I'm not sure how much blame China can be handed on this since they are literally playing catch up to what the world has already done before them.
They're literally retracing the Industrial Revolutions, compressing the timeline by at least 50% and doing this all with a population 4x's what we
have TODAY, let alone back when our nation went through the dirtiest decades of 'progress'.
Now I dearly wish China would have thought this out a bit better, but it's too late now. In the beginning, it seems to me, they could have used the
lessons of hindsight by other nations and skipped the whole coal and icky period the rest of the world suffered through as trial and error to get to
where we are now.....and so much further yet to go, eh?
Now though, they're dead smack in the middle of the 50's or 60's by relative comparison with the manpower and force of technology to leap a decade
every 2-3 years of real time it seems. They'll be caught up to us in about 12 years at this rate.....but ..(cough cough) Good Lord... 40 equivalent
years of learning pollution is a killer will BE a killer to so many, it's really a crime. Still..... How do you STOP once in the middle? If we knew
that, we wouldn't still be well in the dirty phase ourselves.
