36 Photos Showing How Disgustingly Polluted China Has Become

China is struggling with pollution big time. These images are a stark reminder of how screwed they really are.

China seems like a pretty crazy place, it’s a country where you can leave unwanted babies at “baby hatches” and where they bomb rivers from jet aircraft if they freeze over. Despite their quirks, everyone knows that China is well on its way to becoming the next super power.

China is a huge country with loads of natural resources and masses of people. It’s easy for us to sneer at the amount of pollution they’re creating, but it’s no different to the West’s dirty past, it’s just that we did it first and realised it was bad (eventually). Now it’s their turn to muck it up for a while.
