What a stupid saying.....China isn't chasing anyone...it is using todays technology to the best advantage for its people and nation.

One serious side effect------ poor planning and not learning from mistakes of others. The desire to get rich quick and fix problems later. Western countries have proven this is a poor and deadly approach for a society to grow-some Eastern scholars and researchers apparently agree.

Severe pollution has slashed an average of five and half years from life expectancy in northern China, as toxic air has led to higher rates of stroke, heart disease and cancer. These are the findings of a landmark study conducted by an international team of researchers, including academics from China's most prestigious universities, published this month in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The researchers found that severe air pollution has cost the 500 million people living north of China's Huai River during the 1990s more than 2.5 billion years of aggregate life.



It is never too late--but the question is AT WHAT COST IS LOSS OF LIFE ACCEPTABLE? Military strategists and planners have there own rules.
Just because the population of a country exceeds an acceptable population growth level (India for example) it doesn't make it acceptable to use the marvel of technology and industry growth as tools to diminish an out of control population growth by attritition due to industry growth.

As matter of fact, during the past decades, the life expectancy for males increased from 40 years to 70 years. Isn't it shocking? It is the period when the pollution has been the worst, since coal is used widely in CHina.
