Scientists believe that the impact of an asteroid only a mile wide would be globally catastrophic.

China's lost girls( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To curb the country's exploding population, China limits most families to one child, or in certain circumstances, two children. Due to cultural, social, and economic factors, traditional preference leans toward boys, so girls are often hidden, aborted or abandoned. As a result, thousands of girls end up in orphanages in China. Today, more than one-quarter of all babies adopted from abroad by American families come from China- and nearly all are girls. National Geographic and Lisa Ling join some of these families as they travel to China to meet their new daughters for the first time. Along this emotional journey, Lisa Ling shares in the joy of these growing families and also witnesses firsthand China's gender gap, examines its roots, and discusses its possible repercussions"--Container
