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.

@paul_furber @paulmuaddib61

The origin story. The unseen energetic burden of this dam is beyond the water we can see

“Such a collapse would be disastrous if it happened during the flood season,” Luo Huilin, deputy secretary-general of the Jingzhou city government in central China’s Hubei province, was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

What happens if/when the dam breaks?

A chilling yet comprehensive analysis

Update: July 11
Nanging River Park. 2/3 under water.


Three Gorges Dam has done its best, please stop accusing it.

“The Three Gorges Dam is too difficult this time! This time the Three Gorges Dam is also helpless! The 52 rivers in 8 provinces have flooded above the warning level! The people of Hubei are really difficult this year......
The epidemic has closed the house for a few months.

More than half of them died after the water receded in a few days, not to mention aquaculture.”
#NATURE cannot be tamed

Humans are nature. We are wild. The #ThreeGorgesDam represents the removal of egoic intention and superiority.

Barriers put up are being torn down.

We are all connected. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

#floodgates #3GD #threegorgesdam

You are witnessing the systematic destruction of the #YangtzeRiver watershed. What is in this area?


8% of the worlds population

Let’s put these dam discharge numbers into some context.

Discharge in cubic meters per second.

#ThreeGorgesDam 55,000 m3/s

#Mississippi 16,790 m3/s

#NiagraFalls 6,400 m3/s

#Nile 2,830 m3/s
#chongqing adds 800 MILLION TONNES of UNTREATED waste water to the #YangtzeRiver

WHEN the #ThreeGorgesDam BREAKS it will release BILLIONS of tonnes of toxic, stagnant effluent in a 70 meter high #tsunami wave travelling at 100km/h

Computer simulation of what happens WHEN the #ThreeGorgesDam breaks


August is historically the wettest month of China’s wet season.

This is is already the situation in July

The reservoir side is rarely shown.

Here is a video of the rubbish collection.

Note the height of the boats against the dam.

What is the height of the Blue & White boat?

Whatever your view on China is at the moment, the people who have created this are not the people who bear it’s consequences.

These floods affect people who have lived a life of hardship most are unable to relate to.

No one will save them.

Lets put the #YangtzeRiverEconomy into context

Yangtze River economic belt GDP 37.3 trillion Yuan

45.3% of China’s total economic output in 2017

Hmmmmm think it might be A LOT more than that

@public_juan Thoughts?

Fenghuang, praised as "the most beautiful town in China", renowned for its natural beauty, rich history, colourful ethnic customs & photogenic night scenery.

Its moments away from going under.

Humanity is losing so much in China right now.


The beginning of China’s wettest month starts now.

May all those whose lives are lost this month have a swift and graceful transition to their soul plane and feel infinite love.

#August1st #weather #universalcare
“Why should we always be the chosen ones to be sacrificed for the rest of China,” Anhui people “we were beggars before , we objected to have our homes being flooded” Sorry. Under China’s Regime, can’t object. Rise up, choose a better one.

The strata of #Sichuan continues to disintegrate.

Soon under an ocean of water.

Sichuan, the sunken city

Debris has serious impact on structures

A ships creates enough resistance to remove a bridge

#sichuan soon to be a lost city


Pay attention to the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, the flood has flooded to the foot of Leshan Giant Buddha!

This wave of floods in #Sichuan is not small. What happened in the real upper reaches of the #Yangtze River, Sichuan #MinjiangRiver, #DaduRiver and other rivers have #flooded, the real test of the #ThreeGorgesDam is coming!

The farmers of China are not the CCP.

The former pay the price, as always.

My heart breaks for their reality.


The ferocity of this #flood is beyond comprehension

Water level >5 meters

Time <24 hours

for context and balance of the current situation.

Mountainous areas don’t usually flood.

And any other agenda driven hashtag that gets this situation seen.

Because the #MSM don’t report #news
