nile River. For half a century, Ethiopia has dreamed of a dam that would generate hydro-electricity for its population of over 100 million. The Blue Nile Gorge is an ideal topographical location. Mountains on either side of the Blue Nile allow for a deep, large-volume reservoir with a small surface area resulting in very little evaporation. The Ethiopian Dam could provide enough clean, renewable electricity for Ethiopia with substantial amounts left over for export to neighboring countries.
