A Monstrous Mess: toxic water pollution in China

A team from Greenpeace East Asia’s Detox campaign recently discovered an unsettling sight off the coast of South Eastern China. Next to the city of Shishi, a centre for children’s clothing production, they discovered a huge black plume of wastewater around the size of 50 Olympic swimming pools on the sea’s surface; a large dark scar on the water easily visible via satellite imagery.
