Environment - China Flooding Death Toll

Floods in China now have a confirmed death toll of 101 across seven provinces. In addition, nearly a million people have been evacuated from their homes, and nearly 300,000 homes have been destroyed. Over 5 million acres of farmland have been affected. Of course, today's fishwrap carried the exciting news that many Chinese officials and people are no longer following the one-child policy. Bad cess to ye, fools, human population increase is the biggest contributor to global warming. Much as I hate to say it, we are bringing these catastrophes upon ourselves, with our insistence on reproducing beyond the ability of the earth to sustain us.
