As Pollution Worsens in China, Solutions Succumb to Infighting
This article really struck me about the severity of the Chinese pollution problems. First off the fact that 13,000 dead diseased pigs were just carelessly dumped into a river that supplies drinking water to shanghai. this is just ridiculous to just dump them into the city's water supply. there is also the massive volcanic cloud of smog that's poisoning the populace. the article explains that Chinese official are now acknowledging the severity of the situation rather than ignoring it like they did before. I found it amusing when the new prime minister of china proclaimed, " show even greater resolve and make more vigorous efforts". it seems that this is example of procrastination of epic scale and only now are the Chinese ready to take action.
