More than 60. Million people have been affected 15 million acres of farmland destroyed. That's an area roughly the size of West Virginia. The world's Shanghai correspondent Rebecca Kanther joins us now, Rebecca what's so unusual about the level of flooding this summer? I mean, what's going on there? Well, you know, every year there's flooding in China. I mean, we're in a monsoon climate during this time of the year, But this year, the flooding started much earlier than usual, and it's much larger scale. On their saying. This is the worst flooding since 1998 and it's covering a wide swath of China. So you've got flooding in the southeastern portion, but you also have flooding in the central part near the Three Gorges Dam. What spend the reaction from the people you've spoken to? Well, I spoke to Claritin, who is a tutor and crunching and so she was.

So natural capital is kind of a dry sounding term, but it's basically earth lands, waters and the biodiversity all the life. We don't think much about natural capital and we pay a lot of attention to financial capital. That sort of keeps everything flowing, and your point is that there's other input into our economy, and one of those is nature and The term natural capital is designed to integrate into our economic thinking the role that nature is playing in how the economy functions not only today but also in the future. That's exactly right. Basically, historically, we've Recognize the scarcity often and value of these other forms of capital. And the immense payoff from investing in them. And it's just now that we're starting to recognize the scarcity of natural capital. The modern metric for calculating the health of a country's economy is gross domestic product. It's traditionally been based solely on the market value of all the goods and services produced in the country over a period of time. Alien. Her team want to extend that notion to a compass.

So it was during the Great Depression. That GDP was developed, and nowadays it's the great degradation of natural capital that is driving development of GDP.

Where they recognized that even with all the success they had had and highest GDP growth rates in the world and lifting so many millions of people Out of poverty more successfully than any other country has done.

US at 15% is number two. Air and water pollution are estimated to cause over 1.5 million premature deaths per year in China. One of the main catalysts for China was The biblical scale flooding that happened in 1998. It was traced to dramatic deforestation that had occurred over some years before in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River system and that deforestation made downstream people much more vulnerable to devastating flooding. And the reason is that forests or like a sponge, But in 1998 the deforestation had been really extensive. The rains were much heavier than usual. And not just spell disaster and millions of people were affected. The total costs were estimated kind of at a lower bound at about $35 billion. And rapidly.

"For the PBS NewsHour comes on. After the world this afternoon at three o'clock, Iran led public radio. Hi, Marco Woman you're with the world. It's the worst flood season that southern China has seen in decades. 50 million people have been affected after twice the average rainfall fell in some places over the past two months. Flooding is expected get worse in many parts of the world as climate change makes rainfall more intense and pushes up sea levels. So today in our weekly look at climate change solutions. We explore what China has been doing to make floods less damaging. We have come here to let you know that change is coming, Whether you like it or not. Can we turn this around? We have no adoption, the only option that we have his way. What we do now and in the next two years will profoundly affect the next few. 1000 years. Here's the world's and a customer with this week's installment of the Big Fix, Reporting on efforts to reduce flooding in China, the rain started and just didn't stop. In a cellphone video taken this week in the city of unsure, water gushes down the street and a man watches repeating unbelievable over and over in Chinese because of all the rain, the 4000 mile long Yangtze River and hundreds of tributaries overflowed their banks this summer. More than 150 people are now dead or missing, and more than 400,000 homes were damaged or destroyed. The impact is devastating, but it could have been much worse like it was during China's last major flood back in 1998. Although the precipitation is much higher than the year of 1998 to the fraud is the less serious Jin Gu Lou is an environmental scientist at Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, China. 