Abstract Energy development can be understood to a large extent as a process of “creating disasters.” Although this type of typical “man-made disaster” can be predictable, the study of this paper on the related conditions in Shanxi Province shows that because of the intertwining of complex systemic political, economic, and social defects, the power for creating disasters became huge. The land of Shanxi was thus dismembered in a “shocking” way. At the same time, since it is difficult to develop an effective response, the disaster came to be remade over and over again, expanding the affected areas and the affected numbers of people. Redress for the rural residents who lost their means of survival is nowhere in sight. The “crisis of governance” has come to mean in effect a crisis of survival. How to eliminate such a crisis becomes thus an exceptionally urgent problem. (This article is in Chinese.) 摘要 能源开发在很大程度上可以理解为 “造灾” 的过程。尽管这种典型的 “人祸” 具有可预见性, 但是本文通过对山西省的相关状况的考察表明, 由于复杂的政治、经济和社会体制的诸多缺陷交织到一起, 使得造灾的动力巨大, 从而将山西的大地肢解得 “触目惊心、 山河破碎”。同时由于有效的救灾机制难以形成, 导致灾害不断地扩大再生产, 受害区域和人数增加。而当对那些丧失了生存基础的农村居民的救助遥遥无期, “治理危机” 实质上意味着生存危机, 如何消除这种危机成为异常紧迫的问题。
