Anyone can imagine the effects on ... the people if the dam failed.

Walter Cronkite’s Death is a Time Marker for Cataclysmic Events Soon to Follow...China's Dam will break with 333 days of the death of Walter Cronkite

This feels like the plot to a disaster movie - power mad elite build worlds largest dam, ignoring the concerns of the world scientific community before watching on as the dam bursts killing millions. Is Roland Emmerich reading this?!
Great post. Let's hope the dam is strong enough to last until it's dismantled.

When talking about tides it is important to note that they are not produced so much by the force of gravity but by the gravity gradient. What produces tidal effects is the fact that the force of the moon's gravity on one side of the Earth is greater than the force of its gravity on the opposite side of the earth. This is why high tides occur on opposite sides of the Earth at the same time... BLAH BLAH BLAH
The Sun is extremely massive, but it is an average of 93 million miles (150 million km) from Earth, compared with about 238,866 miles (384,400 km) from here to the Moon. And since the Moon is nearly 400 times closer to our planet, its influence on our oceans, land, or anything else, is twice as strong as the Sun's.

Sure water is all over the Earth (approximately 70% of the surface). But if you read the OP’s posts, you’ll see that the problem is that this is an entirely unnatural distortion of an enormous mass of water. A tremendous amount of weight has/is being displaced. It’s the artificial shift of the mass that causes the problem. The Earth has had billions of years to ‘stabilize’ its lakes, mountains, etc. This dam changes the whole balance of the Earth in a relatively short period of time.