1988 flood killed more than 3000 people, and Lou says it made China rethink everything when it comes to managing floods. So definitely this is a very important turning point for Chinese government to think about the relation between few men under the nature For centuries, China's flood prevention strategy was to build walls called levies on the edge of the river bank with people living in farming right on the other side. After the 1998 flood, the government started to think about how people could live with the water. Rather than fighting it. They planted trees upstream from the rivers to help absorb rain water. The Chinese government initiated a lot of programs for the forestry restore reason. The government launched some of the biggest reforestation programs in the world. So when we plant more trees in the upstream, this can reduce the write off on this is very hard for for the Medication off the flood humans. Chinese authorities also launched the Sponge city project, making flood prone cities along the Yangtze absorb more rain water using things like more green spaces and permeable pavements, and they started to restore floodplains. Floodplain is the low lying area adjacent to a river that is periodically flooded. Jeff Opperman is the lead freshwater scientists with the World Wildlife Fund. He says rivers naturally overflow into flood plains rivers tend to swell and rise and occupied their flood plains on a fairly regular basis. So Abraham says one of the best ways to protect people from flooding is to have fewer people living there. That's where the most Potential bang for the buck is and that's what China did. After 1998 the government relocated around 2.5 1,000,000 people and restoring 1000 square miles of floodplain along the Yangtze. Change. An environmental scientist Joon Gu. Lou says these interventions helped. He argues their part of the reason why the toll from this year's flooding is so far, only a fraction of what it was in 1998. But floodplain restoration has its limits. Trees and permeable pavement can only absorb so much water and convincing people to move away from the Yanks. E at a larger scale is nearly impossible. Tens of millions of people live there. It's the heart of China's rice growing region. Here is China Flood expert David Shankman at the University of Alabama. There's some places across these flood plains is far as you can see, it's rice with small agricultural villages. Even though the government has incentivized to many people to move away from the floodplains. The population keeps increasing. Many families have lived there for generations. And don't want to give up farming for these provinces along the middle Youngster River. You can't in a practical way. Move, you know. Five million people, 10 million people. The Three Gorges Dam, the controversial project that displaced more than a 1,000,000 people has also helped this year by holding some of the Yanks E back. Shankman argues there needs to be even more storage for floodwaters. With climate change likely to make flooding worse in some places. Sicilia Takahata, water policy expert at the University of Singapore, says countries can learn from what has worked and what hasn't in China's large scale projects on in terms of flood water management. They have learned a lot. So this is something that I think has been done very well. She says Countries should be thinking in a long term for a world with more intense and disruptive flooding events because Flesh will not go away. So you have to plan for because that will be the new normal. Creating a better relationship between people and rivers is a challenge that will only get harder as the planet gets.

Come true they are. You can avoid the genetic mischief of drastic parks Isla New bar end the radioactive horror of monster island but still visit a place where prehistoric creatures thrive in the wild skull island. Sometimes sometimes called. Kong's island is home to perplexing array of organisms as captured in the nineteen thirty three film King Kong and its sequels and remakes. It houses everything everything from native populations of Homo Sapiens to dinosaurs like tyrannosaurus and stegosaurus. And then there's the Ape Lord himself King Kong. Ah Unlike the dinosaurs tear soars and please sores palm. Island Kung doesn't quite line up with any known prehistoric beast even gigantic pethick. As the largest known primate of all time stood no more than ten feet tall. That's about three meters Kung however stands at least eighteen feet or five and a half meters tall in the nineteen eighteen thirty three film and is even taller in some telling 's sizing up like this can prove something of a risky move evolutionary speaking bigger bodies come with increased energy demands and body changes to keep everything from falling apart noted zoologist r McNeill Alexander once explained the King Kong would collapse under under his own weight. He'd be a hundred and twenty five times the volume of a real ape loaded with one hundred and twenty five times the weight but on the physical frame of a typical guerrilla. His legs simply wouldn't be able to support him. Essentially you can't just scale up creatures size and expect it to function the same way plus an apelike Kong might be big enough to defeat all its fellow beasts in a brawl but couldn't cope with climate change habitat loss or the destructive tendencies of human civilization. Even if he somehow could support weight being big isn't enough to cope with these other dangers. Priest titans like gigantic pickus and the giant Slavs present a valuable lesson in the vulnerability of life as giant land mammals national geographic ones pointed out that based on computer modeling of Heights. Every species species has an effective upper limit of size and the closer they evolved toward that size the greater the risk of extinction. Perhaps that's why King Kong is typically described as the last of his kind even skull island seems incapable of supporting a robust population of rampaging giant apes. Not only would he be considered an an endangered species. He's also what's often referred to as functionally extinct because let's face it. Kong species is at a dead end despite an alleged had sun cong popping up from time to time the population of this species has clearly dipped well below the threshold for genetically stable reproduction in other words. If there are female cones out there the resulting offspring would be subject to the sort of lack of genetic diversity that leads to genetic disorders and eventually extinction and Kong's not alone. Several real life species exist in the state of impending doom including the Baiji a freshwater dolphin once found in the Yangtze River. We've we've even seen a recent example of a last known member of a species succumbing to extinction George the last Hawaiian tree snail who died in captivity on January first of two thousand nineteen George No giant but his death highlights the lesser known plights of extinction that of snails and slugs amphibians face a similar crisis and in both cases there are inevitable ripple effects throughout the

But also I worked when she said it though because I was like have you also eaten the citrus leaf like good people? The edible edible doesn't always mean. You know, great tasting to me. It just means. You're not going to die of poison. Exact it's if an eat it. Yeah. I mean, it's you know, I'm not trying to downplay. But if you look at like a lot of. Native American Indian meals, right? As the food. They had the different grains, the different corns where they were. Inc. But you know, they're they weren't always great tasting stuff. They would have to do a lot to make some protein some nutritionists there if to survive. Yeah. So I think that was funny that should mentioned edible trees because there are a lot of edible tree has. But just a deer around bark is at about the horseradish tree, by the way. Not is that the one you said that the entire trees edible. Yeah. So if you're restricted someplace in a band situation, you want to be next to one of those if you want to survive. Yeah. But if you can plan being stranded next to one of those trees, you could probably plan on being stranded next. Might be a lot easier. The trees probably better for you. Go ahead. What about the tree John? Yeah. Tells more about the tree is going to let you Google it. And oh listeners. Well, they can. Except for Marilyn Marilyn doesn't have a computer. So what gives us a little bit of background about the tree you to us. You are Google. You know, John is Google if you're going to do that I might as well look up. Can't remember these scientific name offhand. But I'll look it up while you tiger. Well, weaving back and forth tiger an I- drumstick drums. Dick tree is the common. Name Ringa Ringa Ringa. There's a lot of marine goes out there. Right. Because there's there's a few other ones this horseradish one Maria family is that what it is tiger. Yeah. Exactly. Marina, and this one's all the faira. But. Yeah. Also called the horseradish tree or drumstick Sherie small deciduous. I was gonna say delicious. Tree native to tropical Asia, but also naturalized Africa. Flowers. Pods leaves and even twigs are all cooked in I'm assuming it has a horseradish flavor. But it has nothing to do with horseradish. It's not related to the horseradish at all isn't the name tree. Also native of Africa, John South Africa. I think name is India if I'm not, okay? But could be right. Yeah. But before the break, also I had mentioned mother's day's coming around the corner. So exciting. In the yellow drains on sale. But we talk about this all the time in the show that that is the official day for people on the east coast to really be able to earnings. So the countdown right now, they're just sitting there waiting, you know, what was that was that commercial that came out years ago about the woman, and she would stand up front of store and be like. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Waiting partial counting down like that. So it opens up. Do we have an I'm trying to think the last storm? I heard about. I don't think I guess, I guess we're we're doing okay. As far as mother's day being on target for that day. I was talking to a woman in Waterford Michigan who plays called in place in order last week. And she wanted to know if we would ship late because she said, I usually don't plant until after Memorial Day. Just to make sure I said. Yeah. And I said, yeah. You know, you're right next door to where I used to live and I've had I've had tomatoes freeze on the first week in June. So you knew the area, obviously. And they still have a long enough season to get tomato. Yeah. But you can't grow things that require longer season. For instance, some of the winter squash the takeover one hundred day watermelon much earlier than that then. Right while you can't. But I'm saying put them in a greenhouse thing. Right. Exactly. Yeah. So watermelons they can only grow the small like sugar babies, but a large watermelon. They only dream of growing the pumpkin. No, Fiqh