    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. Jakarta is vulnerable to sinking because of its rising sea level and the city lies on a low flat basin. 2. The government spurred to take action because they want to save the city from drowning and their plan is to first strengthen the existing sea wall. 3. Some of the hurtles they will face is getting the money and the relocation of residents. Critical thinking challenge The biggest hurtle they will face is the money because it is around 4 billion dollors and they have to move the residents. - Madelyn Swanson

    1~ The reason Jakarta vulnerale to sinking is the flooding ,sea level rising ,subsidence decreasing,proliferation of borehole. 2~ The city is slowly sinking which caused the government to take action. They came up with strengthening the existing sea wall around the northern part of the city. 3~The cost is too high for the government, he was shocked at the government wanting to come in on the action

    1. the city was built on a low basin 2. the city is slowly sinking 3. it would cost a lot of money and it would be to find the right amount of soil needed

    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.
