"China Builds 51 Dams to Slow Toxic Spill

Published:

Where are the "greens" when the world needs them??????????? 

There was some sort of chemical spill in a major river back in the winter which bubbled up past their news blackout, plus coal mine explosions. 

Hmmm, perhaps they need some of our greenie environmental regulations to bring their economy to a grinding hault.

Also bet our drive by media doesn't mention this because anything a Marxist government does is perfect in their eyes.

Chinese authorities tried to slow the spread of a toxic spill by building 51 makeshift dams along the tainted river and using fire trucks to pump out polluted water before it reaches a reservoir serving a city of 10 million people, state media said Friday.

The spill of 60 tons of coal tar into the Dasha river in north China's Shanxi province was the latest in a series of mishaps fouling the country's already polluted waterways. Officials said there have been at least 76 water pollution accidents in the last six months.

A villager who lives along the river described seeing dozens of dead fish floating in the water.

In a separate incident Thursday, a series of explosions rocked the Longxin Chemical Plant in the city of Longquan, Zhejiang province, destroying two factories and threatening to contaminate the Oujiang river, which empties into the East China Sea, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.
