110 Chinese cities face serious water shortage

Japan Today:

China's Environmental Crisis"Some 110 Chinese cities face a serious shortage of water, especially those in the drought-stricken north, and the scarcity will get worse as China's population increases to 1.6 billion people by 2030, state media reported Monday."

China always says that the West should not judge Human Rights in China by their values. The Chinese say they face unique problems that makes them have choose the welfare of the whole over the welfare of the individual.

Well if you line up all the things that are going wrong or about to go wrong you may have some small sympathy for their position.

Add now water supply problems to the long list that includes energy, environment, population, food, et al.

The CUMYS (Chinese Upwardly Mobile Young Set) better enjoy their BMW's and Mercs and holidays to Sanya before it's too late.
