Those pictures are even worse than the ones I saw from the Communist countries in Eastern Europe.

Have the Chinese executed the photographer yet?

No matter how cruel I may be , no matter how evil it may seem - the truth is cold and chinese DESERVE this. They destroyed much more than they think of. If they would have been in peace with nature then they wouldn't be in this situation. But for greeding nature's resources endesly this may be a lesson to them.

America & Europe use to polute the world under begining of the industrial era (and still is). And on this foundation we have built the infrastructure in our modern society. But when it comes to third world countries aka developing nations, we have the enviromental problem we created in the first place. To these developing nations, we want enviromental regulation, we in the west say that they have to use wind and solar energy for industries, beacuse we are using it. Well, easy for us to say, we already have the infrastructure to do so. And I bet that majority of the big poluting companies in China is owned by corporations from the US & Europe. This is the downside of capitalism. This is just the begining of the end, it's gonna get a lot worse than this. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Beacuse the rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer.

Just look at the Chinese who have chosen to take the rough road for fulfillment. Look at the picture that shows a 15 year old kid working for 16 yuan a day. He looks dirty like an American miner or field worker. He is making ONLY 16 yuan a day. Wait a minute.... 16 yuan..... 1 yuan is worth about $7 American..... so...... hold on..... he is making $112 a day for manual labor. That sounds about right. You would be surprised to find out how many people in America are working for $112 or less a day.

..eeeh what! I don't know how you calculate?

1.00 CNY (China Yuan Renminbi ) = 0.146457 USD
16.00 CNY (China Yuan Renminbi ) = 2.34331 USD

$2.34 For a days work.

I can't even buy a loaf of bread at the supermarket for that sum of money!!!!!!!

Rich won't get 'richer' , because the poor will eventually start to hunger for money and the rich.. will be murdered. But all this won't happen to all , for an ice age is coming. Those who wish to live in it will live where they do now , and those who don't will pour into the developing contries and eventually the north (ice-age land) will become the liveable one.

History keeps repeating itself because most people are still under the flawed assumption that corporate capitalism is the way to go. They simply cannot come to grips that they have been forcefully mislead by big-bucks, western media.

In a way I don't blame them but they have to wake-up sooner or later before we cause irreversable damage. Capitalism is all about PROFIT! Socialism is partly about profit and partly about socialising. Communism is all about socialising.

What is socialising? It's not people bs'ing at a dinner party, its about the government and people helping one another live a good, comfortable life. Socialists and communists put profit SECOND, and the quality of life FIRST!

Two wrongs don't make a right. Just because the west were polluters in their time of growth does not mean the Chinese should follow suite. The Chinese should know better and have the capability (but not the balls or the intelligence) to learn from the mistakes of the past.

We know that Chinese Authorities care not one jot for their population. If they did, then they would take a more enlightened path.

restored from the archives.........

actual photos showing where a sizeable amount of contaminated fluoride comes from... people still aren't aware of that

look at number 11, Fluorine industry

11. 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

And sadly there are too many people in the "west" who can't afford to pay for products that are NOT made in China..

Do I pay $150 for a shirt made in Canada, or $50 for a shirt imported from China? Which one leaves me with more money to pay my gas bill to get to work?
