China

An excellent New York Times article with movie on China's great uprooting.

Very useful for exploring the impact of rural-urban migration, particularly when it becomes part of a national policy rather than through personal choice.

Critics call the plan 'warehousing': as if people are commodities themselves...
Natural processes are being accelerated, potentially at a catastrophic rate...
If farmers are relocating, where will the food supply for these millions of people come from ??
Some big questions that students could grapple with...
Definitely a future geography issue...
