Good. China is a garbage country anyway. Australia should also send all nuclear fuel wastes and bury it under the CCP-Politburo buildings in Beijing.

He is not a swede, but a filipino, malay or indonesian immigrant living in sweden.

These are the groups who bad mouth China the most.

Without rectifying the shitload of problems in their own homelands first.

By recycling waste paper, China spares the forests.

Except they aren't trying to be environmentally friendly or save any forests. They're trying to make money out of the fact that we care far more about the planet than they do.

They also take almost all the used tyres in Europe and 'recycle' them by burning them to fuel their power stations. These are literally the dirtiest and most poisoning industrial facilities on the planet.

Sadly the owners care far more about making a few quid than they do about poisoning their own people.
