China's growing recycling industry

With a population of more than one billion people, China creates massive volumes of waste. But its recycling industry is also growing fast, one that utilises not only its own rubbish but that of other countries as well.   It is the world's biggest importer of waste, taking in plastics from the US, for example, before transforming them into new products to be shipped back to Western countries. Melissa Chan reports from Beijing as part of Al Jazeera's Wasteful World series. (July 27, 2010)

Two Child Policy - China

Under the strain of a rapidly-ageing population, China has eased its one-child policy. Yet a two-class system endures for the migrant workers whose children are not welcome in the city of Shanghai.

China's 'cancer villages' reveal dark side of economic boom

Polluting factories in rural communities are forming a deadly toxic cocktail for villagers, leading to surging rates of cancer. Zheng Gumei thought she was down with a cold until the doctor told her to wait outside the room so he could talk to her son alone. "I knew then that I must have a serious illness," the 47-year-old farmer recalled, wiping away the tears and then staring into the distance. "I'm having treatment now. See, my hair has fallen out," she said, taking off her hat to show the side-effects of chemotherapy. Like many other residents of Xinglong, a small rural community next to an industrial park in China's Yunnan province, she had little doubt about the source of her cancer. "The pollution in this village is bad, people get sick." Such stories have become much more common in China in recent years as breakneck economic growth increasingly takes its toll on the nation's health.

It's dark behind 'the great firewall' of China

In China's first official response to Google's threat to leave the country, the government on Thursday said foreign internet companies are welcome but must obey the law and gave no hint of a possible compromise over web censorship. Foreign ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu, without mentioning Google by name, said Beijing prohibits e-mail hacking. Google have said it would stop censoring search results in China and might shut down its China-based site, citing hacking attacks against its e-mail service. "I want to stress that China's internet is open. Chinese government promotes the development of internet. We promote an environment adequate for a healthy development of the internet. China's law prohibits any sort of hacker attacks. China, like many other nations, manages the internet according to the law. Our measures to manage the internet are in accordance with international practices. I also want to stress that China welcomes international internet enterprises to conduct business in China according to the law." Web users visited Google's Beijing offices for a second day to leave flowers and notes expressing support for the company. Some visitors poured small glasses of liquor, gestures normally associated with Chinese funerals. Others left a copy of the People's Daily, which they said represented the tightly controlled state media that China's public would be left with if Google pulls out and censorship continues.

A New China

One Tenth of Cooking Oil in China Comes from Waste

Every year, people in China consume between two to three million tons of recycled oil, also known as drainage oil, according to a Chinese food science expert. In a country where 22.5 million tones of oil is consumed each year, thats one tenth of their entire consumption. The substandard cooking oil is refined from discarded kitchen and restaurant waste. Some of it is scooped out from underground waste drainages. Professor He Dongping from Wuhan Polytechnic University has been studying the use of drainage oil for seven years. He recently told state-run China Youth Daily that recycling oil has become a lucrative business in China. Waste oil is cheap to refine, and is half the price of normal cooking oil. A study by Professor Hes students found the oil recycler can make about $1,500 U.S. dollars a month—as much as a well-paid white collar worker. Drainage oil is bought by street vendors and local restaurants that are cutting down on costs. Drainage oil is cheap, but it can be costly to consumers health. One of the main chemicals found in recycled oil is aflatoxin. Its a cancer causing agent, and 100 times more toxic than arsenic. Chinese food safety authorities issued a stern warning to food service providers last week. If they are found using drainage oil or buying oil from an unclear source, their business will be halted. But Professor He says the real problem is the lack of regulation on how to handle and dispose of restaurant waste. Also, the difficulties in testing for recycled oil means this food safety scandal may not go away anytime soon.

Totalitarian China, UN model-state for the world

When we delve into the historical record, we find that one of the first globalist technocrats to write about the 'necessity' of turning China into a socialist totalitarian system was Bertrand Russell, in his 1920s book, "The Problem of China". He advocated that China, given its massive manpower, would be useful for labor and for promoting world totalitarian command & control socialism; and so, should be completely standardized by means of a communist revolution. Later, it would be propped up via trade agreements that would transfer production (factories, basically) from the West into Chinese territory. Therefore, China would become the manufacturing center for the world, and would, during the 21st century, assume a main role in world governance.

That is all in that 1920s book. Later, Mao's revolution was indeed supported by globalist financial and military interests, in detriment of Chiang Kai-shek's nationalist movement. During the 1970s, the international banking oligarchy offered its full support to Red China, and praised the outcomes of its revolution -- were they thinking of those 60 million dead Chinese human beings? So, we find that it is also during this decade that the UN and their consulting body, the Club of Rome, start promoting China to assume the role of manufacturing center for the world; and the technology and wealth transfer to there from the West begins en masse, via trade agreements like GATT.
All the while, China was being turned into the nightmare scenario the establishment is implementing worldwide, on a step-by-step basis.

