This "Thing" has been built in an area where there are already fault lines, the weight of the water in the dam will cause more seepage of water into the fault lines and lubricate them which can AND PROBABLY WILL cause huge earthquakes.
There have already been MANY reports of fish dying up and downstream of the dam due to pollution!
The dam is probably causing more damage than we could ever imagine or will ever hear about and it DOESN'T just effect the Chinese but everyone one of us that inhabits this planet.

I feel sorrow when bumping onto posts such as yours.
Its really startling how some people are left 100% brainwashed into the modern reality of things reconong this is all normal and ok...
Guess what! Unfortunately it is not and mankind has been digging its own grave through lack of respect to the fellow Earthlings and the environment.
One such minor lack of respect is demonstrated by the harshness of your post reply to such a good thread by questioningall in quality and information that is also well researched and well presented.
...causing a greater combined (Sun and Moon) gravitational pull...
...A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Sun and the Earth so that the Sun is fully or partially covered. This can only happen during a new moon, when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction as seen from the Earth. At least two and up to five solar eclipses can occur each year on Earth, with between zero and two of them being total eclipses. Total solar eclipses are nevertheless rare at any location because during each eclipse totality exists only along a narrow corridor in the relatively tiny area of the Moon's umbra.
A total solar eclipse is a spectacular natural phenomenon and many people travel to remote locations to observe one. The 1999 total eclipse in Europe helped to increase public awareness of the phenomenon, as illustrated by the number of journeys made specifically to witness the 2005 annular eclipse and the 2006 total eclipse. The most recent solar eclipse occurred on January 26, 2009, and was an annular eclipse. On July 22 2009, the next total solar eclipse will occur....
The key to tides is the varying strength of the Moon's gravitational pull on different parts of the globe. The Moon pulls most on the water nearest to it, creating a high tide bulge of water. On the opposite side of the planet, about 7,926 miles (1,2760 km) away, the Moon's pull is much weaker and the water is left to form another high tide bulge. Low tides are found halfway between the highs. The rotating Earth carries us through these regions of high and low water.
