Li's family planted 50 to 60 mu of red dates, but after they used the water from the ditch to irrigate the plants, many of them died. Sweet corn also won't grow here. The government moved the villagers to the Hongshiwan Mine Relocation building. They have to travel 2 to 3 km to get to their land. Many of them are willing to build new homes in the old place to be closer to their land.Locations:Asia-China-NingxiaDate:1 Apr, 2014Credit:© Lu Guang / GreenpeaceMaximum size:4896px X 3266pxKeywords:Agricultural land-Agriculture-Climate (campaign title)-Coal-Coal mining-Day-Farmers-Industrial landscapes-Irrigation-KWCI (GPI)-Land pollution-Local population-One person-Outdoors-People-Power stations-River pollution-Toxics (campaign title)-Victims-Water pollutionShoot:Coal Projects Threaten the Yellow River in ChinaDocumentation of damage to the Yellow River, caused by the rampant expansion of coal industrial projects. The Yellow River is one of the longest and most important, fragile and iconic waterways in China. Greenpeace investigations have revealed an open-pit coal mine undermining the embankment of the Yellow River in Wuhai City, Inner Mongolia China. Massive cluster of coal processing plants are operated at dozens of industrial parks spanning hundreds of miles along the Yellow River. All these projects are highly energy, water and carbon intensive, and discharge huge amounts of waste water and flue gas.Greenpeace calls for an immediate halt of operations at this and other coal industrial projects that threaten the Yellow River, and urges the Chinese authorities to speed up the upgrade to a more reasonable energy mix with more ambitious boosts to the renewable energy sector.
