WTF?? China's Three Gorges Dam Is About To Slow The Rotation Of The Earth
The Myth: The filling of the reservoir behind Three Gorges Dam in China changed the rotation of the Earth.

The Evidence: Three Gorges Dam, China crosses the Yangtze River in Hubei province,

Raising 39 trillion kilograms of water 175 meters above sea level will increase the Earth’s moment of inertia and thus slow its rotation. However, the effect would extremely small. NASA scientists calculated that shift of such as mass would increase the length of day by only 0.06 microseconds and make the Earth only very slightly more round in the middle and flat on the top. It would shift the pole position by about two centimeters (0.8 inch). Note that a shift in any object’s mass on the Earth relative to its axis of rotation will change its moment of inertia, although most shifts are too small to be measured (but they can be calculated).

very cool!

So I suppose unless we start building things like this all over, this one doesn't have too much of an affect?

Wonder what I'm going to do with an extra .06 microseconds per day?
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

Yes, they fill it gradually over time. Now think what the effect would be if the dam is SUDDENLY emptied (i.e dam break, EQ ect)

Re: WTF?? China's Three Gorges Dam Is About To Slow The Rotation Of The Earth
A thought just occurred to me:
Someone should calculate the total weight of all human built objects (currently as well as through our history) such as, cement from streets, buildings, statues, metal for cars, planes tanks buildings.
I wonder what influence it has had to our planet over time, since I'm sure the weight is not equally spread out over the planet.
Hell I wonder about the effects from humans manipulating the earth itself by creating and clearing mountains, rerouting and damming water flows etc...

It would be interesting to see if we have affected out time/rotation in some of the same ways as the Chinese apparently have.

It would be like a rubber band effect on the earth rotation..can you say global earthquakes?

Impossible. The earth has exactly the same amount of water as it always had. The same amount. It only changes form, from solid, liquid, or gas.

And yet the climate change deniers constantly use the "well the earth is just too damn big for us to have an effect on it".

Ha.

Changing the earth's rotation speed effect enough for ya?

It's not about volume or mass, it's about where that volume and mass is distributed. Watch most carnival rides, or just spin around in a circle yourself with your arms outstretched then bring them in, as a previous poster mentioned.

Happens with many many things in our daily lives in fact..

Maybe China's dam will offset the increase of rotation that the huge EQ in Indonesia caused...

Well thank you China, you just made my workday longer! You can slow the Earth's rotation but you can't manufacture non-toxic products?

What's up with that? Come on now, what's up with that? I thought you folks were cool man, you want me to be a good customer and you kill me. What's up with that?

That coffin you made me is radioactive and now I'm a mutant zombie, what's up with that? Am I awake is this right? I want to be happy and alive.

Damn Chinese... Owing the world with crap products isn't enough, then they also slow the Earth's rotation.

i'm sure it didn't help things..
and is very condusive to what is going on now as far as the ongoing project of the reptoids and their lackies to start a chain reaction that will destroy civilization around the planet..
