China’s longest river “cancerous” with pollution – Yahoo! News

BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s longest river is “cancerous” with pollution and rapidly dying, threatening drinking water supplies in 186 cities along its banks, state media said on Tuesday.

Chinese environmental experts fear worsening pollution could kill the Yangtze river within five years, Xinhua news agency said, calling for an urgent clean-up.

Hmmm, water issues in China, one of the fastest growing powers as well as in the US. Perhaps the future won’t be war over oil, but rather over water?
