Is the Three Gorges Dam About to Collapse?
There has been a lot of talk about this lately and I just found this screen grab from someone who had been following the live stream camera of the dam. They're claiming that the dam is beginning to fall apart.

I know everyone hates China, but I don't wish for this to happen. If/when this thing totally fails the fallout will be absolutely catastrophic. There are many nuclear power plants downstream from this dam. Or so I've heard.

What's also strange is that despite this dam beginning to fail, the Chinese aren't ordering any evacuations or anything. Its like they intend to let millions of their own people drown or something.



I decided to go ahead and add this story to this thread. 90 nuclear scientists have allegedly walked off the job in China. These guys worked for a nuclear energy safety commission of some sort.

Investment Watch Blog

quote:

The State Council, China’s Cabinet, has sent an investigative team with other government agencies to look into the recent resignation of over 90 nuclear security scientists at an institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the academy said on Tuesday.

The mystery surrounding the resignation of half of the employees in that research institute became one of the most talked-about topics in China.
The team consists of officials from the State Council’s general office, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the CAS and other departments. It will head to Hefei, Anhui province, to thoroughly investigate the situation, the academy said.

The recent resignation of over 90 nuclear security scientists at the academy’s Institute of Nuclear Energy Safety Technology has ignited public speculation on institutional bureaucracy, employee poaching and inadequate financial support for young scientific talent.

Don’t know, but I bet China is about to sacrifice 10s of thousands of Chinese worker’s lives to get it fixed. I’d hate to be any person around that project, the Chinese government doesn’t care about humanity.

Well, it was made in China. Wasn't going to last that long.

Assumptions being made on the internet by inexperienced internet experts that make catastrophic conclusions based on YouTube video noises. What is there NOT to believe.

This is like a slow motion trainwreck. I've heard it's in the millions the number of people that may be affected by this if it fails. And if there truly are like 60 power plants downstream from that dam the fallout could be really, really bad.

That dam should have never been built. I hope it comes crumbling down, I feel bad for the people some but they are not fighting back against a completely oppressive regime. By not fighting back they are endorsing it. They chose which side they are on by their inaction.

Frick China, China are a-hole.

Is it an "assumption" to see a large part of the dam break off and head downstream in real time? That's what he's claiming. I don't know how anyone could possibly mistake that for something else. The dam is either falling apart or it isn't.

And they aren't noises. The guy watched a piece of the dam break apart and he circled it in red. It's an object, not a sound.

That video of the Internet cafe being flooded while people just casually play video games is about as China as you can get

You know not of what you speak. Some experts have said the damn could fail. The dam has actually shifted, visible from satellite pictures. This dam has had problems for a couple of years now at least!

You're just not educated on the subject, says Lebron James.

How many nuclear facilities will be flooded if that thing goes?

This could be a bigger problem than just a China thing.
