The growing season is short in Siberia, even with 'Global Warming' having an impact.
Water shortages ...

THE REAL PRIZE AND HEART OF ALL CURRENT GEOPOLITICAL CONTESTS - SIBERIA/NORTHEAST EURASIA.

Actually, Siberia contains thousands of miles of timberland, and thousands of miles of fertile plains, and just one growing season is enough to feed the entire populations of Russia and China combined.  It is not the barren perpetually frosted desert land of Western media.  It is the new frontier of the 21st Century, the Great Plains of Eurasia, and most importantly, it is the GEOGRAPHICAL PIVOT OF WORLD HISTORY, according to Mackinder, no less.  

Control of this heartland leads to such power and prosperity as to eclipse all past empires in human history.  The British know it.  Waterways, railways, highways, airplanes, and dirigibles are the ways to turn this "hinterland" into the Paradise of the World.  

China already possesses the headwaters of the Irtysh River that originates in Xinjiang, and flows through Kazakhstan into the Ob River in Western Siberia.  That only requires development by China, with due consideration for the water needs of Kazakhstan and Russia, in exchange for Russian and Mongolian considerations in the use of water from the Yenisei River which originates in Mongolia, courses through Central Siberia, and is also joined to the Ob River system by the now abandoned Ket-Kas Canal, the Kas River draining into the Yenisei River, while the Ket River drained into the Ob River.  This water is mostly untapped for agricultural purposes.  It is also of geopolitical importance in that Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan agreed to divide their empires along the course of the Yenisei River to the Sino-Russian border, confirming the thesis of Mackinder that this indeed is the Heartland and Pivot of History in the making.  It was first fully mapped by the British-Australian folks in 2001, further supporting the interest of world powers in its economic and political importance.  Finally, to the east of the Yenisei River is the Great Lena River that originates from Lake Baikal and flows directly north, use of which water may be better accessed from Lake Baikal directly, as some Chinese firms have proposed through building a water pipeline from Lake Baikal to northeast China.

Water was used for navigation by the Russians in their conquest and exploration of this vast stretch of virgin forests and steppes, by establishing east-west portages between the closest branches of the great rivers.  The coming of the railways obviated that need and also the accompanying exploration and development of the waterways of Siberia.  Now, the reverse is set to happen.  The development of raiways for transportation may hasten the development of the water resources of Siberia instead, not as a form of transport, but as a consumable resource in itself.  The export of Siberian water is unstoppable, and China is the first transit point and depot for this water, particularly for its northern arid regions.

THE HEARTLAND OF THE WORLD HAS BEGUN TO THROB . . .

China is now so polluted that food cannot be safely grown there... maybe they should now pollute S ...

Wrong again, Zglobal, water will be flowing from Siberia to China, so there is no possibility of China polluting Sibera.  Rather, China will become more agricultural in its production, lessening its dependence on industry, and thereby reducing its production of industrial waste and carbon emissions.  Thus, the race to Siberia is ecologically friendly to China, to its neighbors, and to the world.

Libya’s Great Man-Made River Project.  This incredibly huge and successful water scheme is virtually unknown in the West, yet it rivals and even surpasses all our greatest development projects.
Lybia was going to feed Africa, make it the continent's vegetable garden...needless to say,  NATO has conducted 9658 air strike sorties, averaging 46-47 strike missions per day for 207 days to stop this project...
not to forget: The West refuses to recognize that a small country, with a population no more than four million, can construct anything so large without borrowing a single cent from the international banks...
Same would happen to Siberia, if our WARmongers had their way.   Russia and China can not be pushed around like Gaddafi and Saddam...

THE FINAL BATTLE FOR MIDDLE EARTH

Thanks for the timely warning.  The real story of Libya, Africa's richest country, until it was attacked by the Islamic hordes funded and mentored by modern Lawrence's of Arabia, to its utter surprise, is something that shocks the human conscience.  After saying all is forgiven over the Lockerbie Incident, with Britain welcoming Libya's return to the fold of European civilization, it was given the treatment of utter depravity.  Trust British intentions over China, Tibet, Xinjiang and Hong Kong?  Think, rather than trust.  Britain successfully waged a Bolshevik Revolution in Russia to stop the Tsar's plans of developing Siberia to its fullest potential.  Russia now knows better than to play the political games devised in Europe.  They are not worth a minute of their time.  The so-called "Great Game" focused on Central Asia is really a misdirect.  Central Asia is the gateway to the Heartland of the World Island, which is northeast Eurasia, i.e., focused on Siberia, but is not the real heartland to be won in the end.  

Right now, a major conflict is shaping up at the foot of the Urals that will determine who will dominate the real Heartland of the World, which is in Siberia, since China is currently considered too weak to affect the final outcome, or too distracted by its border conflicts to think about the effect of Siberian development on the future of China.  But once the Dragon rises from its millennial slumber and speaks truth to the Great Bear, their backyard, the land of the Great Rivers and Mountains, the plains and forests of Siberia, will spring to life, for the first time since Pangaea was split into its many continents, to create a modern Atlantis, in culture, in technology, and in ecological maturity, like nowhere found in the world or in all human history.  

That is Middle Earth which Sauron and Saruman wish to conquer and pollute, spiritually and physically, though currently it is protected on the South by the Chinese and on the West by the Russians.  Although Siberia is the center of this Heartland, the actual heartland already includes parts of China, mainly in Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Qinghai, Tibet and Shaanxi, as well as its northeast provinces.  China and Russia together constitute Mackinder's Geographical Pivot of History.

It takes a British writer to capture the pathos of his country's drive to absolute power over all humanity.

"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, [Chinese whose emperors are called Sons of the Sky.]
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, [Russians who named the Ural Mountains after "stones".]
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, [The rest of teemng humanity.]
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. [Britain is damp, foggy and shadowy.]
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them [Darkness of their evil tendencies.]
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie "
