I thought i would start this thread to post up some articles of how polluted the air, water, soil is here in China. No wonder all that can afford it, are buying land overseas.
Last night was Lunar New Year. In what was already a smoggy day, the local tradition of lighting massive amounts of fireworks has completed polluted nearly an entire country...
In these three App Snaps of my Air Quality Index App, you can see how the air quality worsened as the evening progressed into the next day. The higher the reading the worse the air quality, the higher the reading the darker the tag. We're the blue dot...the actual time the shot was taken is center top....Shanghai time. There are three main time frames for fireworks, after dinner, at midnight, 5 or 6 am the next day.
This is an easy fix, ban fireworks....unfortunately that would mean someone would need to enforce the new law. Enforcement doesn't work very well here for the simple reasons:
1.) You never know who that person is you are trying to charge with an offense
2.) Everyone has a price
Sad, but this country is doomed. If its not a massive property bubble implosion, then it will be a long painful death from starvation, malnutrition, respiratory problems....and Cancer.
