When can we see rainbow again?

People in Beijing were very happy and excited when seeing the rainbow hanging in the air days ago. It has been long since it appeared last time. It becomes a luxurious and rare enjoying for the local people in their life since Beijing has been covered by polluted air such as sandstorm, haze and so on many times.

       With the rapid development of urbanization in China, many cities are facing the same problem of pollution. More population will move to towns and cities. The more population it increases in city, the more polluted air and water we have. One day in the future we will ask ourselves the reason why we move to a place in which we always suffer from traffic jams, polluted air and water.

       I had an experience of living in the countryside before. I still remember the clear water coming from the spring, beautiful cloud hanging in the air, clear air and green hills. Now I miss those beautiful things.

When can people in Beijing see rainbow again? It is hard to say. When can I enjoy clear water and air again here in Shenzhen? The answer is never. Shall I withdraw?

Do you have any ideas about it?

  • 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.
