Marketplace had a report today akin today to "Dog Bites Man" entitled "China Exports Pollution, Too". Really? Wow! (link here) Who would have known that? (except that I've been beating that drum for years, here, and here). It IS Nice though, that mainstream media is reporting what I've already been saying, proving I am not just a negative curmudgeon or a China basher. I remember years and years of not being able to see even a 1/2 mile in China, no sun, no birds, no clouds, just a pall of snog over everything.. and that was 200 million fewer people, a trillion less in debt, and 10 years ago. 3 years of nasty pollution from '99 to 2002... but that was only 6 months of my life (intermittently) and 13 different airports all around the country. Yeah, it was an anomaly.
Create your own visitor map! Gray Background tones, because despite many peoples' view that Everything in the world is simply Black or White, (all fundamentalists, many engineers, few scientists, lots of confused persons, many digital thinkers) there's all sorts of shades of gray, everywhere you look. Good wine doesn't have to be expensive. Conservatives do not have to be selfish and insane wing-nuts. Liberals do not have to have socialist-abortion-producing-crystal-worshiping-gay-marriages. Racists, xenophobes, fundamentalists, and willful ignorance suck. The Earth is Much Older than 6000 years. Don't be afraid of Science, embrace it. The web's a great tool. ..in the humble perspective of this INTJ alpha male.
