As China continues to face scrutiny for its poor air quality ahead of this year's Olympics, the country is dealing with an even greater environmental challenge. Water pollution and scarcity continue to be the leading environmental concerns for this growing country. During this OnPoint, Jennifer Turner, director of the China Environment Forum at the Woodrow Wilson Center, gives her on-the-ground perspective of the water issues affecting China. She discusses the programs that are in place to help mitigate the problem and explains how global warming could exacerbate the issue. Turner also addresses the impact of poor water quality on the health of the Chinese, particularly those living in rural areas.
