China: Plateau in Peril

A newly launched interactive site ‘China Green’ focuses on China's environmental and climate issues. The first project is about Tibetan Plateau, shows how the effects of global warming on the plateau is posing a grave threat to a third of humanity. This is because most of Asia's might river systems find their headwaters from the plateau.

Below is a trailer of the project, click to watch.

The site includes many more videos, interviews and interactive slideshows that depict changes in the glaciers of Mt. Everest.

    I am a Chinese, but I have never been to the Tibetan Plateau. Hope I will have a chance to go there in the near future.
