It seems as if China will tell the rest of the world where to stick it when it come to the so called "global Warming" science. Things are evidently going in their direction. If it is true, then what possible excuse in the world would they have to stop what they are doing? We need to stop worrying about the environment so much and start worrying the direction that China is taking in their military and business practice. If we don't we won't have to worry about the environment anyway, because the Chinese will be the ones who are in control.
C3: Climate Change In China: Less Sandstorms, Shrinking Desert, Increased Vegetation Experts Find:
"'The five researchers report that 'over the past three decades, winter snow depth overall increased in northern China, particularly in the most arid and semiarid regions of western China where desert and grassland are mainly distributed,' and they say that in those specific areas there were positive correlations between mean winter snow depth and spring NDVI [Normalized Difference Vegetation Index] data.....In discussing the implications of their findings, Peng et al. write that the 'increase in vegetation coverage in arid and semiarid regions of China, possibly driven by winter snow, will likely restore soil and enhance its antiwind-erosion ability, reducing the possibility of released dust and mitigating sand-dust storms,' while noting that the frequency of sand-dust storms has indeed 'declined in China since the early 1980s.'
