HOW TO COMBAT
Stop the “Greedy Few”
Hong Kong authorities set to ramp up fight against air pollution from ships by flying drones to monitor emissions
Public awareness of the issue has led to some changes in government policy in China, but there is a lot more that needs to be done.
The problem is not getting better. China's coal consumption is now growing at its fastest rate since 2011.Chinese coal consumption has risen in 2018, and the overall number of sources releasing pollutants into the environment has almost doubled since 2010. In the first five months of 2018, more than 870 million metric tons of thermal coal were consumed nationwide - a huge 12 per cent increase from 2017 levels.
That is why we have launched this website - as a place for anyone concerned about the destruction of our environment caused by unrestrained Chinese pollution, to come together, to share ideas and research and to raise awareness of one of the biggest threats facing people around the world.
