750,000 a year killed by Chinese pollution

Some excerpts from the above article, with the accepted wisdom of the Church of Global Warming in brackets: Sixteen of the world’s 20 most polluted cities are in China. [And I still have to be preached to by the Goreacle to put florescent light bulbs in my house.]

750,000 people die prematurely in China each year, mainly from air pollution in large cities. [But it's our SUVs that are destroying the planet.]

High air-pollution levels in Chinese cities is leading to the premature deaths of 350,000-400,000 people each year. A further 300,000 people die prematurely each year from exposure to poor air indoors. Another 60,000 premature deaths were attributable to poor-quality water. [But Americans are the really evil ones.]

China had the death estimates removed from a World Bank study because the "methodology is unreliable". [But only Republicans lie about the environment.]
