China dam project may tilt Earth on its axis

Yung Chang, the director of new documentary, entitled Up the Yangtze, about the Three Gorges Dam project in China, was interviewed on NPR’s Talk of the Nation this afternoon, and he said that some scientist are speculating that the weight of the concentrated water from this project, which could be as deep as a 99-story building, may prove to be so great that it might actually tilt the Earth on it’s axis slightly. How fucking nuts is that?!
