Scientists don't approve of bulldozing mountains in China
June 6 , 2014
China is getting rid of its mountains to make way for cities, but Chinese scientists say that has already caused some visible damage in the form of pollution.
"Because there have been no land-creation projects like this before in the world, there are no guidelines," Chinese academic Peiyue Li said, adding that the government should do more research and close the project if required.
According to the authors of the paper, the ancient Chinese fable "The Foolish Old Man who Removed the Mountains" sums up the situation.
