A recent study has found that Beijing, the capital of China is sinking as much as 11 cm per year. As one of the largest cities in the world with a population over 20 million, this could prove to be a serious problem.
On July 22nd, Chinese researchers announced that they had discovered an underwater sinkhole under the South China Sea near the Paracel Islands. Underwater sinkholes are also know as blue holes and this new one has proven to be the deepest ever discovered.
The black veil of air pollution in the industrial valley of Sichuan seems that have played a key role in the deadly flood of 2013, which was the worst that China had ever lived during the last 50 years.