pumpkins not so much. They can't grow pumpkins. I wanted to also mention for mother's day. This was thought I was trying to collect when tiger started hitting me up with or strategy. Is if you go to heirloom roses, heirloom roses dot com that I think they still have my latest stroz available which is called KENDALL Marie? And the reason I bring it up is because my planet home once stem. I counted eighty flowers on and kindle Marie. Yeah. And it should be they should be open next week. So I'll bring one in studio next. Let's take a picture of it. But it surprises me. How many you can get on wants down. It's a pollyanna rose in KENDALL. Spelled if you're go to their website, and you're googling it. It's K E N D Y L, not googling but searching, which on their website, the Y just like I do in my name. Yeah. Weinstein of the I K A N D Y L KENDALL Marie? But and the roses that come from heirloom roses are really nice. Yeah. One gallon. Nice size ready to put right in the ground. You asked me a couple of weeks ago. I was getting blooms on my roses yet. No. But I am now starting to bloom. The years are in a little bit more shade. And did you cut your spec? Layup cut it back late. Yeah. I did probably late February. So it's been it's been a while. But there again last couple of years, the the green planet has been just huge. It's just huge stocks told you they California Costa said he was gonna have green planet in the auction again this year in a while last time, we had one was when you got yours, which Eric my bid on it. Right. And that was how long ago we were still in that little that little in Carlsbad in that little town hall meeting place. It's got to be like ten twelve years ago. Well, I was driving my head and F one fifty truck back read one that I bought in two thousand four so you're talking two thousand four two thousand five so what about fifteen years ago? Wow. So long time that is a long time the originals still got it still doing well. It's moved from a couple of two or three houses since then. Yeah. I remember. You you were doing scientific testing to see how little soil. Right. And I found out through much research and study that you only need probably to three inches of soil and more than that save the soil. What are we doing? We were wasting soil wasting. I didn't get it. I do know that once you put some soil in the pot at that a lot better. Yeah. Well, it was hard to get it to stand up without a soil. That's really why I came in. And did that okay. Sixty minutes after the break up and we get back from break. We have a question about the large population of flowers and the bugs they're gonna be. Let's do it. Let's get those questions on Facebook live right there. Questions comments? You can also talk to each of the two which is fun..

"Here's your host. Eric stewart. Okay. So what's the dream that you have of retirement buddy of mine? Retired Bill is his name. Yeah. Bill just just retarded announced it, and he's living his dream life now of playing golf three or four days a week just relaxing and join eating what he wants to eat, but not going to work anymore because he can live off of the assets that he invested in created through his work life of some forty years of working. So after getting up at seven o'clock in the morning for forty five years, you may not be able to just sleep as long as you want. Because frankly, you, you know, you do that for a day or two, and then it's like go Kay. I got all the rest of it. I need. What do I do? Now. So. Oftentimes, there's some kind of panic that sets in I think because ultimately the whole idea of sitting on a park bench and feeding pigeons doesn't seem so attractive even though maybe when things are torrential and difficult, and you think about I just can't wait to not have to always be under the gun. Well, if you're browsing you're Yangtze river deals, you know, Yangtze river steamship deals in China. Maybe you're thinking about shoveling your own coal. Maybe you'll have more fun because the non-tourist experience oftentimes will give you more enjoyment in retirement, actually, doing some work doing some volunteer work. And so all of this is leading us to the following question. Widow care is searching for board members we have seven board members. Currently, and we are looking to add to new board members. And you do not need to be a widow or widower to actually apply for board membership. We're looking for business leaders who've had a successful career in looking to invest with. They know into an organization whose heart is to serve widows and widowers in distress by launching our widow care mentorship program this year and also by having our content and connections meetings this past week a very successful speaker series with three excellent widows speaking to a large audience. That we created that. That was so meaningful to see the conversations to see the interaction and the connection that happened. As a result of it. Perhaps you've got skills you'd like to put to work, and maybe you never thought about working to serve widows and widowers is demographic, please contact us. At widow care contact us. I'm the founder, and I'm the executive director Marisa Martin who is currently the head of outreach can take your call and give you some of the details.

