Afternoon TEA: It’s time to call China out
Did you know?
China continues to build its track record as a leading global polluter.
Using air-monitoring equipment in Japan and Korea, scientists detected steady emissions of chlorofluorocarbon from mainland China.
Chlorofluorocarbon is an ozone-damaging chemical and was globally banned beginning in 2010 when China and the world agreed to phase out its use. Emissions of the banned substance, which is often associated with the use of home insulation, have continued to increase each year in China.
China should be called out for its environmental violations and be required to comply with the same environmental standards that are being upheld by the United States and other nations.
