China Poisoning Their Land, Pissing off Africans and Causing the World to Hate Them

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 15, 2013


The following three stories encapsulate the presence of China in the world. The problem is that as a
Group they are shiftless, conniving and have such sketchy character that they do not even like
themselves. Now that Mao is pickled away, these people have been let off their leashes and proven
why 5000 years of seclusion from us was a good thing. People from China are insane.

Set aside the problems with despicable hygiene, morals and ethics, they just outright foul things up. In the
First article we see how they are not inly using up all their water, but poisoning the rest. Consider me
first to man the 50 cal guns when floods of Chinese eco refugees storm the shores of civilization
post eco apocalypse. If they had balls, they would demand change, but are too pussified to do so, so screw
them.

The second article speaks to the fact that aside from terror regimes such as Sudan, Syria and Iraq,
People from normal countries do not like these people.

The third focuses on the fact that China is trying to colonize Africa and raping the land and the people.
Africans said,’oh no you di’int’ and unleashed the brass jacketed whip ass and busted caps into some yellow
Ass.

What we end up with is the collective pain we all suffer now that China is open to the world.

Articles

“CHINA endures choking smog, mass destruction of habitats and food poisoned with heavy metals.
But ask an environmentalist what is the country’s biggest problem, and the answer is always
the same. “Water is the worst,” says Wang Tao, of the Carnegie-Tsinghua Centre in Beijing,
“because of its scarcity, and because of its pollution.” “Water,” agrees Pan Jiahua, of the Chinese
Academy of Social Sciences. “People can’t survive in a desert.” Wang Shucheng, a former water
minister, once said: “To fight for every drop of water or die: that is the challenge facing China.”

The national average hides an even more alarming regional disparity. Four-fifths of China’s water is in the south, notably the Yangzi river basin. Half the people and two-thirds of the farmland are in the north, including the Yellow River basin. Beijing has the sort of water scarcity usually associated with Saudi Arabia: just 100 cubic metres per person a year. The water table under the capital has dropped by 300 metres (nearly 1,000 feet) since the 1970s.

China is using up water at an unsustainable rate. Thanks to overuse, rivers simply disappear. The number of rivers with significant catchment areas has fallen from more than 50,000 in the 1950s to 23,000 now. As if that were not bad enough, China is polluting what little water it has left. The Yellow River is often called the cradle of Chinese civilisation. In 2007 the Yellow River Conservancy Commission, a government agency, surveyed 13,000 kilometres (8,000 miles) of the river and its tributaries and concluded that a third of the water is unfit even for agriculture. Four thousand petrochemical plants are built on its banks.

The water available for use is thus atrocious. Song Lanhe, chief engineer for urban water-quality monitoring at the housing ministry, says only half the water sources in cities are safe to drink. More than half the groundwater in the north China plain, according to the land ministry, cannot be used for industry, while seven-tenths is unfit for human contact, ie, even for washing. In late 2012 the Chinese media claimed that 300 corpses were found floating in the Yellow River near Lanzhou, the latest of roughly 10,000 victims—most of them (according to the local police) suicides—whose bodies have been washing downstream since the 1960s.

“First up the good news for China: around the world people increasingly see the country

as an emerging superpower, or indeed a superpower already. The bad news? They don’t

much like China. Public opinion, especially in the US, towards China is at an all-time low.

That’s according to a recent survey by the Pew Research Centre, which surprised Bruce Stokes, director of the global economic programme at the Pew Research Centre’s Global Attitudes Project. “This duality – seeing China as a superpower and yet the declining favour – seems to contradict itself, but maybe not. Maybe people see it, but they don’t like it.”

Listing the countries that like China and those that don’t sounds like schoolyard politics: the

Russians, Pakistanis, Chileans, Venezuelans, Brazilians and many in Africa are

all fairly well disposed towards China, while the US leads the pack of countries

with an increasingly negative perception of China, a club that includes Germany, South Korea,

the Philippines and Japan.

The Japan figure is especially low, with only 5 per cent having a favourable opinion.

“Twelve hundred Zambians gathered on a sunny morning in August of 2012 to protest at Collum Coal Mine,

which is located in a rural southern province and, at the time, was owned by five Chinese brothers.

They were angry about the working conditions in the mine: Collum had been cited several

times by Zambia’s government for labor violations, and miners said that they felt unsafe

working there. They were also upset about annual wage increases that they said amounted

to only a single Zambian kwacha—the equivalent of twenty cents.

The miners learned that a Chinese foreman had brought outside workers to replace them

during the protest, according to one of the protesting miners, twenty-eight-year-old

Robert Mundike. Mundike and his co-workers confronted the foreman at one of the

mine’s shafts and assaulted him. Then, according to Mundike, they beat up more

Chinese workers, along with Zambian miners who were still working even though the

protesters had told them not to.”
