How can people stand living in China with all that pollution? Haven't they heard of car-pooling?

I read an article not to long ago about China's pollution. Basically a lot of recycling businesses for electronics go there because of cheap labor. But a lot of the electronics has mercury and all kinds of toxins unfortunately they don't have any safety procedures so not only do the workers get exposed, the environment gets polluted with all the left overs.

Holy crap. That is disgusting. They wonder why we are having a global warming problem. They need to fix that problem.

Could you imagine our worst day of winter with no air movement is better than what these people have year around. The beginning of the video mentioned they have hardly any wind. I am thankful to be living here in America. And, I will remember to be thankful next winter when it is gray and icky outside because at least the air is breathable in compression.
