外文标题：China puts up ads showing environmental problems in India
BEIJING: China, the world’s largest carbon emitter, has put up advertisements at public places depicting the environmental issues in Indian cities like Mumbai to warn its people about the impact of climate change and encourage them to plan future around low carbon development.
Advertisements depicting pictures of Mumbai and Allahabad among others have been put up along the streets and places such as Wangfujing city center area in downtown prominently to draw people’s attention towards consequences of pollution.
China, which pledges to cut carbon emissions and plan to minimise the adverse impact on its economy, highlighted issues of plastic garbage, sandstorms in Indian cities in its ads and also suggested ways to address the environmental challenges.
One of the ads says the grim situation teenagers faced in Mumbai on not finding appropriate place to play is due to heap of plastic garbage.
“The beaches in Mumbai were covered in plastic garbage, teenagers, eager to release energy of youth, had no choice but to play cricket in the garbage heap,” said one of the ads, which prominently highlights a picture showing a boy playing cricket on heap of garbage at a beach.
Another advertisement speaks about Allahabad.
“On July 12, 2015, the city of Allahabad in India was hit by sandstorms, the resulting low visibility made it impossible for pedestrian to see each others in the sand,” describes the billboard under the concept of low carbon development.

The truth can’t be denied. Even as the world’s factory, China’s cities are still less polluted and much cleaner and well maintained than ours.

A well considered and cheap China tactic. To discourage foreign tourists to India. The biggest environment spoiler is blaming other country. Both China and his “paltu” country Pakistan shall not leave any opportunity to defame India. India should rise higher with greater dedication to devote all their energy to solve their environment concerns.

both are developing coal and thermal based economies… so pollution is unavoidable.. what makes it hilarious is that china is preaching about indian pollution.. china well know for its smog..! second major reason for their pollution is the carbon dioxide released by their constant eating of pork and all kinds of lizards and other animals..!!!!
Chinese are ruthless. They will destroy this world unless rest of the world stops depending on them for their cheap products.

Mumbai air is far better than Chinese pollution. Chinese tourist visiting Mumbai are enjoying and feeling fresh. To escape pollution chinese people are building fake islands, far away from mainland.
