    Why China's Air Has Been Cleaner During The Coronavirus Outbreak

    "As China seeks to control the spread of COVID-19, fewer cars are driving, fewer factories are running and in some places skies are clearer. Air pollution levels have dropped by roughly a quarter over the last month as coal-fired power plants and industrial facilities have ramped down so employees in high-risk areas can stay home. Levels of nitrogen dioxide, a pollutant primarily from burning fossil fuels, were down as much as 30%, according to NASA. "It is an unprecedentedly dramatic drop in emissions," says Lauri Myllyvirta, lead analyst at the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air, who tallied the reductions. "I've definitely spoken to people in Shanghai who said that it's been some of the most pristine blue skies that they remember over the winter." .......https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsan...virus-outbreak ......and that's just in China . Similar reductions in pollution , and improved air and water quality are happening all over the world . Large fish stocks have returned to the canals of Venice , which hasn't been seen for over half a lifetime. By the time this virus is overcome , a clear picture will appear regarding mankind's real and factual influence on the health of planet Earth.

    The world needs to punish china and pull manufacturing out of that country. We cannot allow them to control the manufacturer of necesssary commodities. They have proven how they will screw everyone with pharmaceuticals and medical supplies.

    If necessary we need to make it economically unbearable and not profitable to manufacture there
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    I would caution against following idiot pied pipers.
    People who enter the US without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally
