China (partly to it's own fault and partly to weather patterns) is becoming a huge desert. The place where nobody lives is where the huge desert is.

They nerd more CO2 to create greenery. Apparently they're helping themselves out with that.

The west of China is mostly Tibet, not exactly hospitable territory. High up in the mountains, far away from the sea, bad infrastructure, language/culture differences, etc.
