    America's decades of exploitation are coming to an end. After this decade, We'll be the world's cesspit.

    China is investing the most money in renewable energy. All public transportation in major cities in china have gone electric. And yet I keep hearing western media keep demonizing china for pollution. I’m starting to get sick of the western media’s brainwashing.

    If you've ever been to any of these countries you might notice they aren't so great at managing their own trash.

    A shame they forgot to mention how much of that household trash is still being sent to South Asia and probably other places illegally

    The most serious problem is that the Chinese began to make a lot of garbage like the Americans, and the Chinese could not even handle the garbage they created. So China has to start implementing strict waste sorting. While forcing people to sort garbage, they will be killed if they receive unsorted garbage from foreign countries.
