Skip to comments.China Demands Reparations for Global Pollution [semi-satire]
Posted on 12/01/2019 2:20:56 PM PST by John Semmens
Zhao Yingmin, Chinas Vice-Minister of Ecology and Environment, demanded that developed countries pay poor countries the $100 billion in reparations promised by the Paris Accord for the damages done by global pollution. The roster of proposed recipients of this $100 billion includes China. Ironically, China is currently spewing out more pollution than any other country.
The chance for Chinas demands being met seem slim since the Trump Administration has withdrawn US participation in the Paris Accord. Nevertheless, Zhao denounced this unilateral rejection of an agreement made by his predecessor, labeled Trumps action a crime against humanity, and called efforts to get his country to reduce its pollution an infringement on our sovereignty.
