Water extraction is sinking nearly half of China’s most populous cities, exacerbated by rapid urban expansion, researchers say. While subsiding land is not a new problem in the country, where Shanghai has sunk three meters over the past century, the amount of land in China resting below sea level could rise from 6% to 26% in the next 100 years. Scientists say the problem will leave 67 million people vulnerable to flooding, compounded by rising sea levels due to climate change. The BBC has more on the study.

A puzzling mix of artifacts at NE site raises questions about route Homo sapiens' took from Africa into China and role of Denisovans or Neanderthals.

“Using ancient stone tools to determine which hominids hung out at Shiyu 45,000 years ago “is like trying to reconstruct how many cultures contributed to the durable metal and plastic contents of a municipal trash can,” Shea says.

We are flooded with BEVs that few people want. More sign that the BEV fad is coming to an end. In the end, it is just a capitalistic system pretending to be green, and works by forcing consumers and governments to pay for it all. The system itself can only operate by overproducing and has no regard for the environment.

A group of bipartisan U.S. lawmakers are advocating for a risky proposition to allow Taiwan to build American-designed weapons systems in order to clear a $19 billion backlog of hardware promised to the country. Supply chain issues and work shortages have plagued the deliveries of tanks, missiles, jets and drones to Taiwan while the nation looks to counter China’s surging influence in the region. Some experts say allowing Taiwan to build the systems could leave them vulnerable to intelligence leaks to China. Politico has more on the proposal.
