Smoke pollution
I went back to my hometown to spend my Spring Festival with my family on Feb 1st. Of course, it is a good season to celebrate the Chinese New Year. But when I stepped on the land of my hometown, I saw several smoke dragons flying in sky, which destroyed my good mood. It has been manydecades since the sugar manufactory was built. People around suffer its pollution. The manufactory is one kilometer away from themain town of the county with a population of 150,000 and it is only severa ...

We are living in an environment with much noise, especially in towns. Every one of us suffers it when we live in a town with large population. My office is in a building nearby an avenue with cars passing every second in the day time, even till late at night. I can’t stand the noise any more. How can people bear it when they are living along the streets with so much noise. Actually, it is man-made noise. As the town is growing up, more and more people have cars. So the current co ...

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
