“During the visit, Barbados Environment Minister Dr. Denis Lowe said he was aware of China’s commitment to good environmental governance and its concerns about climate change and other issues which occupied the consciousness of global planners.”
… from a Barbados Government press release (reprinted at the bottom of this post)
“China warns foreigners to stop monitoring its pollution. The Chinese government claims it’s making serious efforts to clean up pollution. But as this horrifying report shows, much of their ‘success’ has involved simply moving their toxic industries out of sight…
Untreated industrial waste is pumped directly into rivers… the water is used to irrigate crops.”

What exactly does Barbados hope to learn from China about managing the environment?
If you’re going to speak, at least speak the truth – better to just keep silent than to perpetuate a lie. At least that’s what I was always taught.
In recent years China has seen mass riots and violent government responses when the citizen-slaves stand up to stop the ongoing slaughter of humanity caused by their government’s callous and long term disregard for people and the environment.
All those low priced Chinese goods you purchase are low priced for a number of reasons: government & private slave labour camps, sweatshops, rampant pollution and the communist disdain for individual human rights and human life.
“I often wonder about folks 200 years ago who purchased cotton and sugar…
Did they care that slaves suffered to provide the products at a certain price?
Every Barbadian should ask their own heart…
“Should we be taking gifts and buying products from a Chinese Communist government that relies upon slavery as a vital part of the economy?”
To the communists, people are always a government resource – never individuals. Where the state is supreme and individuals exist only to serve the state, these kinds of environmental abuses and disasters are at their worst. (See China Hush: Amazing Pictures, Pollution in China)
In the eyes of the Barbados Government, China can do no wrong. Like a dog begging for a cookie, Barbados will do anything and say anything for China – just as long as we know we can pick up some scraps thrown our way.
Let China abduct pregnant women off the street, hold them down and take their babies from their wombs… that’s no problem for our government. Let China provide our Haggatt Hall Football Club with footballs made by Christians held in slave camps… no problem so long as the footballs are free.

China and Barbados to establish ties on environmental issues

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados Government (BGIS) — Barbados and China are expected to establish partnerships and formalise cooperation agreements on issues of environmental protection, climate change and renewable energy.
These were among issues discussed when Chinese ambassador, Xu Hong, paid a courtesy call on Minister of the Environment and Drainage, Dr Denis Lowe last week.
During the visit, Lowe said he was aware of China’s commitment to good environmental governance and its concerns about climate change and other issues which occupied the consciousness of global planners.
He added that he wanted to use the opportunity to set the platform for continued dialogue between the two countries and identify areas of partnership which could be pursued.
The minister also highlighted ongoing projects in Barbados which were designed to counter the effects of climate change, protect the environment and develop renewable energy.
Among the projects mentioned were those being undertaken by the Coastal Zone Management Unit; the Sanitation Service Authority, through the Mangrove Pond Green Energy Complex, and the National Botanical Gardens, which were all designed to protect various aspects of the environment.
Lowe added that he was aware the China was a leader in the exploration of technology associated with renewable energy, and noted that Barbados was interested in developing its knowledge base in that area.
He also expressed an interest in sending officials from Barbados to China to develop skills in that area so as to facilitate the transfer of knowledge.
Xu said he believed there was a lot the two countries could do in the areas of renewable energy, environmental protection and climate change, and suggested that future cooperation in those areas be established.
He added that China also wanted to build a direct connection with officials from the Ministry responsible for climate change, and provide opportunities for training in the relevant areas.
On May 30, 2012, Barbados marked the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with China.
