Temperatures in China will rise significantly in coming decades and
water shortages will worsen, state media has reported, citing the
government's first national assessment of global climate change.

"Greenhouse gases released due to human activity are leading to
ever more serious problems in terms of climate change," the
Ministry of Science and Technology said in a statement.

"Global climate change has an impact on the nation's ability to
develop further," said the ministry, one of 12 government depart-
ments that prepared the report.

By the middle of the century, the annual average temperature in
China will rise by as much as 3.3 degrees Celsius (more than five
degrees fahrenheit), and by 2100 it could soar by as much as six
degrees Celsius, according to the news service.


As the threat of Climate Change/Global Warming becomes ever
clearer by the general populace, and is becoming unignorable
by the world governments, one of the worlds largest polluters
is coming to terms with the facts.

I flew into Beijing and other Cities in China. If the Chinese people could experience that, like a few lucky ones get to do, they would demand change from their peoples government.

My lungs ached there and I wanted the plane to go up again. When flying back to Canada and landing in Vancouver (which I thought was polluted), seeing the clean air was a shock.

I am glad they have started to recognise the problems they are helping to cause.

Good find.

Please do keep us updated as more info comes available, or the report is translated.

...Ie., The article didn't really address desertification - one of the biggest problems China faces.

Thanks, sofi
