Because anywhere more fertile, those hills would have many people living on each one, probably terrace-farming the hillsides. That's the thing with various complaints about China. They're damned if they do and damned if they don't. They have less resources than we do, more people, and a history of non-expansionism and they're doing the best with what they have. Why all the complaining? [/quote] They also have a grand contempt of nature. They just dont give a fuck. This will be changed the hard way. [/quote] Please explain wtf you are talking about. They have about 1.2 billion people on that land, could we handle that many here in the USA? [/quote] They got themselves into it. They got to get themselves out of it in a more respectful way to nature. But since that is not their way of life then their fate is sealed. China was better off when most rode around on bicycles. Now they all want cars. That is NOT progress. That is a death sentence. Contempt for nature is suicide. That is something all countries on Earth must realize. That is the main reason the world is headed to their destiny of doom. [/quote] It was Mao Zedong's insane policy to reward women for having many children, after there were already 400 million people in the country. They've been dealing with the aftermath ever since. And by the way, there's no restriction on saying that Mao made very bad mistakes. Everyone agrees on that. There's an almost reflexive fear of letting the government have too much power in one man's hands and letting that happen again. So, do you go everywhere by bicycle? Why not? Is hyper-environmentalism only good for those other people? Did Chinese have a famous contempt for nature when they were riding bicycles and we were driving gas guzzler cars? [/quote]
China's biggest construction firms will spend £2.2bn to flatten 700 mountains levelling the area Lanzhou, allowing developers to build a new metropolis
The project will be China's fifth "state-level development zone" and the first in the country's rapidly developing interior. Others: Shanghai's Pudong and Tianjin's Binhai,
home to an unfinished, 120-building replica of Manhattan.
Liu Fuyuan, former high-level official at the country's National Development and Reform Commission, said project was unsuitable because Lanzhou is listed as among China's most water-scarce municipalities. "The most important thing is to gather people in places where there is water,"
so, ok, let bulldoze 700 mountains where there is no water.

China will flatten 700 mountains to make way for a new desert metropolis in what is believed to be one of the biggest mountain moving projects in the country's history.
Last year the World Health Organisation named Lanzhou one of China's most polluted cities with the worst air pollution and a shortage of water.
