China and Mother Nature- Who is Winning

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 21, 2011

It has been reported that in China they have suffered 329,000 geological disasters since 1998,  resulting in  property losses of more than 61 billion yuan ($9.6 billion).In 2010 there were  30,670 geological disasters and losses of 6.4 billion yuan. Much of this has to do with mudslides and such from China’s poor management of her resources.

    Actually it was this website that prompted me out of curiosity to count up the death tolls of these accidents, and riots, because there were alot, so I decided what the hell count them all.
