Where do I start, Oikos?

“Articles in the gray literature are not always wrong.”

Maybe SOMEBODY should check it out.

‘ It seems strange that you cavil at gray literature while citing a newspaper editorial as your source.”

The IPCC report is “gray literature”??

At least the newspaper article vetted its sources.

Answer by oikos
Articles in the gray literature are not always wrong. Most of it consist of government publications. As long as there is no pressure put on the agency from the White House (“W”e “W”on’t mention names.), the publications are usually as accurate at those in the peer-reviewed literature. It seems strange that you cavil at gray literature while citing a newspaper editorial as your source.

Asian people first originated from AFRICA? is this true?

Question by : Asian people first originated from AFRICA? is this true?
I read somewhere that Asians first originated in Africa:

“In Cavalli-Sforza’s genetic clustering work (1988) South Chinese join Southeast Asians in genetic clustering while the North Chinese associate with Koreans, Japanese, Ainu, Bhutanese and Tibetans in genetic clustering. Other Southeast Asians include Malaysian, Viet Muong, Thai, Western Indonesian and Philippine.

Xiao and Cavalli-Sforza (2000) find the boundary between Northern and Southern Mongoloids to approximate the Yangtze River, and suggest that their ancestors arrived from Africa via separate routes. Principal component analysis of gene frequencies of Chinese populations

Other scientists have suggested that the finding of sharp genetic differences between North and South China is an artifact of using an insufficient number of samples. However, Xiao and Cavalli-Sforza (2000) has a larger number of samples than previous studies.”

It says that they originated from a part of Africa, if this is true, Black people are our long lost brothers and sisters?

Q&A: Why do people think that China relies on the West so much?

Question by Mr Miyagi wants a kiss: Why do people think that China relies on the West so much?
It is a myth, People must have overlooked the fact that China mines 97% of all rare earth metals, these metals are used in nuclear weapons, cruise missiles, catalytic converters, laptops, wind turbines, engines and just about every new green tech there is among millions of other things. China has restricted exports to Europe and the USA, they have basically played a great game. China has in recent years diversified its investments and they are waiting for the USA to loosen its grip on the mideast and will move in like they have done with south Asia and Africa.
@ Scott – i guess you have not been following how China has diversified their economy – there is no need to get angry it is just the way they have played such a good game.

how much money was compensated to the people relocated on the yangtze river?

Question by CaseyCliche: how much money was compensated to the people relocated on the yangtze river?
from the three gorges dam project, i know that the people were forced to be relocated and were given money compensation, but that it was low, how much was it approximately?
actually, money has already been compensated. This summer I went to locations along the Yangtze river and spoke with families who were affected by the Three Gorges Dam, and they were compensated, they would not tell me however how much they were given, only to add that it was very little.

Best answer:

Answer by Sparrow
The Three Gorges Dam
One example is the dam failures of 1975 that devastated the Henan province and claimed over 200,000 lives but was only recently made known to the public. And while many still fear to offer public criticism against the government within China, it is notable that Dai Qing has been interviewed by numerous foreign press organizations including the BBC.
Li Boning head the Three Gorges Migration Office and plans to resettle and compensate the affected population into the local region. Initially it was hoped that a substantial amount of displaced people (between 1.1. & 1.9 million) would be transported to other provinces. This plan failed when receiving provinces refused to welcome them. Now they are relying on enough uncultivated land in the surrounding areas to provide for the farmers and the budget to afford them new housing and urban developments. Advocates of the dam say government investment and the creation of the Three Gorges Special Economic Zone will draw foreign investors and provide for those who have lost their livelihoods. Critics insist that the environmental capacity of the region is already overtaxed by excessive cultivation and deforestation. The government is accused of estimating too small a resettlement population and an inadequate budget to accommodate them. The loss of residential and industrial resources is far too great, critics say, for the government to compensate. They cite mass relocations undertaken in the past where migrants have resided in makeshift housing for years with insufficient employment and little compensation on account of bad planning and dishonest use of funds among other reasons.

Up to now no compensation has been fixed or funded.
