Chinese Pollution



An incredibly saddening set of photos taken of the environmental destruction taking place in China. This pollution is driven by a relentless desire for more profits, but also by my demand for new iphones, Macs, etc..

Yours too, none of us are innocent.

I'm not quite sure how the world can reverse this cycle. For China, perhaps it will require another socialist revolution. There is also a fascinating interview of the photographer, where he points out that to most of those affected, there has been no "economic development". The spoils of this destruction have gone to the few, while the poor masses are left to suffer.

That interview can be found here: "http://www.chinahush.com/2009/11/11/interview-with-lu-guang-the-photographer-of-pollution-in-china/

What are we going to do about this? What can be done?
