Next time you screw in one of those horrible Chinese spiral compact fluorescent light bulbs please think of these pictures.
That's how "GREEN" you are being by using those things.
You're really not saving the planet. You're helping to destroy it. At best you're helping out the local utility company who will be peak metering you soon anyway to make their profits.

Horrible pollution photos from China, one of the fastest growing economies in the world. This is the dark side of this growth, the side which this emerging superpower does not want you to see:
Heck, even the keyboard I write this on was made in China..
. Jiangsu province Changshu City Fluorine Chemical industry land sewage treatment plant (江苏省常熟市氟化学工业园污水处理厂) was responsible for collection and processing of the industrial sewage. However they did not, the sewage pipe was extended 1500 meters under the Yangtze River and releasing the sewage there. 2009 June 11
Villagers from Kang village in Linfen City, Shanxi Province (山西省临汾市下康村) due to long-term consumption of the polluted water contaminated by industrial waste, there were 50 people who have cancer and cerebral thrombosis. 64-year-old Wang Baosheng got ill since 2003, he has fester all over his body so he cannot go to bed and lying face down on the edge of the bed each day.

Those pictures were immensely disturbing and emotionally draining. It's shameful beyond words that there are people who are forced to live in such conditions. I'll count my blessings that I'm a US Citizen.

Why is everybody bitching? There have been MILLIONS of Chinese pulled out of poverty BECAUSE of us buying all their cheap crap. It's a paradox or a catch 22 if you will. I mean my god this is a country of over a billion people. I hate the Chinese. They are a disgusting group of people that will do anything to make money and supress their people. I hate them even more because they are the world's biggest polluters. Don't feel sorry for them.....that's ridiculous. And sure as hell don't blame the American consumer for all of the problems in China. We are not the only country buying their crap. And we have some of the best environmental regulations in the world. A couple hundred million chinese need to die off. That's the stark reality of the direction the planet is heading in. Millions upon millions of human beings need to die. Can you stomach that? That's real life despite what all the liberal morons want us to believe.

The first picture that came up was pollution in CHINA.
Me thinks there is a bit of hypocrisy and denial going on here!
It is there country. If they want to poison themselves let them have at it.
