Image for @everydayclimatechange Desertification in China #3 Villagers ride a motorbike through a sandstorm in China’s western Ningxia Province. As the spring winds blow, dry and degraded topsoil is picked up and thrown into the air, carried in immense clouds of sand and dust. Each year, the spring sandstorms that plague northern China, originate in the western and northern desert regions of the country. Moving east, the sandstorms occasionally descend on China’s capital Beijing. In recent years, these same sandstorms have been known to be carried on to South Korea, Japan and even as far as the west coast of the United States. This coming series attempts to provide you with glimpses into China’s struggles with desertification and its inescapable link to a warming planet. #Asia #china #desert #earthtoparis
