    I been watching this again this year.
    It is flood season again in China and seems the water levels are the highest seen in decades, perhaps centuries.
    I have not heard how the damn is doing or the Yangtze or Yellow Rivers either.
    But it can't be good thou
    When every problem looks like a nail and every answer looks like a hammer, then we have a big problem here in our times.

    That was hard to watch and in fact I could not watch any more then a couple minutes.
    I am sure there were people caught on camera that were or did drown
    Germany too has had many valuable lives lost due to massive flooding.

    Mother Nature sure seems to be angry. Maybe if man left her alone she would calm down
    Two of the greatest qualities
    to have in live are:

    PATIENCE
    and
    WISDOM

    Mankind has the unfortunate habit of thinking he can make everything better.

    Though that is true of some things some are above the thought process of men.

    It amazes me that we have a nuclear bomb. My thought is "How did they know the fission would not continue beyond the chamber to all matter in the universe, or just on the earth"?

    Same for the current virus problem.

    Development by man has drastically altered the runoff speeds and the scope of absorption in many areas, deforestation and the lack of buffers for wind and rain have altered the patterns of all things related to moisture transference from the atmosphere to terra.
    We saw it in the Midwest floods 20 years ago here.
    Coupled with changing steering stream patterns have made for some natural disasters like those decades and centuries ago
    It seems like a reverse of the dust bowl days in the plains of the USA 100 or so years ago.
