Posted on 06/23/2020 9:56:07 AM PDT by struggle
The Three Gorges Dam is one of the biggest if not the biggest gravity dam in the world. China is currently seeing record flooding, with three-four days of rain still in the future for the area around the dam.
When the dam was under construction, they asked foreign consultants to come in and inspect the dam. The consultants noted poor concrete quality and insufficient rebar supports. The Chinese then kicked the consultants out and called them racist.
A good video of the extent of the flooding.
The dam itself has taken damage from a 2012 earthquake and is now currently stressed. If it were to break, millions of lives could be at stake, especially since a huge amount of power is wired through the dam, thus, if it breaks during the night, people could be making a blind rush into the dark and into a wall of water.
Cryin’ won’t help you, prayin’ won’t do you no good.
Any chance there’s CIA weather manipulation involved here?
Seems pretty risky if it really would put millions of lives at risks.
This could take out millions in one fell swoop. It would be a monument to communism’s ability to continue the extinguishing of human life on an unfathomable scale.
>Any chance theres CIA weather manipulation involved here?
Don’t know, June flooding is pretty normal, but this time it’s VERY high.
Also, Chinese associate natural disasters with a change in the mandate from heaven, in other words, a change of power.
I read a while back that the lake created from the dam is so huge it has changed the weather patterns of the surrounding area............More rainy............
Predicted long ago given wide use of inferior concrete and bad design, prone to undercutting.
So the atheistic CCP has not squashed that belief?
Corruption is pervasive in China...................
On the plus side, it was build well enough that it didn't break apart on the way down. :-)
Three Gorges video
some speculated that the enormous weight of the water caused the fault slip that caused the Japanese tsunami.
Who’s maintaining that thing? The California Dept. of Water Resources?
Made in China?
Seems Biblical, only with Christians instead of Jews...
Plague on the pigs.
Plague on the Markets, with tariffs.
Plague on the People with Covid 19
“how highs the water mamma?”
If this dam fails it will be China’s version of Chernobyl and may kick-start a revolution. As was already noted it will be a testament to communist social engineering, ineptitude, and outright disregard for human life over the power and perception of the State
Boy, 2020 is the year that just keeps on giving, isn’t it?
Now you can hold on steady
And try to be ready
But everybodys gonna get wet.
Dont think it wont happen
Just because it hasnt happened yet.
Mao would approve.
