Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Three Gorges Dam Could Collapse

Posted by feww on July 22, 2010

HOW LONG WILL SHE HOLD?

Image of the Day:

Three Gorges Dam in Yichang, Hubei Province central China, July 19, 2010.


The water influx into the Three Gorges Reservoir reached 58,000 steres [cubic meters, m³] per second on Monday morning, setting a new record in this year’s flood season. Engineers will raise the rate of water outflux to 40,000 steres per second from 10 a.m. on Monday to face the biggest flood peak since the dam was established. (Xinhua/Zheng Jiayu).

In Murphy’s law has no time vector! Fire-Earth said:

FEWW Amendment to Murphy’s Law:
If more things can go wrong they will go wrong about now!

… in the world’s major cities, hydroelectric dams, nuclear power plants, oil rigs, production and processing facilities, powerlines …

A name for this?
Blog Moderators call this phenomenon Secondary Interlude to Human-Induced Planetary Antiphase.

Previous Examples in recent times?
Repeated flooding in Manila, Philippines.

Examples to watch for in the Near future?
Watch out for disintegration or collapse of Cities, large-scale structures, bridges, tunnels, power plants…, e.g., collapse of China’s Three Gorges Dam in the next two to three years.

Other Examples?
More examples would be posted after the Moderators have evaluated the structures, geographical regions  and physical locations.

Causes?
Earthquakes, Storms, Snowstorms, Extreme Rain Events (ERE), Drought and Deluge, Fatigue … Antiphase and all other human-induced and human-enhanced factors.

China haze, temperature inversion, poor air quality

Beijing Shrouded in Brown Haze

Coal-fired Power Plants and Essential Clean Air are Diametrically Opposite to Each Other


Haze blanketed Beijing, China, on January 18, 2010, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image. The entirely image is brown, as if covered by a thin film. The image also hints at a contributing factor to the poor air quality: a temperature inversion, contributing to the buildup of pollutants.

(MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite, January 18, 2010. The gray-brown haze extends from Beijing to the South China Sea from north to south and from Korea to central China from east to west (shown in the large image). This image shows the densely populated and industrialized North China Plain between Beijing and the Yangtze River, where the haze is so dense that it completely obscures the ground.
