The Chinese government is planning to bulldoze 700 gorgeous mountains to make room for more urban sprawl.

The Chinese government is planning to shear the tops off of 700 mountains, filling nearby valleys with the debris and flattening the land so cities can grow even larger.
Scientists fear that this initiative will put China's people and wildlife in grave danger. Many mountains have already been targeted; researchers point out that this has led to increased air and water pollution, erosion and flooding in the nearby areas.
Given that one-fifth of China's huge population lives in mountainous regions, this plan puts an enormous number of people at risk.
And the effects won't end there. As Chinese cities grow, so too will the nation's carbon footprint, in turn speeding up climate change all over the planet.
We have to p ut a stop to this annihilation of China's gorgeous landscape. Tell the government to stop destroying mountains to make room for cities!
