Plan for China’s Water Crisis Spurs Concern – NYTimes.com.

Plan for China’s water crisis spurs concern. North China is dying. A chronic drought is ravaging farmland. The Gobi Desert is inching south. The Yellow River, the so-called birthplace of Chinese civilization, is so polluted it can no longer supply drinking water. The rapid growth of megacities has drained underground aquifers that took millenniums to fill. New York Times [Registration Required]
