Lendo o livro 📖 "Memoirs of Nikita Khrushchev" uma cena chamou-me atenção. ⬇️
@38bitcoinheiro @alan_schramm @gustavoramos @habinsur Diante de uma superpotência, Nikita Khrushchev estava longe de ser intimidante.

Os historiadores têm legitimamente sugerido que ele sobreviveu aos expurgos paranoicos de Josef Stalin porque, com 1.63 de altura, ele era o único homem com menos de 1.70 ⬇️
@38bitcoinheiro @alan_schramm @gustavoramos @habinsur - do campo de visão de Josef Stalin. Enquanto milhares de outros membros foram recebidos com uma bala no pescoço, #Khrushchev marchou para longe ileso por nenhum mérito próprio.

Mas talvez sua maior deficiência fosse sua total incapacidade de nadar. ⬇️‍

Rivers carry the living impressions of civilisations that have settled on their banks since the dawn of time, are home for unique flora and fauna. How can we better understand and protect them? #Vigilife has launched the #30sentinelrivers program with #eDNA. A thread 1/n ImageImage
By building an international network of partners and sharing #eDNA know-how, #Vigilife is establishing long term #monitoring programs, which will become a precious tool for safeguarding freshwater biodiversity.
1. The #Amazon: born out of the drying up of an inland sea, I am one of the longest rivers in the world. Together with my tributaries, I contain nearly 20% of the #biodiversity of all the rivers on earth and play an essential role in the global water cycle. Image

#China #Yangtze #Hunan #enviorment #fishing

A total 10-year fishing ban now applies in the pivotal waters of the Yangtze, China's longest river, starting on Friday, according to the central government strategy. Image
Urbanization and shipping along the Yangtze River have resulted in the decrease or loss of marine ecosystems for decades. According to an expert, synthetic fertilizers and pesticides have also contributed to the river's contamination.
Also situated in the middle reaches of the river, Hunan Province closed and demolished all 39 illegal wharves along the mainstream Yangtze River while restoring the ecological ecosystem there. About 1,300 hectares of forest have also been planted by the province along the river.

🚨Worried about the world's biggest dam #ThreeGorgesDam failing?

Take a look upstream at China's 2nd largest dam #XiluoduDam 😲#三峡大坝

This is a 2020 image and it looks like work has taken place in an attempt to buttress it.

#ThreeGorgesDamRisks… Image
This thing is HUGE! At around 940 ft high and 700m wide, it holds back 12,670,000,000 cubic metres of water in a 200 km long reservoir.

(Note: This image looks like CGI, but gives a good sense of scale) #Chinaflooding

China has a long history of corruption leading to poor construction standards and failure of capital projects.

The consistency and accurate pouring of concrete should be tightly controlled in such projects. This site looks to be shoddy, dirty and unkempt #XiluoduDam Image

Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

An interesting analysis of the situation.

#msm not covering this.

Catastrophic crisis brewing in China. The three gorges dam on verge of collapse. Rain expected for another 7-10 days.

400 million at risk.
