According to one World Bank report, 16 out of 20 of the world's worst cities for air pollution are found in China and Linfen has the highest levels of pollution. This city, in China's Shanxi Province, is at the centre of the nation's coal industry. Here, emissions from vehicles and industry have created an atmosphere where people literally choke on coal dust. High levels of pollutants such as fly ash, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide and arsenic are taking their toll on the greater city's three million residents: clinics here see high levels of bronchitis, pneumonia and lung cancer and lead poisoning in children is alarmingly common.

Around the world, an estimated 19 million people are at risk from lead smelting operations while either using ore or recycling scrap metal. Tianying in China's Anhui province is one of the centres of the nation's lead mining and processing industry, and accounts for approximately half of Chinese production. Small-scale operations there have been notorious for disobeying regulations, which has resulted in lead concentrations in the air and soil to being 8.5 and 10 times higher than the national health standard. The health of 140,000 people is at risk, and many residents are reported to suffer the effects of lead poisoning, which the Blacksmith Institute says includes "lead encephalopathy, lower IQs, short attention spans, learning disabilities, hyperactivity, impaired physical growth, hearing and visual problems, stomach aches, irritation of the colon, kidney malfunction, anaemia and brain damage."

I guess many of the forum members on here like SMITHE, lau guan dim and robert69 are from Tianying.

Zionism

Your Zionist masters have created this situation.Ask them what they intend to do about it.And before you gloat any further consider how nuclear weapons sites have poisoned the USA and the UK.In the Sellafield complex in the UK there is a pond so radioactive that a couple of hours on it's shores will kill you.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

If there is an issue with pollution rather than hiding the issue, pretending its not there or indeed reacting with hostility why not discuss solutions?

I don't think it should be considered a competition as to who has the worst pollution record - every nation needs to address their own issues.

Solution

The only solution is to move away from materialism,mammon worship,consumerism and so on and back towards traditional ways of living.However the philosophy of our Zionist masters does not permit this.Unfortunately there is no hope.

I wouldn't disagree that the whole capitalist system and the need to support ever increasing consumption and GDP growth are most of the problem. Matched with an unsustainable growth in population the planet is going to be a mess.
