Water Contamination In China [Pictures]

August 12, 2016 in Global Issues

China is the second largest economy in terms of GDP. Over the past few years, the Chinese economy is rapidly growing but that rapid growth comes with a heavy cost i.e. pollution. In 2012 more than 50% of China’s reservoirs and lakes were contaminated which made them unsuitable for consumption.  China’s water is worse than it was ever before in the history.

Government has made pollution a criminal offence according to its new laws to curb pollution in the country. Factories, businesses and individuals found contributing to pollution are fined and could face jails. However the damage has already be done. These photos reveal the extent to which the water supplies of China are contaminated.
