Major flooding in China

Spare a thought for the people, if you have a god pray for them!  Jo Nova does a roundup of reports on major flooding after prolonged rain, mudslides, and most alarming of all, renewed concerns about the integrity of the Three Gorges Dam.

Don’t believe official reports, look at the pictures (Jo warns they could be other floods) and bear in mind that some seismologists have always predicted a catastrophe at the Three Gorges Dam.

  1. And the media is reporting that this is all to do with climate change:

    “The devastating floods that we have seen are consistent with an increase in extreme weather events due to climate change,” said Liu Junyan, a Greenpeace East Asia campaigner.

    I was always told that climate change caused lack of rain. But there you go.

    There has always been major flooding in China that is why they built the Three Gorges Dam. However probably not in the lifetime of the Chinese Greenie

    Problems with the TGD even surfaced on Sunrise this morning.

    China’s Sorrow may be about to make a comeback.

    But wait!
    There’s more.
    Harry Chen has been documenting locust plagues in the bits which haven’t suffered flood, fire, hail or tornadoes.

    9 more days of rain and it will be official: God is pissed with China.

    Is that the massive project on the upper reaches of the Mekong River system? When visiting Cambodia a few years back I remember our guide talking the plans China has for the region with a total 7 or massive structures that would effectively change the whole river system causing distress to whole lower reaches of the delta and the economy that runs on it.

    This is on the Yangtze in Hubei provice, lefty.

    When all that farm land is under water the Chinese might need barley to feed the livestock and meat on the table.

    The Chinese “experts” are well aware of what would happen if they dam the Mekong in several places, particularly in the “wiggly bits” in hill county inside the Chinese border.

    It will, over the course of a couple of decades, at most, destroy the ENTIRE economy and ecology of the Mekong delta, home to millions of pesky Vietnamese. It would also radically alter large sections of agriculture in what is now, Chinese-run Cambodia, which have operated with the annual alternation between “dry” and REALLY WET, for ages. There’s a reason many rural structures are built in “sticks”. In the “dry” there is shade and food storage / chicken coops etc. under the house. When it RAINS, you can sit on the porch and catch fish. Similar situations exist along several rivers in Burma / Myanmar, as well.

    Given that the Mekong rises in the Himalayas in Tibet, runs through China and then forms borders and /or runs through Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and finally Vietnam, how could the Chinese government resist the attraction of being able to control the waters, and thus the economies and therefore the politics of all those places?

    The last time the Chinese “helped” the Khmers like this was 1975-1979. Their KR buddies had a mega-plan to vastly increase agricultural output, so they had tens of thousands of “undesirables” out in the countryside digging irrigation channels by hand, usually without any acknowledgement of terrain, soil-type or contours. These dodgy ditches made nifty mass grave, though.

    AGW alarmists like to have it both ways – it causes floods and droughts!

    It’s as if the CCP Gangsters are a plague upon the planet.

    Where is Green Pieces (of your money) protesting CCP dams, coal fired power stations, cruelty to animals…

    It will give China tremendous leverage because it has not signed up to any agreements regarding water resources. This report demonstrates how rapidly China is taking control.

    The Chinese people are as much victims of their government as the rest of us. Lately placated by wealth, still duped with propaganda, and as always considered expendable by a government effecting grandiose visions through petty rivalries and patronage.

    Yes. the constant lying, cheating and raging is an essential artifact of Communism, now it has become normal to most of their people to carry on like this.

    God will punish then for their evil treatment of other people; the ‘smoke will be seen a far off’.

    I would laugh my arts off if the three gorges dam goes. I’m praying. And it ain’t for saving anyone. Every one of those suckers holds collective guilt for the animalistic filth that are the government there. For the virus alone as well as every other IP theft and racist persecution of minorities. My only regret is that it would then not be there for the Americans to bust during a conflict.

    Are there some people who are saying we should pray for the Chinese because they have some bad floods? I have noted the request but it would be better directed to someone who cares. The Chinese lost me a few months ago when they allowed their deadly virus to escape to the rest of the world and do so much damage to lives and economies that it will take generations for the innocent to recover. So if a million or two or more Chinese are going through a bad time because of their floods I can tell them that karma is often a good thing
    so they should direct their pleas to their wonderful caring government in Beijing. Good luck with that project.

    There is something to that because the Chinese population is increasingly xenophobic and pathologically nationalistic(there is a healthy nationalism!). So while I do not like blaming a population for the behavior of their leaders when I see evidence of so much active support for the leaders stuff ’em the population is the enemy.

    Oh, both “droughts” and “flooding rains” – well, we’ve already had our climate change then. AND we survived.

    It could well be God’s Wrath on China.
    An F5 of plague, pestilence, fire, flood, and famine.

    My only regret is that it would then not be there for the Americans to bust during a conflict.

    My understanding is that the US has been experimenting with kinetic energy weapons. (Rods From God.) The original plan was orbiting stations just dropping the rod (20 ft long/1 foot diameter tungsten.) from orbit, but that was considered too expensive. Then someone got the idea of putting a couple of scramjet type engines on the rod, dropping it from an aircraft, and using the engines to get the speed up to mach 12 and driving it into the target.
    One of these should be enough to knock that dodgy dam over.
