Excellent and upsetting book addressing the damage waged on the natural world by the industrial expansion and demands of new money in China. Well written, fast paced, with excellent citations/references at end. Includes: pollution, deforestation of rainforests, endangered precious woods and animal habitat; pressure to kill endangered elephants, tigers, rhinos for ornamentation and medicine-probably driving to extinction. Addresses climate change and the huge amounts of CO2 being pumped into the atmosphere from coal fired industries. All current headline material. Indicates that China may be the tipping point regarding the earth's rich environment. A frightening look into the possible future of our planet.
