A newly launched interactive site ‘China Green’ [1]focuses on China's environmental and climate issues. The first project is about Tibetan Plateau, shows how the effects of global warming on the plateau is posing a grave threat to a third of humanity. This is because most of Asia's might river systems find their headwaters from the plateau.
