Extracts from the Green peace report:

China has some of the worst water pollution in the world9, with as much as 70% of its rivers, lakes and reservoirs being affected.10 China’s existing water shortage problem is worsening due to spiralling demand and the growing effects of climate change. Water pollution is further exacerbating the situation, with a quarter of the country’s population having no access to clean drinking water.11 Severe water shortfalls are predicted for many regions across China if no action is taken to tackle the problem.

Youngor Group Co Ltd is China’s largest integrated textile company, with world-scale fabric manufacturing, garment making and retailing capabilities. Established in 1979, it is based in the city of Ningbo near Shanghai, in the eastern province of Zhejiang. As well as manufacturing fabrics and clothing for multiple international brands, Youngor has its own product lines that include shirts, suits, trousers, casual jackets, ties and T-shirts, all officially recognised as leading national brands.In 2003, Youngor Group Co Ltd invested 1bn yuan ($147m US dollars) to build the Youngor Textile Complex in Ningbo, which includes “a large-scale production facility for items such as high-quality dyed yarn cloth, wool fabric, printed fabric, dyed fabric and knitwear”.

    The years 2013 and 2014 are loaded with planetary significance because some rare plantetary configurations occur during his periond.However since slow moving planets-Saturn,Jupiter and Rahu are involved-heir effects will be felt before actual formations and will be in effect even after 2014-15. These changes both negative and positive will cause deep changes in countries,organizations and society.

    If a court ruling for failure to predict the future is not overturned by wiser minds, it will be very harmful for public safety.

    In order to bring into proper focus the significance of correct predictions in science, I offer at the start a short survey of the most celebrated cases, and it is not by chance that almost all of them come from the domain of astronomy. These cases are spectacular and, with one or two exceptions, are well known.
