Featured: 28,000 rivers have disappeared in China. Who’s responsible?

An alarming new environmental phenomenon raises a need for the alternative harvesting of water resources. 

Once a river, always a river? Not in China. According to a recent study published in the Bulletin of First National Census for Water, around 28,000 rivers have disappeared due to the exploitation of water resources, including large hydroelectric damming projects. Most alarmingly, it appears that this so-called “disappearance of rivers” has taken place over the last 3 decades alone – and isn’t showing signs of stopping anytime soon. 

Some elected officials have noted that this problem might be linked to inaccurate data pertaining to the original number of rivers. However, those who insist it is a consequence of climate change have called for alternative harvesting of water resources.