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. The chaplains who have committed very few troops to Shanghai. Remember, their they're Bob down in the north fighting the Chinese also very worried about a Soviet attack. At this point, the Japanese pharma worried about the Soviets and for good 'cause they will lose badly to them in the following year. Nineteen thirty eight however, the Japanese have very few troops in Shanghai. They've got to bring reinforcements in once the Rover. Well, a generalist chosen to lead the Japanese counterattack, and there will be a landing to the north of double prong landing. My notes say the third division and the eleventh division of the Japanese imperial army, and it will be led by a man who is fifty nine years old a veteran of the Russell Japanese war. His name is Matsui. Wanting what do we need to know about him? Peter Matt sui, what are what are his capabilities in launching the counterattack? What is a very complex character today is known mainly as the bookshop managing because of what happened to seven months in the future. That's how known and Matarrese. To staticky. But if you look at the man as he ends up the the campaign in all of us nineteen seventy seven. It was a very complex on the one hand. And he was not just, you know, the traditional Japanese nationalist was the only disdain for other. Nationalities. What's actually something of of a pan Asian? He was in favor of of some level of cooperation among the Asian nations against the western imperialist policies. This reflected in the fact that actually just a year or two before he was put in charge of the troops and sang high hitting traveling around China talking to several very prominent Chinese politicians, including yes, the Changcai shack. And there was reason to believe that the Japanese were making diplomatic success with Changcai Shak who had not counter-attacked to this point Chiang Kai-Shek had mostly poured his energy into defeating the communists into cutting their throats and driving them out of the eastern part of the country. So when they chose Matsui this was a man who knew his enemy, what did he believe about the Chinese army? Did he think it was inferior? Did he think it over one them quickly? Well, he he had to pretty realistic ideas about the Chinese these from what we can see in the sources. I think eventually he was something of pessimist if his diary, it's it's it's not a guy. He gets carried away. And it's over up to mystic about how easy the task ahead of him is he's. He he's he's definitely aware of the obstacles ahead of him. Maybe also something we ate like he's he's not. He's not a young man by any means his approaching sixty at the time. And so yes, I would say that he he understood that it was it was not a push. Oh was not going to be an easy five. But at the same time Kenya where of the of the technological superiority headed his disposal and also had the great faith in the troops. He was sending into battle actually had them. And eleven division Correa. And he personally knew several of the officers who two part in the landing in late August, right? The Japanese land at flaunt fun show is that how you say that Shawn Chow coup and how Shan to places the third and eleventh division that the Chinese barely counterattack. They respond very sluggishly who is in command of the Chinese resistance, the Chinese military in Shanghai. At this point. Who's led the offensive who doesn't respond to the Japanese landing? Well. Somewhat. Confused. Command conditions emission high area. It's probably a little bit to do with Chang. Shik wanting to divide a moon. He doesn't want someone to have too much authority. Too much initiative in the in the area. So he has to commanders who pretty much have the same say in in the Shanghai CO, and one is relatively person foam Awal code shown, who is pretty late back and definitely hands off and just wants to feel command to do the job and just sit behind and not interfere too much. Then the the other the other officer junkie tone who is almost at the same level, at least in practical, terms and. Ham. But for different reasons, he is really sick. He was actually about to go on on sickly. When when the war broke out, so probably ultimate the ideal choice of a command Shanghai area of command. There was a severe America of decisive. Personal command Mishan high Sierra at the crucial time Japanese attacked the Japanese get ashore to the north of the city Shanghai. Think of it as a peninsula and to the north of it is the Yangtze river basin, which is where the Japanese land, and they control all the area to the north of the Yangtze to the south is a large bay hang show. The city in between. And then the wetlands because this is drainage for the Yangtze river basin. Extend all the way from Shanghai to Nanjing. So there lots of creeks lots of rivers lots of lakes. Lots of natural barriers for an army as Peter said, this is not good tank country. Shangcai Shak has chosen Shanghai in the very densely populated area of Shanghai in neighborhoods. That are thick with people and wooden build houses, very frail. Lots of places to live some big concrete. Mason constructions that will see and the international community is that the south of the the wind. Boo. River