The Color of Pollution
I was warned, "Roll up the windows! Don't get out of the car." We are driving through an enormous
asbestos mining facility. The sun is hidden behind a sea of grey debris.
Asbestos is used in thousands of products in China - to fireproof ceilings, tiles and beams as well as to insulate pipes,
broilers and walls. The rest is exported for international use.
I had never seen anything like this mine before. The environment and every living thing in it were completely annihilated.
