    China is facing an "extremely grave" environmental crisis as the true extent of heavy metal and chemical contamination becomes clear

    "China's pollution problem has yet to reach a peak," Wang Jinnan, the vice president of the Chinese Academy of Environmental Planning or CAEP, told a conference at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.....

    Mr Wang, whose organisation is overseen by China's environment ministry, told the conference "toxic chemicals" were a particularly severe issue and described China's "environmental prospects" as "extremely grave".

    The stark warning came as Chinese authorities scrambled to contain the latest environmental disaster to blight a country whose lands and rivers have already been tainted by decades of economic boom.

    On Sunday it emerged that as many as one million residents of a northern city may have been left without running water after toxic chemicals sometimes used to produce herbicides spilt into a river.

    A report from state-run news agency Xinhua said authorities had cut off the water supply to Handan, in Hebei province, after a chemical plant spilt 9 tonnes of aniline into the Zhuozhang River.

    The chemical leak reportedly happened on New Year's Eve in the neighbouring province of Shanxi but was only reported this weekend.
    "The water is all sold out in the supermarket, from panic buying. The price has gone up too," one local, named as Mr Sun, told the Yanzhao Metropolis newspaper.

    "We can't flush our toilet and we can't cook at home. The restaurants are out of water too."

    "Unbalanced, uncoordinated and unsustainable development," was no longer acceptable, Mr Hu warned.
    But critics say the destruction of China's ecosystems continued unabated during Mr Hu's decade in power.

    **********************************************

    An economic boom may fill money in the pocket, but unbalanced, uncoordinated and unsustainable development leads to pollution that leads to disease and ailments draining the pocket and maybe even life, and at the end of the day, create a crisis wherein the situation comes wherein statements like "We can't flush our toilet and we can't cook at home. The restaurants are out of water too." become common.

    Therefore as Mr Hu has clearly stated the boom requires to be thought through and unbalanced, uncoordinated and unsustainable development is eliminated.

    There is no doubt that the social factors that negatively impinges on growth requires to be cranked in, so that the Nation does not come to grief!

    And it will have a serious repercussion on the health of the Chinese.

    It will make them disease prone and is it the reason why they are being encouraged to have more industries and choke?

    Chinese can kill themselves so long as they are making money.

    Money is their God!

    Hu has said so indirectly.

    Nowhere near New Delhi's cleaness indeed. and they fake their statistics, even data shows New Delhi has a much heavier SPC, Indian people did that on purpose for military disguise. No Chinese statllite will spot the smog camouflaged capital.

    YOu are visitng various thread on China and displaying that you are daft.

    Do show some logic that is closer to reality.

    It might interest you that while China is accused of faking statistics, that dubious honour has not yet been bestowed on India.
