    Australia burning to the ground? You do realize Australia is a very hot place and fires are common, in fact a lot of trees require fire, fire is part of their life cycle. And it wasn't even that biggest fire. Too many people watch the media hype things up and then fall for the hype, the media does this because it brings in clicks and that's the only reason, but then they don't call you sheeple for no reason.

    I’m from Beijing and left the city to us in 2001 and I have never heard or seen this “underground city” ... there were propaganda movies though where the Chinese citizens dug underground tunnels to fight the Japanese invasion. That’s the only underground thing I’ve ever heard that might be close to what this video is talking about

  • alex02
    alex0217 ditë më parë

    This video I guess is based on the news of Beijing getting rid of illegal subleasing and renting at the end of 2019. There are 25 million people living in urban Beijing, including 7 million temporary workers. The landlords took advantage of the situation and divided the rooms into tiny cubes for subleasing and renting, and created a big potential safety hazard such as carbon monoxide poisoning in the winter when the cubes were heated by old style coal stoves. But the new polity backfired When thousands of temporary workers homeless and the online social media overwhelmingly condemned the city for such reckless action against the low-income population. Main stream media followed up the news and many interviewed the ghettos, also called the “rat tribes”. Some reporter found one such rat tribe in an underground tunnel and it became a breaking news. I don’t think there is much underground city left in Beijing. The city has been rebuilt multiple times with newer high rises and subways during the last 40 years. The city population grew six folds from 4 millions in 1980 to 25 millions in 2019. The city demolished almost all the old land marks in residential and commercial areas. I would imagine that the old underground tunnels are also demolished altogether. The unground city located in the government quarter, however remain a myth.

    Duck and cover is actually extremely efficient survival technique. People are forgetting that most people are not in the fireball region, but further away. With any bomb most people will be in the region where pressure wave and heat radiation are the killers. Duck will dramatically help with the first and cover with the latter. Ie compare how many people are within ~1km radius vs those between 1-20km from epicenter.
