China is mad at our embassy for reporting how bad their air quality is.
The government demanded that foreign governments stop releasing data on China’s air quality, as is regularly done by a sensor at the American Embassy in Beijing.
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Huge problem for China, going to be extremely costly when if they choose to clean their air up and mandate pollution prevention, not to mention the health effects that will come from it.
He complained that data from just a few locations were unrepresentative of broader air quality in China.
Except that those few locations are the one's where the majority of people live.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Am I the only person that thinks we shouldn't be pissing China off right now seeing as though they hold most of our debt?
They don't hold most of our debt. It's less than 15%, actually think it's closer to 12%. They need us, much more than we need them.

Yeah they would collapse if we stopped buying their stuff
ain't communism fun?!
Well I've never said that I was a political giant. Can't remember where I heard that. Maybe they just meant they hold more of our debt than any other country out there.
I honestly have no fvcking clue.
Yea, they own the largest portion of US debt compared to any other country, but it's still a small percentage. The media, for whatever reason, wants people to believe our economy would crumble without China, and it couldn't be further from the truth. China needs us, and they know it.
They're not exactly communists; more like socialists with a state-run economy.
I think a quote from them was that whether they practice capitalism, state-ism, or communism, they are going to do what they think works best and call it socialism.
