    “In America, 100 years is a long time. In England, 100 miles is a long distance.


    Now imagine a country as big as the US, but where 100 miles means as much as (or more than) it does in England.


    I know some rich Chinese who got US passports and retired to the US, because the pollution where they lived was killing off all the old people.


    I know a Chinese from a different city where they banned all pollution and the air, once black, is now perfectly clean.


    Not clear which municipal model will eventually became national policy. Maybe there WON’T EVER be a national policy about air quality in China.

    Why would anyone want business-strangling laws and regulations, just to make the air cleaner and the citizenry healthier?

    They should be giving tax cuts to the “Job Creators” and the pollution will all go away.

    Yes, cleaning up pollution does take funds. So which would you rather have. Higher costs and taxation, along with air that can be breathed. Or lower costs and taxation along with an air that can’t be breathed. Of course, in the second case you eventually have no costs or taxation, as everybody is dead!!

    It’s good to see Thurber is still remembered. Here’s another quotation of his:
    .
    “Man is flying too fast in a world that is round. Soon he will catch up with himself in a great rear end collision.”
    .
    Eventually each person realizes, often too late, if you don’t have decent health you really have nothing.

    ‘So you agree that sending Obama to China to impose excessive taxation on Chinese people will solve all their problems. You aren’t so braindead after all.’
    -
    Excessive taxation? For Republicans/Fox “news” viewers, that means ANY tax on income, right? Any regressive taxes, like payroll and especially sales taxes are jes’ fine, right?

    This is the future the GOP wants for the US.

    My 2011 semi diesel truck runs so clean it cleans the air. It has a DPF (diesel particulate filter) which is a soot scrubber just like the coal plants use and a DEF which puts Urea into the hot exhaust. If China used these trucks, they could clean the air as they drive.
