The Most Anti-China Article You’ll Read Today
At Foreign Affairs there’s an article, sub-captioned “The Superpower That Is Poisoning the World”, on China’s environmental problems. It recaps how China is poisoning its air, water, and soil and exporting its environmental problems to its neighbors and the world. Read it and weep.
Back in 2005 I wrote a series of analysis pieces on the problems that face China and environmental degradation was one of those I considered. At the time I surmised that China was capable of dealing with that and the other major problems it faces. Since 2005 China has done very little about any of the problems I considered back then, the problems have gotten worse, and, frankly, time is running out.
