Enviroment of China: Challenges and Hope

One of the most serious side effects of China’s unprecedented growth is the rapid degeneration of her environment, as it was recently covered by the NYT’s special series Choking on Growth.

James Fallows has a long feature article in the June issue of the Atlantic entitled “China’s Silver Lining,why soggy skies over Beijing represent the world’s great environmental opportunity.” The gist of it is that “China’s environmental situation is disastrous. And it is improving. Everyone knows about the first part. The second part if important too. ” The article is not available online yet and we will provide a link when it’s up.

I would also recommend readers who concerned on this issue checking out this excellent bilingual website China Dialogue.

As a side note: for people who plan to travel to Beijing, WSJ’s take on the World’s best Chinese food.

    It is one of the biggest challenge Chinese people and government need solve.

    I would suggest the western politicians who call for a boycott
    Olympic should go to China and talk to people and government and make some constructive suggestions even financial and technological help about the China’s environmental situation which would improve the life of everyone instead of a boycott which dose not achieve anything.

    I’m definitely interested in the environmental parts… but the most valuable part of this is possibly the WSJ link to restaurants in Beijing!
