China's Econamic Dominance Based On Licence To Pollute PDF Print E-mail

posted by Chinainformation   

China's factories provide low cost products such as computers and cars to the rest of the world. But critics claim such economic progress takes a heavy toll, polluting the country's air, land and rivers.

Even though China ordered more than 2,000 factories to be shut down last August due to pollution, inefficiency or unsafe working conditions, the country remains a major polluter.

Pollution from factories has poisoned potable water supplies and has even led to deaths among the surrounding populace.

On this edition of 101 East, we ask if China is sacrificing its environment and people to feed its ever-growing economic powerhouse.

Like the Soviet Union before it, much of China’s supposed boom is illusory — and just as likely to come crashing down


This ethos of corruption is captured in a popular song in China, I want to marry a government official, whose lyrics explain why an official makes for a good matrimonial catch: “He has power, a car and house; He only needs to drink tea and read the newspaper during work; He never spends his own money on cigarettes and alcohol; He can get free food...

There is a saying among Chinese people in the last few decades: "There are things that are beyond your imagination, but there is no evil that the communist regime has not done."

Many Chinese realize that it is long overdue for the Nobel Prize to be awarded to a Chinese, as the bravery, sacrifice and struggle of many Chinese dissidents is simply outstanding, but there is complexity behind Liu Xiaobo and the Nobel Prize.

As a well known Chinese dissident, Liu Xiaobo's...

“They (the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will not release Liu unless the Nobel Peace Prize is granted.”

Early this year, I was with a group of old friends having dinner. A communist party insider in the group said to us: “If the Nobel Peace Prize is not granted, they (CCP) will not release Liu Xiaobo!”  I took this statement as a joke, and did not even bother to think about it. But now, the result of this surprises me!

Liu Xiaobo is connected with...

--- How Ancient Chinese found harmony in both.

20 years ago, it was quite a ‘revelation’ to me to learn that many people in western society understood that, “Buddhism” describes the system of the universe and the way in which human beings live to echo the rhythm of the nature.

On the other hand, almost all Chinese people (in my generation) in China think that Buddhism exists to allow them to beg fortune from gods and ask for a “son” to be born in the family by...

My Experience Of Explaining the Truth To Chinese People

It was not a long drive from Sydney to Canberra. Arriving in Canberra, at the front of the Chinese Embassy (CE), I faced  a scene that many Canberra residents have become very familiar with in the last seven years: a couple of banners, and a few Falun Gong practitioners.

I settled myself to do some Falun Gong exercises, which allowed me to release some tension from the trip and also gain some...

Remarks delivered at Tiananmen protest, opposite Chinese Consulate, 42nd Street/12th Avenue, New York City, June 4, 2010

It is the 21st anniversary of a crime against humanity -- the Tiananmen Square massacre.

I believe that Tiananmen is the issue which separates the humans from the neo-humans; and unfortunately, the neo-humans held the upper hand for the past 21 years.

China's pro-democracy movement is a bright light...

According to Bloomberg Businessweek, a labor shortage is trimming margins for exporters, who are moving to Vietnam, India, and elsewhere.
