Q: Is your city sinking in China?

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-News/2016/0625/Why-Beijing-and-45-other-cities-in-China-are-sinking

 

 

The cities are sinking because of water depletion under ground, how about oil fracking under ground, how about water displacement causing tectonic plates to move more often.

 

I'm sure the scientists will make predictions and scare the hell out of us and shake us down for money, and then apologize and do the same thing again when they figure out the mistakes they start preaching and come up with another theory.

 

Should be an interesting example of intelligensia versus dimwits to watch again.

When your overdue for an earthquake, this is a minor problem, but after a quake maybe the homeless sidewalk shitters will all be dead, one problem solved.

Mine isn't sinking! Not that we couldn't afford a bit lower altitude from current 18k m.

We can also rain endlessly! At the moment.

Some areas of Foshan are definitely sinking, but then the city is built on a swamp, what can you expect?

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
