    1.) all the countries around it is making it sink. 2.)they want to take over and people listen to them not you listening to them. 3.)they jump over things that are important but they just don't care about it so they just jump over the fact that there country is on the line while they just dont care.

    Zinn: 1.Jakarta is vulnerable to sinking because the city lies on a low flat basin at the mouth of a river. Other factors that help the issue is the rising of sea levels and flooding. 2. A flood that happened in 2007 that breached the existing seawall caught the governments attention and they decided they needed to take action. Their first part of their plan is to strengthen the existing wall to Jakarta. 3. The biggest hurdle they face is whether or not they can afford the cost. The author is impressed that the government joined in to help with the problem.

    1. the resin its sinking is because the sea level is rising and its rising 6 inches on average and the city was built on a low surface 40 percent of the city is under water. 2.they want them to take action because they need a giant wall to protect them from the water 3.they cant even drive cars or anything they have to row boats down the street. because the government made a really good idea

    1. Jakarta is vulnerable to sinking because it is located in the northwest coast of the Java Sea and it also lies on a low flat basin at the mouth of the Ciliwung River on the Jakarta Bay making Jakarta get flooded because of the rising sea level. 2. The government wanted to help the city not drown in water so they are trying to strengthen the existing sea wall around the northern part of the city. 3.The biggest issue of course is whether the country can afford the cost, which is expected to be about $40 billion USD over 20 years. Also there is still the technical challenge of gathering the large amount of soil that will be required to build the islands. Not only that but the cities are very populated. Critical thinking: I think the biggest hurdle/problem is the amount of money they will need to get or spend because they cannot afford the cost. -Sierra Lee

    1) Jakarta is vulnerable to sinking because it lies on a low flat basin at the mouth of the Ciliwung River on the Jakarta Bay. Its factors are the tons of flooding and that 40% of the city lies below sea level and is sinking by as much as six inches, annually. 2) A flood that happened caught governments attention. The existing seawall was breached. Their plan was to strengthen the existing wall to Jakarta. 3) Some of the hurdles they face are whether or not the government can afford this cost. They will need lots of things like pipes and such that can be very pricey. The author is impressed because he didn't think the government was actually going to pitch in an help.

    1---- They are vulnerable to sinking because sea levels are rising and the subsidence is lowering annually. 2---- strengthen the existing sea wall around the northern part of the city. 3--- They don't know if they can afford it all. Also there are 17 artificial islands that are designed to shield the city from the rising sea levels.

    PAUL KELLIKER........... the reason Jakarta might sink in 2030 is because they are lower then sea level and the sea level keeps on rising and if it continues at this rate then
