of skyscrapers: Scientists say real estate
poses more threat to the Big Apple than
climate change

New York is sinking fast and new research reveals that real estate developers' 'bigger is better' ethos is the cause. A team from the US Geological Survey and the University of Rhode Island found that the weight of the city's giant skyscrapers is causing the five boroughs to sink one-to-two millimeters yearly. The team analyzed the weight of 1,084,954 buildings constructed across a 302-square-mile city, including over 6,000 skyrises - 247 of which are skyscrapers over 150 feet tall.

Uh, no. Wind lifts these buildings so that they literally weigh less than there mass.

Not too far from where I live, New Orleans is also in an area of geological subsidence. Here is a link to a NASA article describing 'subsidence' and buildings slowly going down in the New Orleans area, and the rates of sinking as measured by their instruments. link:

Has Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) expressed his concern that Manhattan Island will "tip over" due to the weight of these buildings. After all, it is much smaller than Wake Island.

Eric Adams will now add that the weight of all of the extra illegals being bussed to NYC will add to NYC's new sinking crisis! The bussing of illegals to NYC from border states must stop immediately to prevent NYC from disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean.

Whelp, bedrock sinking is sorta like islands flipping over due to too many people walking on them - creating abject fear in some democrats/loons who know just about everything - as long as you don't question them too closely. If you question their lunacy then you are racist.

sohhhh, it's like the old question in the Philosophy circles: if a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound? the answer is, obviously "Yes" so let me propose this mega-magnitudinal question: if New York City sinks into New York harbor will anybody miss it or notice it's missing? my answer: "No" in my opinion as a matter of fact, the world would be a better place, in my opinion but considering the number of people who are moving out of NYC it should decrease the gross weight of the island and thus, prevent it from sinking, in my opinion

When you consider that the earths crust is thin, floats on a sea ou molten magma and in fact drifts, cities sinking under their own weight becomes entirely rational. The same effect was used to describe what happened after the glaciers receeded.

The May 22 report cites the company’s handbook for employees, saying that “transgender” rights require that all other employees accept sex-switching claims without any “transphobic” disagreement, complaints, or appeals to science: Under the category “Gender Transition,” Fox’s employee handbook promises that the company is dedicated to “expanding and strengthening” efforts to “sustain a more inclusive work environment.” The Fox employee handbook is posted on Workday,

Mexican authorities on Sunday raised the warning level for the Popocatepetl volcano to one step below red alert as smoke, ash and molten rock spewed into the sky posing risks to aviation and far-flung communities below. The huge volcano that towers above Mexico City is considered one of the most dangerous in the world because some 25 million people live within a 60-mile radius. Sunday's increased alert level - to 'yellow phase three' - comes a day after two Mexico City airports temporarily halted operations due to falling ash, which also forced 11 villages to cancel school sessions.

A good Samaritan, according to the Oxford Learner’s Dictionary is, “a person who gives help and sympathy to people who need it”. This concept goes back to Biblical times, specifically the book of Luke, chapter 10, and the “Parable of the Good Samaritan.” Jesus told the story of a man who was robbed, beaten, and left for dead. A priest and a Levite both saw the beaten man and walked past him, crossing to the other side of the street. But the Samaritan stopped to help the injured man, attending to his wounds, bringing him to an inn, paying the innkeeper to care for him until he was well.

Worried about too much systemic rigging and fraud for a Republican ever to win office again? Good news! The riggers themselves are quietly starting to worry it may happen. Politico ran a story on Friday, and I must say, the title quickened my pulse. Tellingly titled, “Hurricane Trump Is Coming — And Washington Hasn’t Bothered to Prepare,” the story ran with the subhead, “After 2020, reformers vowed to erect guardrails against a rogue chief executive. They ran into a wall of complacency, partisanship and distraction.” As if Leftists would have done a single thing to curtail executive overreach while they held office. Puh-lease.

It consumed the nation for years and inflicted untold harm. None of them had the decency to volunteer the truth.
