Lots of room still available in Lujiazui for more towers, too. Can't wait to see what it will look like in another 10 years.

don't worry, the river may be drying faster than land sinking.

@joking

don't worry too much, it's a debatable topic on the land sinking theory.
i.e. global warming and pollution which dry up uprivers or lakes can make river level lower, so it makes land sinking a minor issue (if land keeps sinking)

what kind of the explanation is that? Because of the global warming the ice cap in north pole will smelt. Kiss good bye to Shanghai.

true. that might be another factor to make us less worry on the land sinking.

What I want to say is there are many factors, positive or negative. Even assume Shanghai is sinking 5mm per year, keep other vaiables unchanged, it may take 400 years to cause the city flooding (2m). I don't even know if Shanghai still exists in the current position after 400 years.

Shanghai is not sinking, Shanghai is settling. This is caused by fast urbanisation. In the 30s-50s some guys forecasted that NY would become an underwater city within the end of the 20th century too.

The end of the world / eschatologic theories is a very hot fetish in some cultures. That's why some people accept any gossip that leads to that scenario so easily. Of course you can keep believing in these pseudo-cientific theories about sinking cities, global warming, UFOs, whatever. It's up to you. But please don't derail the thread. I'll delete the off topic posts later, including this one.
