The country's water resources ministry says the worst point in mid July four, hundred, thirty, three rivers rose to dangerous levels. Some broke through dams or overflowed their banks flooding nearby villages like hoopoe in an we province. Up. The road in front of our house became a river.

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. Environmental factors what they've termed gross ecosystem product or G e P. What's really motivated development of GP? His recognition that we're really in the great degradation of natural capital. 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. So deep was actually called for by leadership in China. 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. That Actually, it came at this devastating cost, according to the China is responsible for 30% of the world's coatue emissions and is the world's biggest source of co. Two by a wide margin. 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.

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

I have pasta regularly and my husband is a master's zoodles maker sakina noodles but when it comes to champion the greatest of all time time the king of the mountain it has to be rice rice is so delicious so nutritious so superior career to all other foods that in some ancient myths it came from the heavens above like this legend from the meow people of southern china.

The racist better than noodles that makes more sense scientists believe that rice first appeared near the yangtze river in china over eight thousand jose years ago the people that lived in the area started trading rice and before long it was growing throughout southern china then rice spread from china to sri lanka concha to india the mediterranean north africa and europe and from europe it was brought over to what was known back then as the new world old and people realized they could grow rice pretty much everywhere in the tropics. The wetlands probably even in your sock drawer and recently elite group of chinese scientists successfully grew rice in the desert to there are tons of varieties of rice all over the world. There's the familiar brown and white rice but have you ever heard of black rice also known as forbidden rice. It was reserved for emperors royalty the and ancient china. There's tied jasmine rice.

"But if you move like attention to say western part of China, especially people live in the mountainous area you defined there's lack of service. So that's really about to the access to medicine service of focus on some of especially in the far remote region. Probably there's no adopt at all new single doctor and for village large or small if you get sick you have to, you know, walk long distance and go to the city seed probably to be received and to be taking care of. So that's a challenge. I think that's the one of the challenges for the development the government. The central government has been planning has been doing a lot of job. But obviously. This is the latest tapped to help reduce help relieve the challenge in the rural regions, well, actually, China has plenty of doctors because according to government statistics, China has two thousand eight hundred ninety thousand medical practitioners nationwide and the doctor proportion of the population is two percent to per thousand which is more than WHO's recommended one point five percent of seems it seems that those doctors are just unwilling to go to the rural areas as well. Well to Parsa in this question firstly, people would wonder why if we look at the number of doctors in China is above the average recommended by WHO eight should be fun. But also, remember if you compare China to only OECD countries in EU countries from the organization for economic cooperation development Bisky rich country club if you compare onto those rich countries. Yes, China has fewer practicing doctors than those OECD countries in particular for countries like Austria and Greece. But if you compare onto other developing countries, for example to Riquet Brazil and Colombia, it's more or less the same is in a similar situation. But y you know, if you take a look at the urban area, they still a sense of the shelter which of magic supply all. Lack of doctors in big cities in particular. Why is that partly because as country ages income grows, then the demand for healthcare is rapidly increasing to and for example, there's a Vanik research from nineteen ninety eight to twenty sixteen about twenty years time, the number of physicians in China increased by sixty percent six zero but the number of patient visits attended, by physicians and the number of impatient. Impatient. Admissions increased motor medically that number is two hundred seventy six percent and three hundred fifty five percent respectively. So the number of doctors increase by sixty percent, but the visits of hospital visits are impatient. Emissions that number increased by hun. Hundreds of of. That two hundred three hundred percent. So number increasing because yeah. Yeah. Aware of aware of the health the motivation to the health so in in, you know, the feel uncomfortable to see the doctor all they were go to the hospital have a health check right year health check in the past people were simply not aware of potential problems. But nowadays, you know, so people pin much more tension to the longevity to have a healthy life. So that's more hospital visits. So there's a strong sense of lack of doctors even in the urban area. But of course, for the second part, why on't those doctors going to to work in the areas. I think it's a largely because of the difference the gap between rich and the poor reputation the urban area and the country side, of course, still the gap. There is narrowing. But still there in the urban. Thing aerial. Of course, you have access to the ad quality education quality services and the convenience of you know. Of everything basically.

"China's central committee decided at a meeting Monday. It also said that the integrated development of the Yancey redoubt orgin must focus on the key elements of greater integration and high quality development to lead the gross at the whole onto river ignominy belt and East China, the meeting the meeting caught for better awareness of integrated development and putting virgins gross into the perspective of a unified strategy as well last development of a mordant economic system for more on those Sierras Xiaoyang was earlier joined by John gone, professor was university of international business and economics and Andy moc non resident fellow at the center for China and globalization. So Andy, first of all the delta region include Shanghai, and Jiangsu Jauzion and outweigh provinces. It's also accounted for around one force of the nation's total GDP. So what do you think is the feature of this region? The why is the economy? Economy of this region so much full of dynamism. Well, no, that's right. All it really is one of the most dynamic regions in China. So you mentioned it's about quarter of China's GDP it's about two point two trillion US dollars, which puts it between Italy and France, so on its own it would be considered A G seven country, you know, but that's only looking at it from today. But if we step back, I think it helps her audience understand. You're just exactly why the youngster river delta is so important. So first of all so the young river is the third longest in the world sixteen three hundred kilometers after the Nile the Amazon, it's the world's busiest inland waterway over seven hundred tributaries. So that in and of itself, I think should give one a sense of just how important area it is something like. Hundred billion people population wise, but what's even more interesting is why it's such a growth engine is when Disney was looking at setting up their theme park in China it shows Shanghai because within at one hour train ride. There are three hundred million people, which is almost the population of the United States. So I think that really just shows just how important this region is and just how much economic powered has at John A you are from this region. So tell us what do you think is the feature or regional feeder of the economy of this area? Well, this is very economic. In terms of manufacturing as well. As directing bashing the corridor between nine gene and Shanghai is probably the world's most traveled moot. There are so many trains running between these two cities, and so many cities medium size cities, like Souto, wishy consign- and town so to jail, you know. You know, this is a a cascade of cities, very, vibrant ply- developing things, you know, and most of the and also note, I most of the business in that region, private companies and also pulling companies one son is self probably is the most famous city. Tim's of my -tracting point track. Investments off electron IX based stuff is happening in that area. Is a matter of fact, Duke University has a campus nece quick UK decay us at you pre university. So it shows that it's a it's a very violent area. And but but but the thing is that most of develop as I see is between nineteen and shell hot. And I think in this plan that we've been talking about so incapacitates other areas particularly products that several cities along the young river in the products that are relatively nested. They're also very developed. Compared to the cities in Johnson province. There lasted up. I think this this strategic plan coastal for the degration of athlete province that part of we promised to be integrated more integrated into young t riverdell Terry, and Andy, so what do you think is the Shanghai's role in this regional integration Shanghai, of course, traditional as China's opening up window of financial center. And is the also has the first China pilot freightways on right? Yes. No. I think it it really is the the center and the largest city in in the region. It also happens to be one of the most densely populated cities as well. With almost three thousand people per square kilometer one thing I wanted to add on mentioned on the what's very interesting is that there's lots of the stork reasons..
