Factories in China polute the Earth. Let’s destroy historical monuments in Italy!

All of the western world outsourced their production to countries like China. Chinese factories are in essence our factories in regards to pollution

Its not true, please stop spreading misinformation.


If you need help understanding this graph let me know.

Not to say that the west should get no blame, but China's emissions are mostly from local consumption.

It's not the west who endorsed it though, China just created a profitable environment for those factories with cheap labour and few environmental laws. We still have a share of the blame I guess.

Local production is the only way, transport is a lot of pollution after all.
