EDIT
Jonathan Watts discusses his book "When a Billion Chinese Jump"
AIRED:
Earth Focus speaks with Jonathan Watts, Asia environmental correspondent for UK's The Guardian about his new book When a Billion Chinese Jump. Watts travelled more than 100,000 miles across China, looking at cancer villages, toxic air and water pollution and issues that may affect China's ability to feed itself -- melting glaciers and acute water shortages. The environment is now recognized as a security issue in China and Watts addresses how the Chinese leadership is responding. The choices that the world's most populated country makes in the years ahead will have global impact.moreless
