China cracks down on environmental protection, arrests thousands suspected of environmental crimes

Climate-Cops-ReducedBy Becca Stanek

China is getting serious about protecting the environment and expects its citizens to follow suit — or pay the price. China’s Environment Minister Chen Jining told parliament on Monday that Chinese police arrested thousands of people suspected of committing environmental crimes in the last year. Jining reported that, in total, 2,080 criminal cases were handed over to the police by environmental protection departments in 2014. Moreover, an estimated 3,400 companies and 3,700 construction sites were found to have violated environmental laws last year, and more than 3,100 workshops had to be shut down because of violations.

    Don’t you wish it was a scam. Willfully ignorance on this is becoming immoral, cowardly, and antisocial. Get an education.

      If you can see it, it’s not CO2.

      It’s not honest to mix pollution and CO2, or it reveals low level of knowledge.

    but why does the picture show an american cop arresting someone (possibly staged) with the words climate cops on his shirt, and a clearly photoshopped police badge – all in english by the way – for a Chinese police force? Wouldn’t Chinese officials be labeled in Mandarin?

    And by the way I do live in Hong Kong so I do know what a Chinese official looks like. Nor have I ever heard of climate cops. Albeit east asian governments are beginning to focus more on waste management. I recommend if you wish to use a more belivable story go for South Korea or Japan

      The picture is a spoof showing the hypocrisy of the Chinese government arresting a few thousand people.
