China Green: Big Tree Country (Video)

China Green, a project of Asia Society, has produced another documentary about China’s environmental devastation:

Da Shu Xian, or Big Tree Country, in remote Province is the site of a large sulfur mine, which produces up to 12,000 tons of sulfur a month. In the 14 years since the mine became operational up until this film was produced in 1992, pollution from the sulfur mine wiped out the area’s trees that had given the county its name.

Fallout from the mine has affected the villagers’ health, their fields, homes, families, and the lives of their children.
