We could have a new disaster on our hands very soon…
The Yangtze River in China is the third-longest river in the world.
400 million people live in its basin, including in major cities like Chongqing, Wuhan, Nanjing and Shanghai.
For thousands of years, it’s provided essential travel, transportation and agriculture to the people of China.
And the Chinese government took on the task of trying to tame the river.
The Three Gorges Dam, finally completed in 2012, is the largest hydroelectric dam in the world. It has a generating capacity that could power the 400 million people that live in the river’s basin.
But of course, with the building of the dam, the environmental consequences were hardly mentioned — the Chinese government isn’t one to be criticized by its people.
Demand for energy is huge in China, and the Chinese government and scientists have pushed the dam to its limits. China’s rush to power its country may outweigh the disastrous results…
Seasonal floods this year in China have left 140 people dead or missing since last month.
And heavy floodwaters have pushed the Three Gorges Dam into uncertain conditions.
Last month, experts were warning of the dam’s ability to hold back floodwaters. And already this past weekend, China blew up one of its other dams to let water through on a different river.
If the Three Gorges Dam fails, we could have a disaster unlike anything the world has ever seen.
The dam’s reservoir holds 9.43 cubic miles of water, powers a third of China’s population and is linked to around a fourth of the country’s agriculture.
Not to mention there are millions of people living in towns and cities along the path of the Yangtze.
But, that’s not all…

Expert Who Predicted 5G Makes Shocking New Prediction
By now you’ve heard the hype about 5G…
CNN says 5G will be “the lifeblood of the new economy.”
The Wall Street Journal declares its impact will be “felt around the world.”
Even President Trump says 5G “will transform the way our citizens will work, learn, communicate, and travel.”
It seems just about everywhere you go these days, you hear about 5G stocks…
Every analyst out there seems to be a self-proclaimed 5G expert, touting the “best 5G stocks for 2020…”
I’m not here to do that.
Instead, as someone who’s been following 5G since the very beginning (I predicted it back in 2011)…
I’m here to share the hard truth about 5G you won’t hear elsewhere.
In short, 5G is NOT the future… in fact, it could soon be made obsolete.
And when that happens, it could be replaced by a much, much bigger new technology…
One that could change how you use the internet for good.

P.S. The biggest fortunes will NOT be made by investing in 5G…
Instead, it’ll be made from this breakthrough new technology.
