If you think so you probably don't understand English. where did I say only CHina produces plastic ...

Are you saying only China is not able to keep plastic pollution at bay? Why have you not mentioned other countries too? We are talking about the Pacific region and European countries are not in this region. You have the habit of being bias in your arguments and bringing irrelevant information to support your arguments.

China's pollution problems have been around for ages.  Let's hope the recently concluded Two Sessions is not another talk shop!  After the talking must come the action!

"It is difficult to think of a promise made by China's Government that they haven't kept"

You sound very optimistic godfree!  Air, land and water pollution has been around for so long despite much talk to tackle them in past sessions!  Let's hope it's for real this time!

Those comments are uninformed. Why does a poster comment on what the U.S.A. is failing to do as a  ...

""Europe is leading the world in pollution control, no one else is.""

Little monkey, is this what you call "leading the world"?

---------------------------------------------
The 2013 European Air Quality Report issued by the European Environmental Agency has revealed that tiny airborne particles are still posing a significant threat to peoples health and the environment across Europe and air pollution needs to be measured and reduced as a matter of urgency.

The European Air Quality Report did however state that the emissions of a number of pollutants, including sulphur dioxide, lead and carbon monoxide had already been significantly reduced since the last report.

The executive director of the EEA, Hans Bruyninckx stated that considerable progress had been made over the last decade to reduce the visible signs of air pollution and smog that riddled some of Europe’s larger Cities. However, he added: “Air pollution is causing damage to human health and ecosystems. Large parts of the population do not live in a healthy environment, according to current standards. To get on to a sustainable path, Europe will have to be ambitious and go beyond current legislation.”

The latest report concludes that more than 90 per cent of people living in cities across Europe are exposed to levels of air pollution that are above global guidelines set by the World Health Organisation. Air pollution across Europe is still high enough to damage both human health and the environment. So more needs to be done.

Vehicles, industry, agriculture and homes are all contributing to air pollution in Europe with particulate matter and ground-level ozone being the main sources for concern. However the problem doesn’t just arise in major cities, as some rural areas also have significant levels of air pollution, the report notes.

Between 2009 and 2011, up to 96 % of city dwellers were exposed to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) concentrations above WHO guidelines and up to 98 % were exposed to ozone (O3) levels above WHO guidelines.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
