Humans are destroying their living environment; the amount of plastic waste dumped into oceans and landfills is horrendous; marine creatures are dying from ingestion of plastics and being entangled in plastic nets and plastic waste, to die a slow death.  Like many other countries, China is part of the problem!   The mountaiins of waste it generates are mind-boggling.   It has recently introduced a law banning the import of waste,  but  due to weak enforcement, smuggling of such waste is prevalent. Its previous law banning plastic shopping bags is a complete failure; the amount of such bags has not diminished, but on the contrary, has increased, clogging up drains, rivers and streams and fouling up oceans, and plastic bags can be seen fluttering on trees, and on overhead cables risking causing power blackout and stopping high speed trains.Chinese cities are choked with cars which emit poisonous exhaust fumes; and there is no law to stop motorists leaving their vehicles with engines running while stationary, an added source of air pollution.  Just across the border, in Hong Kong, the law on idling engines is strictly enforced! When is the Mainland going to learn?
China should do more, much more, to protect the environment!

Say 'sorry' for hijacking this thread again for ulterior purposes!

I agree with you that China is guilty but I also want to point out some other guilty countries just for perspective!