Communist China is the CLOSEST thing there is, of the so-called new world order: a totalitarian two-class system, communistic-at-the-bottom, and oligarchic-at-the-top. The living standards for the average person are miserable, strained by impoverishment, disease, and eugenics policies. The economy is collectivized under an all-mighty oligarchic state, under the pretexts of 'environmental sustainability' and 'keeping the common good'. 'Social cohesion' is kept under a brutal police state where dissenters are sent to forced labor/death camps, and everyone in society can be an informant for the government. The people are trained to think collectively, following the government/media paradigms; an individual is not supposed to have original ideas. Society is supposed to be a beehive of very hard-working, politically correct, communal slaves.

THIS IS THE NEW WORLD ORDER, as has constantly been described throughout the decades by major players, such as Bertrand Russell, HG Wells, Jacques Attali, Zbigniew Brzezinski. The scientifically controlled and run socialist society. And this model is now being fully implemented in a country near you; under the pretexts of 'national security' and 'ecological sustainability'.

More Melamine-Tainted Food Emerges in China

In China, the melamine tainted milk scandal was exposed in 2008. Six babies died and more than 300,000 fell ill from the poisoned milk, according to Chinese officials figures. ow the toxic chemical has again found its way back into food products sold on supermarket shelves in China. According a report in the state-run Peoples Daily, some companies have been using recalled melamine-tainted milk powder to make products.  And the incidents have not been isolated. The tainted products have been produced by companies across China, including Shanghai and Liaoning Provinces in the northeast. The latest contaminated products were found in Chinas southwestern province of Guizhou. Adding melamine to dairy products, makes the protein content appear higher. The toxic chemical is a byproduct of plastic and when consumed by humans, it can cause serious kidney and other health problems.

China Peaks, World Freaks

World media are a bunch of party poopers, criticizing China as it celebrates the 60th anniversary of Communist rule. Fox News' response was predictable, but South African broadcasting seemed to have it in for China as well. China's former "big brother to the North," as Russia Today phrased it, was one of the few willing to join the celebration.

Politiestaat China

Ten years after the Tiananmen Square massacre,10,000 Falun gong practitioners gathered outside China's central leadership compound in Beijing. They had come to appeal at China's central appeals office -- to appeal for practitioners who had been abused in the city of Tianjin, for thei books, which ahd been banned, and for practitioners all over the country who were being harassed and investigated by the police. They were met by the Chinese premier, and the arrested practitioners were released. It seemed like the appeal had been successful. But in reality, time was running out, and the brutal crackdown was getting closer and closer.


Papantonio on The Dangers of Chinese Drywall

Over the last few years, we've seen a string of defective products being shipped into the US from China. Items ranging from pet food to children's toys have been brought into our country, only to harm US consumers because they weren't properly screened. And now there's even more. Thanks to a shortage of drywall products after hurricane Katrina, US manufacturers were forced to import tons of this material from China to keep up with demand. Now we're beginning to see reports of this drywall actually corroding pipes and wiring in the walls of homes, and emitting a foul-smelling odor that could be potentially hazardous to residents. Mike Papantonio talks about this issue with attorney and consumer advocate Ben Gordon.

Uighur Dilemma - China

Ever since the violence between Muslim Uighurs and Han Chinese, a fear of fanaticism has taken hold. Is the government's decision to demolish the Uighur area Kashgar really due to an earthquake threat? Kashgar is a cultural icon. Parts of the city have stood for 2000 years and within its labyrinth, Uighur traditions are unchanged. 'We live as we did in the old times' says Tursun, a 6 generation pot thrower. But times are changing. Beijing's deputy mayor has announced that destruction of the old town is the only way to prepare for an earthquake threat. 'I spent my whole childhood in this place. If they destroy it, we can't continue our business' cries one of Kashgar's many blacksmiths. Many Uighur's are convinced that the authorities 'never tell the truth'. Yet some are happy to be rehoused in government buildings, admitting that their homes are dangerous. Kashgar is of great strategic value for China - if small separatist groups here link with Taliban insurgents across the border, there could be a full-scale armed conflict in Western China. 'If a handful of religious extremists, or international terrorists appear, we will crack down on them immediately' says Beijing's deputy mayor. His plan could rebuild a sour relationship. Or give the Uighurs a new reason to throw off Chinese occupation of their homeland.


Dark Clouds - The hidden side of China's miracle economy

Dark Clouds - The hidden side of China's miracle economy from panos pictures on Vimeo.

China's economy is exploding and behind the scenes of this economic miracle is the industrial revolution powered by the cheap labour that is helping to build and sustain the economy. Coal for power, coal for steel, coal for cement. Coal and labour are the raw materials, the flip side and the dark side of this economic juggernaut that is China. But it comes at a heavy price for the country's environment and its people's health. And now that is has overtaken the US as the biggest producer of carbon dioxide, China's emission levels will increase anxiety about its role in driving man-made global warming and will add to pressure on the world's politicians to reach an agreement on climate change that includes the Chinese economy.
