In Shenmu County, Yulin, Shanxi province, which has been one of the “Top 100 Prosperous Counties in China”, there are many so called “coal bosses”, who own luxury cars and assets worth more than hundreds of millions. However, the coal industry in this area has been declining. Coal mining and the use of water resources by the coal industry has damaged the ecosystem and in recent years one tributary of the Yellow River flowing through this area has suffered flow disruption. Crops production in some places dropped, reservoirs dried up, ground collapsed and walls of houses cracked forcing villagers to move out.

中国的煤水矛盾 
陕西省榆林市神木县,曾经跻身全国百强县。当时该县有很多被称为“煤老板”的当地富豪,他们开豪车,身价超过数亿万。如今随着煤炭经济下滑,伴随着多年粗放式的能源开采,造成严重的生态环境问题,流经该区域的一条黄河支流断流,农作物产量锐减,水库枯竭,地面塌陷,村中墙裂房倒,这些都迫使村民不得不弃村离去。
