Like it or not, the Far East, imported many of the more pollution producing industries from the Western world.
Thank you! Finally someone touched a critical point! A important fact.
You all like to live the wonderful lifestyle of western world, will all you commodities, gadgets and plastic crap, and then play the cynical game of being shocked with all the pollution you demand to support your lifestyle.
Asia in general, specially China, are world factories. No matter where you live in the world you have a heavy footprint in china. And, unlike most of so called leading and developed nations, china is truly making an effort to cut it down.
There are pro and cons, is up to each individual and make the math. Not to mention, life is variable. What you want today, may not be what you want tomorrow.

Please, don't be cynical about the pollution you all hate to breath but love to produce...

Keep your plastic crap. It’s not making anyone’s lives better anyways. As for pollution, the leading reducer of CO2 by far is the USA, not China. Ironically, this has most to do with switching electricity generation to natural gas, not “renewables”. China is disgusting because it produces most of its electricity with coal and has 1.5 billion people crammed into the eastern third of the country. Don’t blame everyone else for China’s problems. Nobody is forcing them to produce all that plastic crap.
