read it and wow... great thread.
I will pick up on a the official posters comments...
1- The dam will break by being caused by an eclipse... very, farfetched, even if some indian dude predicted a death and this, it's very
2- Sediments building up at the bottom of the damn causing cracks... yes this is a well known problem and can be a big problem especially if the Dam
is not designed to eliviate this nor built right with the right materials.
3- Landslides... yes, very possible and can cause even more problems and an increase in sediments and high waves. The land has never had water being
at that levels for probably no more than a short period of time maximum throughout history.
4- Climate change – Absolutely true. Nature has a way of supplying and changing slowly the climate conditions of areas around the planet. Altering
the water levels can have a drastic effect on the climate, not just in water levels but when a flood do happen, sediment is left over and is prime
fertilising land where nutrients are left over.
5- Causing earthquakes - Not entirely proven but should not be dismissed either. The immense water pressure near a fault line is far more greater
mass than a mega city. So it is plausible and at the very least will not help matters.
Humans can only mess with nature so much, look at the Mississippi river and how they tried to channel that? It failed and the whole thing flooded
completely being one of the biggest disasters in the 20th century costing billions of dollers. This however is completely different.
If this thing breaks, which it could very well do... then boy i'd love to see a camera of all that water coming down the valley. Although for the 400
million chinease out there... this is not good. Potentially the biggest human man made disaster ever and sadly it could take something like this to
make us finally realise that we cannot play god all the time when it comes to nature.
