A twisted view of the real world.
Have you been to China?
I worked 2 years and half there.
I also speaks resonalbly well chinese. For reading this is another matter
There are cites so nasty with pollution it rains every day from the fallout. Nothing even close to that nasty anywhere in the US.
I do not know who is nasty.
But for sure, China has not yet reach the US in term of Big trucks and other stupid SUV.
Actually biclycle is still used in lot in China. I know this for sure because I used to go to work with my roller blades and I was sharing the biclycle lanes/roads.
But China is for sure on a good path to follow america in term of car usage.
I'm talking about cities with populations in the millions and no traffic lights.
Not the famous cities the media likes to talk about.
Can you please give me the names of those famous places because I have been traveling a lot in China and I can not remember seeing "cities with with populations in the millions and no traffic lights"
I am looking forward to visit them.
I know only one country with only one traffic light (well actually it was 5 years ago): it was libanon.
Nowhere can you drink the water. Everything is dumped in the rivers.
For this at least I agreee with you. I personnaly say 15 km from Shanghai a pipe directely going through the sea with a liquide with two colors: bright yellow and dark black and smelling sulfur.
But beleive me, China is not the only country where you can not dring the tap water. Actually every where in Asia (except Japan and Singapour) if you drink the tap water to go directly to the toilet for several hours.
By the way, why american always order "mineral water" instead of "tap water" when they go to a restaurant in the US ?
The US is not the evil toilet of the world.
Per head, US is getting close to actually.
