Global Warming, or Climate Change as it is now called, is not a problem.
Earth’s climate has always been changing and will continue to do so,
regardless of what anyone does. Pollution, however, is often a problem and in
China the pollution problem has grown to the point where it could collapse
Here are a couple of Youtube videos that show the horrendous smog that
engulfed Beijing over the past week. The commentary is in Chinese, but you
don’t need to understand Chinese to understand what’s going on.
The first video shows several vehicle collisions caused by the near total
lack of visibility on the road.
In the second video, a couple of guys stop their cars on the road due to the
lack of visibility. They get out, walk a short distance and are then unable
to find their way back to the cars. The video is obviously staged, but it
does a good job of showing the absurdly-bad air quality.
How are China’s policy-makers going to deal with this without shutting down a
lot of power plants and refineries and without substantially curtailing the
use of cars, that is, without crashing the economy? I have no idea.