the Japanese of landed to the north of Shanghai. Well to the north of the Wang river. They advance shoulder to shoulder, and it becomes from late August into September into Tober Bob down like the first World War because the rains come where the Japanese discouraged as they can. Having to put more troops in Peter. Yes. The matz. What you want is the diary for from from from the field. It's it's very clear that even though he was pretty pissed mystic. Even from the outset things actually develop to even worse than we had expected. He hit me. In a in a timetable that was that he has working by that he expected to to pretty much being control of the Shanghai area by. Tober and nothing that happened. It'd be bogged down by this by the rain and much like like the western fun to twenty years in. What was then known as the great war. So mat-su becomes frustrated all during September and October. And yet the massacre is underway the Chinese poor pretty good troops in, but they're taking huge casualties Chiang KAI Shek starts playing for international intervention. What is the Brussels meeting that? He's waiting for Peter. Meeting of civil of the great policy of the bay. The hope is that at least be able to get some kind of international sympathy because of this meeting so. Is determine the sequence of events. It's kind of. It it takes place in November, which means that you really a fall to withdraw from onto after this. This meeting has started. You you come the fall too little west out of sangha into little having that people have never heard about. The has to take place in in a big city, which at one knows. And one place in the map. It has to be carried out at the international community is represented by all of the newspaper man, all of the diplomats there on voice, the United States is there. It's Peter has pictures that show the US marines in the international community. It's a fenced off area. The French have soldiers the French foreign legion there. The Germans will flying the Nazi flag over there embassy are right next to the Americans the Italians there, it's an international bizarre living their lives exempt from the fighting that's going on north of the wing poo. Although every once in a while the journalists will dash in and watch the massacres the bloodletting is ferocious and make a note here because Peter does the hospital conditions for the wounded soldiers are abysmal to absent completely you note that the Chinese soldiers were ignorant of modern medicine, they were herbal specialists. They believed in. Herbs and they didn't understand hygiene. They would use the bandages that ordinarily would be used for wounds to scrub out their rifles. They also had inferior Queant. So they're losing slowly while the newspapers are filing on them. What was the opinion all during September and October in the United States in Europe? Was this a desperate fight where the Japanese sick where the Japanese seen as aggressors? How did it? How did it play in Europe in the United States? Peter. The Japanese would definitely seen as the aggressors and China was seeing the as the potty being being being violated. And also, I think that the fact that China was extend democratic system at the time that the fact that democracy onto pressure also working in the in the western media. Pop. The I think one thing that's really remarkable. When you look at the reporting. Some from the Shanghai area is is sometimes even watching. Watching relation of the of the common Chinese SOGA? It's been to the battle of Shanghai. That's been this stereotype of Chinese. It's not being a soldier material. Probably for quite good reasons. Like China had not won a single wall for the past two centuries. Sometimes that even most was two countries to vast smaller than it self. But then receive like China fund, the making span against a very efficient, very aggressive. So the Japanese and actually scoring some minor victories against this very threaded military power. What you see in a lot of reporting at the time is surprised at how good so just the Chinese actually off. Peter harm sin is the author of the book Shanghai 1937 Stalingrad on the Yangtze. What.

They respond very sluggishly who is in command of the Chinese resist the Chinese military in Shanghai. At this point. Who's led the offensive who doesn't respond to the Japanese landing? Well there. Somewhat. Confused. Command conditions in the Shanghai area. It's probably a little bit to do with a Changcai Schick wanting to divide a moon. He doesn't want someone to have too much authority. An too much initiative in the in the area. So he has a combined those who pretty much have the same say in the high Sierra one is the oath person Afam Awal north foam, you Sean, who is pretty laid back into definitely hands off and just wants to feel commanded us to do the job and just sit behind and not interfere too much. But then the the other the other officer junkie Joel who is almost at the same level these in practical, terms and. Is a hamlet for different reasons. He says to Bailey sick. He was actually about to go on the on sicne when when the wall resolve so ultimately, the ideal choice of command Shanghai area. So in some of command there was a severe lack of decisive. Personal commanded.
