Does China or India have an EPA or any goverment agency that holds their companies accountable for the pollutants their factories emit? Do they have any enviromental laws? Any emmision standards that have to be followed by their car/truck manufacturers? We are talking two billion people. The main reason why I ask is because: In the last half of the 20th Century, most of these countries relied on the bicycle as their main mode of transprotation . . . that is A LOT of bicycles. Now that their economies are thriving, more of their populations are generating more income. Even the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) is spreading the wealth by throwing a few bones out here and there to their comrades. This would translate to hundreds of thousands of new vehicles being put on the road in the last five years. I'm sure some of you have seen/heard about the traffic congestion at a few of their highways that have stretched for miles and lasted for DAYS. Point: Earth day, "Going Green", recycling, etc.. until we know that the PRC and India is actually taking preventative measures to control emmisions . . . what is the point?
