John Upton at Grist.org reports… (as do Reuters, and Bloomberg) that the Chinese have recently  addressed their severe environmental air pollution issues, investing $277 Billion in an initial 25% clean up plan.  The Chinese government has issued strict new rules with heavy punishments that can be imposed, including execution of serious continuing offenders.

Watch for more on this news, as our politicians so often ask why we should be concerned about the environment when ‘China doesn’t pay any attention to their environment’…well that argument just got flushed.  We need to recognize that all countries, states, and corporations and persons need to start paying attention to our environment …while we still have one that includes enough Oxygen to breathe.
