It's not going to be just China, either. If we can survive 6 or 7 more lakes evaporating and 6 or 7 rivers drying up, the 3 or 4 thousand survivors just might make it.

China resisted efforts to fight global climate change for a long time, even claiming to be a "developing country". Well it's come back with a fury. Maybe China might want to address this issue instead of trying to become a hegemonic power in the region. The Chinese people would be much better off.

Substitute the word "World" for "China," and the title would be more accurate.

Searing heat--it's called summer.

So you think China will experiment summer only from next year? the article clearly explain what searing heat means on the context of record high temperatures and occurrence of extreme weather of other types.

The denial of the climate crisis is stupid and suicidal. Our knowledge of physics and system theory tells us that in the wake of the inputs inserted by humans the climate system has become nonlinear and unstable. This system is full of malignant positive feedback loops that push it away from equilibrium. There are no stabilizing mechanisms whatsoever that can keep the climate system in equilibrium. But there is no need to be an expert: The rapid rise in temperature and humidity is visible to the naked eye. The catastrophic loss of our planet and the ultimate extermination of humanity are very near. There may still be a remedy: Getting out from energizing ourselves from carbon, and moving on to a new era of energizing ourselves from the sun's radiation and from heavy nuclei. That is easy to do, and should have been done a long time ago. However, there are powerful social forces that fight vehemently against this simple and obvious cure and against the attempt to salvage the planet and the human race. These enemies of the planet claim that moving to modern transportation based on electricity will ruin our society. These devils do not explain how can the usage of efficient, high performance and enjoyable electric cars ruin our society? And what society will remain when the temperature rises to hundreds of degrees Celsius and all the oceans boil and become steam?
