The pace of development in China is astonishing, and it is assaulting the natural world at an alarming rate. China has become the planet's largest home of endangered wildlife, its top importer of tropical trees, and its biggest emitter of greenhouse gases. This growth has impacts worldwide: in Brazil, farmers clear swathes of the Amazon to plant soybeans for the Chinese market; in India, poachers hunt tigers and elephants to feed Chinese demand; and in the United States, clouds of mercury and ozone drift earthward after trans-Pacific journeys. This insightful book looks at how an ascending China has surpassed the United States as the worst-polluting superpower. It argues that China's 21st-century legacy will be determined not by political alliances, but by how quickly its growth degrades the environment -- and whether it can stem the damage. Combining in-depth reporting with scientific research and a wide range interviews, The Devouring Dragon shines a spotlight on how China has put our planet's forests, wildlife, oceans, and climate in jeopardy, multiplying the risks for everyone.
