100 of China’s 660 cities to run out of water


Serious pollution levels to rise: Zhang Lijun, vice-minister of
the main environmental agency, recently said China’s already serious
pollution levels could increase “four to five times” over the next 15
years based on current economic growth patterns. The problem will
intensify as the population moves from its present 1.3 billion to peak
at 1.6 billion about 2030.
