Environment: Learning from the snow crisis in China.

From ChinaDialogue, Tang Hao writes of the lessons gleaned from the snow crisis in China. “Environmental action alone will not combat the social problems that will arise or worsen with greater disasters. Sustainable development requires that politics and the environment are given equal consideration. The efforts we make will not stop disasters happening, but they will better equip us to deal with them and reduce losses.”
