Guess what the Chinese are up to now?

Those evil, wicked, polluting Chinese … you’ll never guess what they’re doing now.

Under their five-year plans, state-owned industry has strict pollution quotas.

So what happens when they hit their pollution target before the end of five years?

They shut the factory down.

Can you imagine that happening anywhere in the West? Who in the UK, US, Canada – or South Africa – takes climate change that seriously?

Americans rate climate change as something like the 20th in their list of policy priorities.

65% of Chinese think climate change is the greatest threat to the world.

And it’s not just factories that get turned off when they hit pollution quotas. Even traffic lights get shut off!

This post is based on informal info gathered today – I will dig more while here in Mexico.
