China’s massive growth is costing the health of its people and environment? Pollution is an issue which the authorities would rather hide. But the problem is becoming dangerous and it can no longer be ignored.

China has been sacrificing its environment and its people to feed its ever-growing economic powerhouse. The production of computers, cars, and other goods, all at prices below anywhere else in the world, has driven the Chinese boom relentlessly on. Now though China is finally paying the price. “I think they knew it was poisonous to humans but if they used another chemical our output would not have been increased”. These are the words of one worker in the computer industry who has seen her and her colleagues sacrificed to produce cheap computers for the rest of the world. However, it is not just the workers who are suffering; China’s environment has been badly damaged. One community living next to an incinerator, which consumes China’s growing waste, claim their community has been savaged by pollution. “No-one knows who will be the next to die.” Some Chinese have been attempting to arrest damage, “I tell the bosses of some companies that you might make money as big as mountains of gold and silver, but, if all the money is made from the loss of green rivers and blue mountains your future generations will curse us, “, but is this all too little too late?

  1. China should be worry about their country instead of spending all that money in Asian seas and building 50+ ghost cities.

  2. China is desperately trying to control what information the public can get about pollution
    what else can you expect from a communist gov

  3. The great paradox of Chinese people. Some of them drive around with a Ferrari but their children must do sport activity with a breathing mask.
    Their way of conceiving the life is just shameful. They will regret soon, they are doomed to failure.

  4. We see this in US cities such Chicago, Flint Michigan and others place in US. America and the west are pollute as much as China.

  5. The whole china being the biggest polluter is just propaganda, the per capita is what matters, because it affects and comes from life quality, which is a more fair estimate. China is in the 43~ place, usa is at 11~ in pollution per capita.
    globalization just brings it to the equal point

  6. can you fuckers shut up.
    theres two ways to grow economy.
    one is by making more mouths. the other is trading per unit of x input for more outputs of y.
    we dont need more fucking mouths.
    and stop with your hypocrisy.

    whos enjoying these laptop, iphone, computers? u, dumass. so just enjoy the suffering of other human beings.
    unless u want to pay 20x more for your gadgets for pollution-free biodegradable items.

    anyhow yeah. if 1/3 of the world died off, we'd be much better.

    btw chinese people. yes its your fault.
    get off your fucking asses. you have 1 billion people. if you cant assassinate those at the top. i will laugh. lol.
    how did you think western democracies arose? lots of wars and blood.
