Apocolypse Comes to China- This Year they Have a Record Number of Ecological Disasters

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 21, 2010


China has recorded more than 26,000 ecological disasters in this year so far. This number is outrageous and is ten times worse than they recorded last year. The problem is that htey are abusinng their country in a land grab that leaves the land and people most vulnerable. Actually this happened about 50 years ago during the ‘great leap forward’. This was an ill conceived plan to be world leaders in steel production, but it only lead to millions of Chinese dying as they could not feed themselves. It now appears that China is on a race to self destruction where the rich are sucking out all of the resources before escaping overseas with all of the cash and leaving a toxic land fill for the citizens.
