    China's being flooded - the 3 Gorges Dam is being put to the test, with hundreds already dead in central and southern China.

    Trillions? Hardly. 1.3 Billion people.

    And yes it's devastating, it would be even worse if the Dam wasn't there. It's the largest generator dam in the world of any kind, and is undergoing it's strongest test yet. It's helping to guard the 3 cities of Wuhan, Nanjing and Shanghai from the worst of it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3_Gorges_Dam#Floods.2C_agriculture.2C_industry
