Does China’s Environment make the Grade?
Asia environment correspondent, Jonathan Watts has an interesting take on China’s Ministry of Environmental Protections “State of the Environment” by using a grading scale and his interpretation of the facts.
  • Freshwater Quality - F – Dangerous failure

             Four in every 10 lakes are turning green and choked by algae

  • Air Quality - Grade: D+ Poor but showing signs of improvement

             Almost one in five cities still fails to meet the low passing grade set by the government on an annual basis.

  • Coastal Water Quality - Grade: D-/E+ Poor but showing signs of improvement

             Almost a quarter of coastal waters are so contaminated they are off the scale.

Glyphosate Herbicide Roundup Triggers Loss of Biodiversity - The glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup has been found to trigger the loss of biodiversity among phytoplankton communities in freshwater ponds. In their experiments, scientists found that while some populations developed resistance to the herbicide and were able to survive exposure at high levels, this came at a cost, with a 40 percent loss in biodiversity.
