“China's longest river is “cancerous” with pollution and rapidly dying, threatening drinking water supplies in 186 cities along its banks, state media said on Tuesday.”

If any American environmentalists are bored with going after our companies here, you should probably go to China and focus on their horrible industrial pollution. That's where the real environmental problems are.
