Teacher’s Talk: Chinese (Day 6)


Both the Chinese and Sustainability classes listened to Aloma Dew, a member of the Sierra Club, speak about environmental issues in both China and the US. The classes learned a lot of new information. For instance, the classes learned that Shanghai once had 16,000 dead hogs contaminating their rivers.

Yum Brands, such as KFC and Pizza Hut, has created a desire for more meat in China, and has resulted in more confined animal feeding operations!

China and the USA are interdependent more than we think! China is going through their industrial revolution like what we had. Our coal in Kentucky has been exported to China. We are all connected.
