China Responds to Damning Study About Environmental Damage

China has denied a U.S. think tank's report saying the country's extensive sand dredging and overfishing is to blame for widespread ecological destruction in the South China Sea. "Such a report is neither factual nor verifiable. Why are they so obsessed with harping on the same string?" Ji Lingpeng, spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in the Philippines, said Saturday of the article by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

The December report, "Deep Blue Scars: Environmental Threats to the South China Sea," blamed China for the partial or full destruction of over 21,000 acres of coral reef through devastating land reclamation, industrial fishing and clam harvesting practices in the contested sea, which boasts among the highest levels of oceanic biodiversity in the world.
