China destroying the ozone
Surprisingly from CNBC....


There has been a rise in the emission of an illegal greenhouse gas that destroys the earth’s ozone layer — and China is responsible for “a substantial fraction” of that increase, according to a new study.

The research published on Wednesday found that China accounted for 40% to 60% of the global increase in trichlorofluoromethane, or CFC-11, emissions between 2014 and 2017. Emissions of the gas came primarily from the Chinese northeastern provinces of Shandong and Hebei, according to the study.

Not only are they destroying the ozone, these gases are far more intense in pollution than regular CO2.

So much for the darling of the Paris Accord....but dont worry, we can trust them on trade...

At least there is solid chemistry here as opposed to the CO2 farce.

Isn’t the northwest of China where a lot of batteries for electric vehicles and components for wind mills and solar panels made?

It appears so
