* Chinese climate change report stark and honest

Global warming threatens China’s march to prosperity by reducing crops, shrinking rivers and unleashing more droughts and floods, says the Chinese government’s latest “Second National Assessment Report on Climate Change”.

China is the world’s second biggest economy after the US and the biggest emitter of greenhouse gas pollution, now ahead of the US.

Global warming caused and exacerbated by greenhouse gases from industry, transport and changing land-use poses a long-term threat to China’s prosperity, health and food production, says the report. With China’s economy likely to overtake the United States’ in 20 or 30 years, that has dire consequences.
