Yellow River to Change Name

In another sign of how awful environmental problems in China are, the Yellow River turned red the other day.

The Chinese people are starting to pay attention to the environment; now that incomes are on the rise, people can afford to consider the world in which they live. And so the government is listening.

One of the colossal issues China faces is whether it can get a grip on its environmental problems before it turns most of the West into a wasteland. Right now the government is still myopically focused on growth – especially in the west – so things are going to get a lot worse before they get any better.
