Chinese water relocation torture

The Daily Evergreen: In an effort to bring water to dry and overpopulated cities like Beijing and Tianjin, China has, since 2001, been engaged in an effort called the South-to-North Water Diversion Project. The project will divert water from the Yangtze River to supply drier areas in the north.

Not only is the undertaking highly destructive to the environment, the forced relocation of 330,000 people and the $62 billion it will cost are not worth a system that may not deliver clean water when finished.
