China’s Mines: ‘You Could Feel The Air Burning As It Went Down’

One of the biggest problems facing China today is its air pollution. China’s largest cities are covered in thick smog clouds, and children are forced to breathe in toxins daily.

The Chinese government is trying to (look like it’s trying to) stop continued pollution with comical ideas like outdoor grilling.  Which seems odd when you watch this video, which helps to explain the ridiculous level that coal mines are playing in polluting China’s air.

People in these areas know full well their health is being hurt by these coal mines, but they have no power to change it.

In the United States laws are passed to prohibit companies from polluting the air and harming citizens. China needs to care more about their land and their people and stop this business first, health and environment last approach to government. Readers, what would you do to help combat this problem?
