|XINING Authentic Bobby Ryan Jersey , Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Swelling lakes on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, a notable sign of global warming, are threatening the safety of the world's highest railway, according to climate and ecological experts.
One flooded lake is now only 8 km away from a section of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway in the depopulated area of Hol Xil Nature Reserve, according to the latest satellite monitoring by the Qinghai Provincial Academy of Meteorological Sciences.
Liu Baokang, engineer with the academy's remote-sensing and ecological evaluation center, said several lakes in the nature reserve have been overflowing since 2011 after receiving an increasing volume of melted snow from glaciers on the plateau Authentic Chris Wideman Jersey , known as the "roof of the world."
Liu said the center's research shows that the lakes have become a threat to the railway's roadbed and roads on the Qinghai-Tibet Highway as well as important oil pipelines, cables and power facilities that run through the region.
Sitting 4,600 meters above sea level, the 45,000 square km Hol Xil nature reserve is China's largest unpopulated area and is home to wild yaks and endangered Tibetan antelope.
Major lakes in the reserve, namely Zhuonai Lake, Qusay Lake and a salt lake Authentic Mike Condon Jersey , are all holding water at historically high levels.
Following a dyke breach in 2011, water has flowed from Zhuonai Lake and fed into Qusay Lake. The latter's overflow has resulted in swelling of the salt lake downstream, which has more than tripled its 2011 size, endangering the rail line.
Wang Xinwen, a spokesman with the Qinghai-Tibet Railway Co., said the company has "prepared a comprehensive set of contingency plans to cope with an emergency." But he declined to give details of measures to be taken if the rail track were to become submerged in lake water.
Wang affirmed that, so far Mike Hoffman Jersey , no harm to the railway's foundation from the flooding lake has been monitored.
The railway boasts a length of 1,956 km at an altitude of over 4,000 meters, connecting northwest China's Qinghai Province and Lhasa, capital of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region.
Data from the provincial weather bureau showed that temperatures in the Hol Xil region rose by an average of 0.38 degrees Celsius every ten years.
"Rising temperatures have accelerated the melting of glaciers. Increased precipitation in the region has also contributed to the expanding lakes," said Liu.
He said lake flooding has also triggered changes in the landscape.
Rangers patrolling the region this year discovered that a gorge, which appeared after the 2011 dyke breach on Zhuonai Lake Jean-Gabriel Pageau Jersey , is blocking the migration route of a herd of about 3,000 Tibetan antelope. The animal has lately grown accustomed to giving birth by the lakeside instead of travelling to its traditional pasture for breeding, which has affected vegetation in the area as the antelopes graze on nearby plants.
"This has accelerated desertification by the lakeside," said Zhao Xinlu, director of the Zhuonai Lake Conservation Station.
The provincial government has organized meteorological, hydrological and environmental protection experts to closely monitor flooding on the lakes.
Hillary Clinton takes responsibility for her devastating loss to Donald Trump in her tell-all book about the 2016 presidential race, but she also blames Barack Obama Craig Anderson Jersey , Bernie Sanders, Vladimir Putin and others, published excerpts show.
In her campaign chronicle "What Happened," set for release on Sep 12, the veteran Democrat acknowledges her own role in her defeat, writing: "It was my campaign. Those were my decisions."
But she also points the finger at a long list of political rivals, apparent allies Ryan Dzingel Jersey , and morning television hosts, and signals that much of what happened in 2016 was outside her control.
Sanders, a socialist-leaning senator who challenged her during the Democratic primaries, resorted to "innuendo and impugning on my character" in attacks that caused "lasting damage" and disunity, the 69-year-old Clinton wrote, according to excerpts reported by US media on Thursday and Friday.
Regardless of how "progressive" her own policy proposals were, "Bernie would come out with something even bigger Zack Smith Jersey , loftier and leftier, regardless of whether it was realistic or not," she added.
Sanders offered a terse response. "I.e., Bernie Sanders just stole all of Hillary Clinton's ideas. Does anybody really believe that?" he said on MSNBC.
Clinton also trained her frustrations on Obama, who backed her as his successor, saying a stronger, televised response by the then-president to Russian meddling in the election might have helped her.
"Maybe more Americans would have woken up to the threat in time. We'll never know Tom Pyatt Jersey ," she said according to CNN, which obtained a copy of the book.
Clinton also criticized former vice president Joe Biden, who campaigned with her, and former FBI director James Comey.
She blamed a frustrated electorate for falling for Trump instead of embracing her more traditional campaign, writing that the billionaire businessman ran "a reality TV show that expertly and relentlessly stoked Americans' anger and resentment."
Women voters apparently were also partly to blame.
Clinton wrote that while she was impressed with the massive anti-Trump demonstrations in the days after his January inauguration, "I couldn't help but ask where those feelings of solidarity, outrage and passion had been during the election."
Putin - and Russia's apparent meddling in the 2016 election - also took hits Bobby Ryan Jersey , with Clinton accusing the Russian president of holding a "personal vendetta" against her, according to Vanity Fair.
