I lived in China for about six months.  In Shanghai, in the French concession.  I was working for a company in the Jing'an district.  This gave me the opportunity to experience first hand what it is like to live in a country with little to no environmental regulations.  It has been awhile since I have been there so things may have changed a bit since but I have my doubts.

  • I went out to the bars on Bund one night and came home piss drunk.  Hopped in the shower and was thirsty and drunk so took a big mouthful of water.  I nearly vomited and was instantly sober.  Shanghai tap water is disgusting - no one drinks it except the very poor.  It tastes like liquid metal with god knows what mixed in
  • I was driving home in a taxi one winter evening and looked out the window at the beautiful snow fall.  Then I realised it was still well above freezing.  The falling "snow" was just fly ash from the local coal fired power station
  • A friend of mine landed at the airport.  I went to collect her.  On the taxi ride into the city she commented on the moon which was high in the sky.  I told her 'no' that's the sun and its just smog that make it look dim.  We then had an argument about whether it was the sun or the moon.  I was right and she was wrong.

Here is a picture of what Shanghai looks like on a typical day



Here is a photo of Beijing, which tends to be worse than Shanghai



A pic from Shijiazhuang which is further inland





You guys might think that environmental regulations are killing the USA and UK, but I suggest the opposite.  A lack of environmental regulations are killing China and places in Asia.  All the rich Chinese establish anchor homes in the West, in part just so they can get away from the pollution.  

Think twice before you advocate for getting rid of environmental protections.  You might think that the EPA is communist, but it is truly awful living somewhere without proper environmental controls.  I was offered a pay rise if I would stay for another six months after my contract was up, but I got the fuck out of China and have never been back.  Once I got off the plane in the West and walked into the airport parking lot, all I could smell was this wall of fresh air and flowers.  That memory is absolutely seared into my brain after six months of living in smog.  




Some more information just so you don't think I am making it up:

Quote
Can I drink the tap water in China?

No, the tap water in China is not safe to drink. Unlike most western countries where there is easy access to safe tap water, in most places in China the tap water, although it looks clear, is not safe for drinking unless it has been boiled. Even in big cities like Beijing and Shanghai, water from the tap is not well filtered, sterilized, or purified, and may carry hazardous contaminants like sediments, rusts, bacteria, virus, chlorines, or other heavy metals. Sicknesses like diarrhea caused by drinking unclean water may spoil your trip.

China's air pollution crisis shows no sign of ending as nation fails to lower coal use  10 January 2017

For the last month, severe air pollution has choked Beijing and coal is estimated to cause about 40 per cent of the smog in the nation's capital. Other cities in the north, such as Shijiazhuang, have recorded air quality of 1000 PM2.5. PM2.5 are fine particles less than 2.5 micrometres in diameter that can lodge in the lungs and get into the bloodstream. The World Health Organisation says anything over 25 PM2.5 as a health hazard

Look at you, using all facts and shit, lets not have that crap get in the way of a good party line.

Yes, but it is also a fact that they work very hards to reduce harmful emissions, and with good effect, and some side effects.
"China's official action plan to address its pollution problems was launched in 2013, and since then, the nation's drastic air pollution controls have had a correspondingly drastic effect, slashing concentrations of harmful PM 2.5 particle matter in eastern China by almost 40 percent."

Hello frenz.

Our baby bull market is 61 days old. For those of you who doubt this, we have a new bottom indicator.

https://twitter.com/JoseCanseco/status/1095422953687154688

"Stay away from Bitcoin it has the same structure as any pyramid scheme but controlled by one individual"

Jose Canseco has sold all of his coins and moved on to hunting bigfoot and time traveling with aliens he claims.

https://www.sfgate.com/sports/article/Hunt-bigfoot-and-aliens-with-Jose-Canseco-for-13615160.php

"you can travel with Canseco for a mere $5,000 in cash. Canseco tweeted the offer Tuesday: “Go on a Bigfoot and alien Excursion with Jose Canseco contact Morgan Management.” ..... “Only 5 lucky individuals will get a golden ticket. Oompa loompas ain’t got nothing on Bigfoot. Travel in his custom RV ... You never know what’s gonna happen with Mr. Canseco.” ..... Last month, Canseco tweeted that aliens had given him the secret to time travel."

Jose was kind enough to fomo in right around the Bitcoin top in late 2017.

https://twitter.com/JoseCanseco/status/933131368371859456

"In 2020 countries with digital based financial systems shall form the DEU - Digital Economic Union and Satoshi Nakamoto shall emerge as world leader"

4:33 PM - 21 Nov 2017
@JoseCanseco

"So don't be late to the party. Soon this opportunity will cease to be one."


Now Jose has sodled the bottom and joined the delusional bear team.




3800 next week. The hopium is spreading. Cheesy

I see we disagree heavily,  my main goal is to give people a baseline like an UBI.  We are missing out on a lot of potential by people stuck in poverty that go through extreme stress and are never able to achieve anything great.  I believe everyone should at least have their basics met: education, healthcare, housing, food.

You are rich right? Go do that with your money and shut the fuck up about how the rest of us use ours.

There is only so much one person can do.  Don't you realize crime and violence happens mostly because of poverty.  I'm a bad person for wanting to make the world a better place?

Nope, crime and violence happens mostly because of genetics, with a little nurture on top.
Also environment. High levels of inequality with no way to personally advance also contributes. Quite a lot.

Do you really think Trump is going to get on TV and say, "Hey guys, the banking system just imploded and instead of reverting back to gold and silver as normal, I think we'll just go with this fly by night scam called bitcoin instead".  Do you really think that's going to happen? 

Do you really think that bitcoin, or even I when it comes to me thoughts about bitcoin, give(s) a ratt's ass about Trump? and what he says or does not say?



Aha finally a chance to respond without violating Roaches law.

This. Hang onto your worthless dollar bills if you want. Bitcoin wont care.

That would be the nurture on top.

No, that's environment. It's different. Words mean things and it is a different word. It's right there, see how that works?
