Published in November 2014 by Palgrave Macmillan, “Meltdown in Tibet: China’s Reckless Destruction of Ecosystems from the Highlands of Tibet to the Delta of Asia” by Michael Buckley looks at accelerated climate change as well as the effects of Chinese damming and mining on Tibet.
From the Palgrave Macmillan website:
Ruthless Chinese repression leaves Tibetans powerless to stop the reckless destruction of their sacred land, but they are not the only victims of this campaign: the nations downstream from Tibet rely heavily on rivers sourced in Tibet for water supply, and for rich silt used in agriculture. This ecocide has been happening with little scrutiny until now. Meltdown in Tibet turns the spotlight on the darkest side of China’s emergence as a global super power.
