China's Yangtze is in peril
One of the biggest river in the world and the largest in China, the Yangtze river is in serious peril. The river was told is was too big for pollution to occur due to its sheer capacity of 900 billions of water. However the incident which took few months back ago have showed signs of pollution. It was said the river was too big to poison although that assumption was wrong. Hydrologists are saying that the water is cancerous and could cause a major imbalance in marine life and enviornment. The 3,964 mile long river supports some 400 million people which means one in every 15 people in the planet.
