While our only home called Earth is rotting away because of pollution, governments and countries have the courage to spend overall globally trillions of dollars on military "protecting the country"-why? It doesn't matter if you combat feminists, racism, rights and laws if we do nothing and stand around watching how Earth falls apart we will go equally extinct make it rich or poor, white or black, tall and short, skinny or fat, smart or dumb we will be doomed to extinction if no serious action is taken.

Did you know that Mexican pollution is worse than China? Today all over China the Aqi Air quality index ranges from 100-175. Mexico 150-890 . 890 aqi in Aguascalientes. Why is USA obsessed with China when your southern neighbors are worse.

China had a plan to grow exponentially using cheap coal and now they built up their economy they have the money to clean it up and and spending billions in renewables and ev cars. Unfortunately, China will beat the US in conversion to green technology and will probably the largest producer of solar panels and ev cars

This kind of thing is the reason that I get upset when I see couples having more than 2 or 3 children in this day and age. The world can't support any more people, it's disgusting to live this way. We must start focusing on quality of life and keeping our cities clean and habitable.

Although BBC is 100% biased, they are not wrong about this polluting shit, apart from the 1 million some death there. I mean I'm from Beijing and my parents are constantly stopping me from returning home so their grandchildren wouldn't grow up with such shit quality of air.

India is a lot more polluted, why doesn't the BBC report on that? On a very very bad day in Beijing, PMI 2.5 can reach 500, but in Dehli, it hit 1400, in fact, the US embassy there said it was literally off the scale.
BBC is actually feeling happy about Chinese people suffering smog. The UK wants China to suffer war and unrest, and then they could invade China again like what they did in 1840 which was the beginning of China going downhill.
