NYTimes is King of Fake News

The article in today's NY Times by Edward Wong takes first prize in the contest run daily in the NY Times to see which article contains the most fake news.

Here's the headline: "China Poised to Take Lead on Climate After Trump's Move to Undo Policies."

Now you would think that the headline would be followed by a story that shows China actually doing something regarding Climate Change.  You would be wrong.

What the article does is quote various Chinese political hacks and leaders saying that they are committed to the Paris Climate Accords.  Of course they are.  The Paris Accords impose absolutely no restrictions on the Chinese regarding carbon emissions or anything else related to Climate Change.  Naturally, the Chinese will stay committed to an agreement that imposes no restrictions whatsoever on their behavior.

The Chinese are the biggest polluters on the planet and have no intention of reversing that behavior.  Maybe, Mr. Wong should take a trip to Beijing to understand what real pollution is all about (or numerous other Chinese cities as well).  Large numbers of average Chinese citizens in China's largest cities daily wear gas masks because of the unbelievably high levels of air pollution.  Those are the facts (left out of Mr. Wong's absurd article).

So,. where are the facts in the article.  There are none.  Typical NY Times fake news.
