China’s Pollution Everybody’s Problem
China's over-population driven pollution frenzy [ark] threatens the entire planet. Frankly, the fault extends to the already over-developed world which exported their pollution to benefit from cheap labor. In the process a global despoiler of unprecedented magnitude has been created; which says a lot, give Europe and U.S. history of ecological imperialism [search].
China is an environmental disaster [search]. China is now a fourth desert and water scarce, most forests are gone so it imports illegal timber, it goes through 200 million tons of coal annually causing soaring carbon emissions [ark], and increasingly it brings these problems to the region and World with an insatiable appetite for resources. And China is a brutal totalitarian dictatorship; an enemy of not only global ecological sustainability, but equally of freedom and justice.
Destroying the Earth is not a poverty alleviation program. In China we see the end of the world as over-population and demand for cheap consumer crap overwhelms the world's faltering ecosystems. Given the world consumes its products and is faced with a wave of Chinese pollution, China's pollution is everybody's problem. Global ecological collapse starts in China.
