These Disturbing Photos Prove That Pollution Is Out Of Control In China

by Mike Cahill, Viral Nova:

Over the last 30 years, China's economy has been growing at a breakneck pace. While this rapid growth has benefited the population, the environmental impact of that growth is also unreal. China is currently the world's biggest polluter and largest producer of carbon emissions. It's a fact that can be seen, felt, and even tasted.

Garbage-clogged waterway

Millions of dead fish

I'm not sure that water is safe to drink

Dumping garbage straight into the river

Surrounded in pollution

Running through the garbage

Sitting among piles of industrial garbage

So sad

More dead fish

You can barely see the sun through the haze in this picture

I'm not sure I even want to know what happened here

How did it get this bad?

Straight from the factory to the oceans

Intense smog

Devastating the countryside

Not a pleasant sight to have outside your home

What are they doing here?

So tragic

More industrial waste dumping

Careful not to breathe the air

This looks like the apocalypse

That's no wildfire, it's just smog

This might be beautiful if it wasn't so toxic

I dread to think what these parts of China will look like in another 30 years if something isn't done to clean up this damage.
