David McNeill: China: Mind-numbing damage

From The Independent Online:

It's the nightmare scenario that environmentalists dread. What happens when China's 1.3 billion people (and counting) get the cars and air conditioners that people in the West take for granted?

Whither the planet when China's income per capita, currently about $1,000 (£570), starts approaching the UK's $26,000? Once the preserve of science-fiction, this scenario now looms alarmingly real.
