Engineering Reality offers insights into the power of environmental impact assessments in engineering a reality favourable to any investment, focusing on the highly contested environmental study of a large hydroelectric dam project in southern Colombia, El Quimbo. Deconstructing the highly contested environmental impact assessment of this large dam project, the book proposes the new Energy Data Justice Framework to assess energy projects.
