Compare the response to the quake in the 80's that the world never heard about from China, and it only killed over 200,000 people.China is changing. Chinese public works are also bringing China forward to the 21st century. No country in the world is spending as much on infrastructure as China, and it is this spending on infrastructure which has fueled China growth. Take India, also a huge population and yet it lacks the infrastructure to deliver as much as China. Before China had amoung the worst infrastructure in the world, so it had the most to improve.Heaviest rain in 60 years. It would be like pointing the finger at the UK for shutting down London Airport for having its first snow in 20 years and having no snowploughs handy to keep the airport open. China has made changes to infrastructure that reduce flooding, no doubt they will learn from this to improve them further. Yes there was flooding, but maybe the question should be how little there was? Compare the lack of flooding compared to that 60 years ago with much more population and one can see the media bias because it is China. Take the wet weather in New Orlens in the US, they had a natural disaster flooding there to. Weather plays no favorites.
