According to a report released on Tuesday by China, they are expecing "more droughts, floods and other extreme weather." The data comes forth as China suffers the worst drought they have experienced in 50 years. This report, which is based on data from 1994, is part of China's commitment to the "U.N. Framework Convetion on Climate Change." Meanwhile, their energy consumption is expected to double and their need and use of natural resources will continue to grow.

"It (global warming) affects food security, education, child and maternal mortality and the basic biological systems on our planet and if action is not taken today we are seriously endangering our future livelihood," UNDP China Representative Khalid Malik told a news conference.

"Meanwhile, energy consumption is expected to double, the use of natural resources will continue to grow and this puts China in an extremely vulnerable position as it aims to ensure sustainability."

China, whose cities are choked by car exhaust, construction dust and emissions from coal-burning factories, has issued a series of policies aimed at directing and standardizing energy conservation.

The report concludes that climate change will affect their food production by 2050 resulting in a 10 % reduction of crop yield, and because of melting glaciers and the rise in the oceans, it will also affect their supplies of fresh water.

China did approve the Kyoto climate change treaty, but they are exempt to cut carbon dioxide emissions until 2012

A rise in the oceans' levels will also increase seismic and volcano activity which will affect life in their cities.

I sure hope that they don't blame the US, just because G. Brish refused to sign the Kyoto Accords or because the gov runs such projects like HAARP and Phoenix. In the atmosphere of Terrorism that the continuing administration has fostered it is too easy for potential enemies to jump to the wrong conclusions

And maybe initiate mistaken retaliation

Okay.....so are you saying Russia never had a program to control weather?... If i remember they were proclaiming they could some years back.....and France of course never had atomic tests inside volcanos in the pacific as late as the 1990s.....and of course neither France, Russia, China, NK or any other country have anything to do with " fostering terrorism"......

This diatrabe of yours, first is out of context with this thread, second...it shows your contempt against the States, for whatever reson, and your ignorance that other countries are as much, or more, responsible for terrorism than the U.S.

The volcano activity will force Godzilla to evacuate the ocean and overtake China in order to survive.
