There is a fast way to find out if this is indeed an old story or if it is occurring right now.
If anyone knows where this is/was happening, we could get aerial/satellite photos and see if there are any spills, and or large volumes of fumes.
You are probably not going to get close up photos from China, but they should be close enough to see any large fumes, or even color changes in the ocean from the spills.
Has anybody tried this?edit on 20-6-2012 by ElectricUniverse because: (no reason given)

China gets its oil from every country the Western World "doesn't do business with" because of there appalling human rights in those countries, western corporations require strings attached to deals, such as oil revenue to go to alleviate the poor, environmental measures, the building of schools & hospitals and a stable country, China simply doesn't care about any of these things if there is a civil war within the country or the country's regimes that is massacring its own people, it will take the resources and make the problem 100% worst buy essentially funding those governments such as the ones in Africa, the deal it has with Iran is quite simple, it Veto's everything and anything against Iran from the security council prolonging UN sanctions it does the same with any other country it is raping for energy,
China simply does not care about the pollution & poisoning it does of this planet where ever it may doing business and this is largely due to it staggering growth in recent years, because it doesn't play by the book, if its own country is anything to go by, which is far in excess of that of Western country's could ever do because they have rules and regulations, China's policy is one more of ...erm it has no policy or regulations in place other than eat eat eat destroy destroy, China is in every sense of the word a parasite without a care for anything or anyone, it allows its city's to be basking in illegal levels of pollution, it allows its own rivers lakes & seas to be over spills for chemical & toxic waste production plants, it allows children to work in essentially in slave labour camps the list is endless all of which in any Western country would be illegal and condemned
Its only goal is to desperately climb the ladder and become No1 and clearly at a massive cost to the planet, if every country on the planet acted in this manner we would be well and truely F#*ked, expect much much more of the same in the next decade or two the worst is yet to come
Don't take my word for it, have a look for yourselves
This image, which was captured by NASA's Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor, dates back to January 2, 2000; it shows a layer of polluted air covering a large portion of southeastern China. The increased use of fossil fuels is largely to blame for the opaque haze. Given that China now tops the U.S. in total greenhouse gas emissions, just imagine what a satellite picture of the region would look like now...
You think that's air you're breathing?edit on 18-6-2012 by TritonTaranis because: (no reason given)

My god that makes me ill! China is one of the most censored countries in the world, it's not a surprise this isn't all over the news. This does need to spread though and quickly! Have you submitted these to any western media outlets?
