[Water] Yellow River Blues

by UNEP TUNZA | 22-01-2013 09:38 Comments 33 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



The sixth longest in the world, the Yellow River and its basin have been associated with China's prosperity for thousands of years. In recent decades, rapid economic development has increased the river's pollution and sediment levels, posing major challenges in managing its water for agriculture, industry, power generation and domestic uses. A new study cautions that climate change can reduce the volume of water, adding pressure on all sectors to share water more efficiently.

    Unfortunately I can't view the video in China, but I do agree that this is a very large issue. Since agriculture is the base of any civilization, it's possible that pollution of the Huang He could have serious consequences on Chinese society... :( Yet, China's government is still pushing for economic development at any cost. I hope they'll realize how much a bad enviornment can affect the country's pace of development and its people.

    When we study history, we notice that all ancient civilisations came up on river banks- rivers are the life lines that have supported us for years and unless we realise their importance, we will perish.

    While people living in urban city enjoy improved material life, many people living rely on rivers, mountains are suffered from too rapid environmental challenge caused by industrial development done to boost the economy. That's really sad :-(
